First challenge and I really enjoyed it!

I chose Carmen Miranda to emulate in sock monkey form. She rose above such a hard life and had an amazingly fast success but never forgot where she came from. Plus, she was beautiful!

No before shot. It was a simple kit from Wal-Mart that I had bought forever ago and never was inspired until now. The dress and turban material are from an upholstery company sample book. The eyelashes are fringe, the earrings are mine. The photos are as close to the hot tropics foliage as I could get  Smiley

That monkey is very well-endowed.... I like her eyelashes too.

Good job!

Roll Tide! heh! As you can prolly tell, I'm a proud Birminghamster!

princesakati, I started to add the fruity hat then thought it would be stereotyping her so chose her mamacita song as inspiration instead.

Thanks everyone for looking.
