Title: As an ugly....Zane?
Post by: Beth-la on December 16, 2010, 03:21:29 PM
Gah!!!! Terrible thought.....we have no idea what Zane looked like as an ugly. He could have had blond hair and blue eyes. Or brown hair with green eyes. He could have looked liked anything!


And, and, and!!! What color do you suppose his hair is as a pretty? I mean, before he dyes it black? I'd think dark brown, because it would be easier to dye it black if it was already kinda dark....

Oooooh this is interesting.....

But he dyes his hair....so it really could be any color.

I don't think his gold eyes would've been blue before though....

i do. i think he probably had dark hair because i agree that it would be easier to dye that way, and maybe blue eyes.

I thought about this, and you know how in both Pretties and Specials, even though he'd barely seen a pretty or a special before, David recognized Tally? He'd only seen her before as an ugly. Therefore I think the operation(s) make you resemble your former self somewhat. As an ugly, Zane probably looked quite a lot like he does as a pretty, only, well... pretty.  :P

That's a very good point.

But the Tally's on the Pretties cover and Uglies cover are COMPLETELY different. I would think that just by those pictures, they change quite a bit. I dont really know what Zane would look like, but I know it would be nothing like he was in Pretties.

Scott had no choice over the covers.

Yeah. And covers hardly ever stay exactly true to the book.

Tally also recognized Peris as a pretty and Shay as a pretty/special. What would be the point of looking completely, absurdly unrecognizable after the operation?

Yup. Like on the pretties cover, was the blond dude supposed to be Zane?

hehe

Anyway, I pictue him w/dark hair and light colored eyes as an ugly too. Especially because the operation would change some of their other noticable features, such as nose, lips, ears, etc., so they probably don't make them too different as pretties

I think he coulda looked like anything before cuz doesn't the pretty op make you look like a certain standard and the pretty commitie wouldn't want anyone to have an advantage of looks.....

i always pictured zane as the guy on the front but i know he looks nothing like that.
Title: Re: As an ugly....Zane?

Welcome Newbie!

I think that Zane would look relatively the same as an ugly accept... well... ugly.

Post by: trueUgly on March 13, 2012, 07:30:28 AM
I... I guess I never really thought about it, until now. But he did dye his hair black as a Pretty, so that would explain the night-and-day differece in his hair, and as a Pretty, I always imagined him just like this guy I know (his name is Zane too!), but I'm not sure what Pretty Zane looks like because my copy still hasn't come yet!  >:(
