Bedroom posters

SystemSystem Posts: 8,619 Staff Moderation Team
As you were growing up, what posters did you have on your bedroom wall?

Answering my own query, for several years, I had pictures of dinosaurs. I was obsessed with them. Pictures of dinosaurs all over the walls. Then there was the phase when everything was to do with Sonic the Hedgehog. From about nine, I had nothing on the walls for the next four years, until a poster appeared one day (and I still don't know who bought it) of a completely naked Kelly Brook. :blush:

    Yeah yeah, sure ;)

    I had a couple of random pop stars posters, but when I redecorated my room in Year 7 I COVERED one wall in pictures of me and my friends... when I redecorated it again, I've gone for a more minimlistic look... theres a few photo frames around and a couple on the walls...

    Erm...I didn't. Until I was like 10, when I started putting up pictures of 911 and Britney.

    I was another dinosaur obsessive though. I still have my Complete Book of Dinosaurs somewhere. Oh yes.

    I had a fucking huge Scottish flag on my wall throughout my entire childhood, thanks Dad. :thumb:

    I never went in for posters after that though. Now, I have got an enormous poster (I prefer to call it a print) of the Nashville Skyline cover on my bedroom wall. Love it.

    I never had any posters on my walls they were on my roof. Mainly movie and music posters. Pink Floyd, U2 and Hendrix taking up most of the space.

    My walls were painted blue on 3 walls. 2 were left plain and the biggest one had the Rangers FC emblem painted on it.

    The remaining wall was painted white and EVERYONE who entered my room for 4 years or so signed their name or did a kinda doodle. Looked real smart. Was a big trip down memory lane when it came to redecorating and checking some of the old names and stuff.

    I had an England flag, various posters of girls in a state of undress, a couple of drug posters and big fuck off rave posters everywhere. Now I have nothing.

    Same as I got know - A Corvette - A Lambo Diablo, F355, Kawasaki Ninja, and Honda Firestorm.

    Woo. Used to have a giant Royal Navy one about all the boats and armaments, but I took it down cos it kept falling off. :lol:

    I wasn't allowed any until we moved into our new house, but I generally had film ones, or bands. I still have a Kill Bill poster on the back of the door to cover the stuff on there until the door gets replaced.

    As a child I was mad on the Lion King, so I had a huge 3D cut out of a scene from the film... A little older and I had Boyzone posters everywhere...a little after that came Backstreet Boys posters and lots of Leonardo Dicaprio posters.
    I had a huuuge poster of a tiger face 'roaring' which was just lovely...
    Then came Black Sabbath, Offspring and HIM posters everywhere.

    Nowadays I have art and photographs framed rather than posters blu-tacked to the wall! Anything that goes on my wall now, is framed in the same black boxed frame :thumb:

    I have never had a bedroom poster, except one - which is more of a painting. It shows the ten most renowned skyscrapers.
