A photo of a woman's legs has some internet users wondering if their eyes are playing tricks on them.
An optical illusion reminiscent of the Blue Dress, White Dress controversy has some asking whether the woman's legs are shiny -- potentially oversaturated with oil or lotion -- or marked with white paint.
"Why are your legs so shiny?" one commenter asked.
One person said the photo looks like the woman is wearing "plastic tights."
Others were sure that markings in the photo showed paint.
"Without a doubt, white paint," one person wrote.
@kingkayden Without a doubt, white paint. There are no light reflections or distortions on the legs as there would be if oiled.

The caption for the photo, which was originally posted on Instagram in September, tells the answer.
"I like the feeling of paint on my skin," the Instagram user wrote.

An Oregon teenager has gained lots of attention online after posting a photo of her school ID card.
June Kyra Dela Chica, 17, used makeup to mimick the likeness of The Matchmaker, the character who deems Mulan an unfit wife at the beginning of the first movie in the series.
Dela Chica, a senior at Aloha High School in Beaverton, Oregon, said she had been waiting since her freshman year to take the creative ID picture, according to KPTV.
She also said a photographer was skeptical of taking her photo when she sat down with her made-up face.
"Once the makeup was on, I moved my way to the pictures station and lined up,” Dela Chica told Buzzfeed. "One of the ladies was very open-minded and laughed. The other lady -- who was actually taking my photo -- was very grumpy and rude. I remember her saying, 'I don’t know if you can take this photo. Are the admins okay (with it)?'"
"I replied with, 'The admins said if I'm okay with showing my face like this to hundreds of people then go on ahead. And if it's really that bad, I can always retake it,'" Dela Chica said. "She shrugged and replied with a simple, 'Okay.'"
The teenager, who said she normally doesn't get much attention on social media, has had her tweet of the Disney-inspired ID favorited more than 200,000 times.

This is the stuff legends are made of.
According to Mashable, Imgur user keventure and his friends had seen countless photos on Tinder with poor lighting and boring backgrounds. In an effort to stand out and spice up their profile pictures on the app, they did what any young bachelors looking for a mate would do; they headed to IKEA!
Hopefully, any potential matches won't notice the price tags in all the photos!

ORLANDO, Fla. —
Jordan Alexander did not think that her annoyance on a Disney ride would be so popular on the Internet.
Like most theme park rides, Disney World's Splash Mountain snaps images of park-goers at the height of the ride.
Alexander was not excited.
She wanted her husband, Steven, to go on the ride with her.
"It was a long day. I had bronchitis, I had a crying baby and my husband informed me that he doesn't have it in him to ride my favorite ride," Alexander told WSTM, explaining her expression in the photo.
"It was hot and I was getting tired, but she really wanted to go on Splash Mountain and I had promised her earlier that I would go on it with her," her husband said. "At the time I was just beat and I said, 'I don't think I'm going to go on Splash Mountain.' She said, 'Fine, then I'm going to go on by myself."
Jordan Alexander planned to get her husband back in time for the photo op.
"I kind of practiced it the whole way," she said. "And by the time we got to the last drop I didn't know where the camera was and so I just guessed and looked over and took the picture and that was that."
"When she first showed me the photo, I just lost it," Steven Alexander said. "How could you not? I was like, 'Did you coordinate this with them?' Because it was so perfect."
Steven Alexander decided to share the image on Reddit March 2, and the image only increased in popularity since then.
It has been viewed over 2 million times.
The Reddit feed spawned countless Photoshop images of Jordan Alexander.
"The Mona Lisa one cracked us up the first time we saw it we just died laughing," Steven Alexander told WHAM. "Then the one where she is Photoshopped in with all the current politicians running for president was really hilarious," he said.
Jordan Alexander doesn't mind her new fame.

Most people look back on their preteen and teen years with some level of embarrassment.
Parents love to share photos of children in their awkward stages with family friends and those soon to be married into the family.
But one woman, Shannon Welch, shared a photo of her boyfriend online for all Internet users to see.
The photo, posted on Welch's Reddit account, show's her boyfriend, Clyff, at 13 years old, and he looks exactly like a present-day Natalie Portman.
In the photo, Clyff, who's now 24, sports glossy, shoulder-length hair. Clyff's eyebrows, eyes, nose and lips look similar to Portman's features. They even both have similar beauty marks on their left cheeks.
Welch said she didn't notice the resemblance until Clyff sent her the sixth-grade photo of himself as a joke.
"I never really noticed until he sent me the side by side comparison when we first started dating," she said. "He wasn't on any social media when we met so I had no way to look at photos of him, so he sent me that photo to 'hold me over' until we saw each other next in person."
She continued: "I laughed and just thought it was two photos of Natalie. A week later, (when we saw each other in person) he had to convince me it was him I didn't believe him until he showed me his actual sixth grade class photo."
Welch said she's not the only one who initially noticed the resemblance.
"When I first started to meet his friends they would all ask if I'd seen his Natalie Portman photo," she said. "It was always the first thing everyone pointed out."
But according to Welch, Clyff, isn't embarrassed at all.
"He's so proud of it. He's a big fan of Natalie and hopes she sees this," she said. "I, of course, am a big fan too."

Here are more recent photos of Clyff without the locks. People have joked that he's no longer Portman's doppleganger and could no longer be her "stunt double."
