Offbeat Sights from the Expo West Show

Yesterday was the final day of the Natural Product Expo West show in Anaheim. This trade show never fails to provide plenty of material for the blog. So in between my appointments, I set out to capture a few offbeat photos for your viewing pleasure. This photo at left takes first prize as the most bizarre. These four ladies were the attraction for some herbal energy drink booth as I recall. They looked like something out of a Sci-Fi flick with a futuristic twist.
Honorable Mentions...

above: A woman on a stand was holding a nutritional supplement, she kept doing gymnastic moves, which I thought was weird.

Above: "Adam & Eve", complete with fig leaves to cover their private areas.

above: I'm convinced that the woman behind the bottles was a mad scientist, experimenting with flavored oxygen with some kind of healing properties. I was not about to shove some tube up my nose, but it did make for a cool photo op.
A Happy Goodbye...

above: This friendly bear was promoting organic sippy fruit drinks, he was fairly normal until he struck this pose flexing his muscles and growled at the camera!

Well that's my wrap up of the weekend....how was your weekend? Comments are welcome.
Oh I almost forgot:
HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY!

Happy St. Patrick's Day Rick!

Gymnastic girl display does look a bit weird, but I bet it got a lot of attention!

Probably the last thing I'd think of when it comes to sippy fruit drinks would be mean, growling bears with vanity issues. Winnie The Pooh he isn't!

I love the herbal energy girl's hair. You look pretty good too. They obviously shared some of their energy with you.

lmao if I had seen the bear growling I would have reminded him that he IS the dad from Berenstein Bears so he isn't allowed to growl...

Happy Saint Patrick's Day Rick! Hope you and John had a good one. Great photos. I actually know quite a bit about this show as I work in the healthfood industry. Just recently took a job with another company. The M.D. of my last company visted both the Expo East and Expo West shows. I remember him saying how it was on a much larger scale than the British shows and some of the weird and wonderful stands there. I'm sure you had a great visit.
