So it was my boyfriend's birthday recently, and I gave him a "tony doll" (tony is his name) for his bday gift.  I bought each separate part on ebay-- the shoes, jeans, and shirt, and put them together to make his favorite outfit.  Most of the parts I bought from a guy on ebay who specializes in selling GI joe clothes, heads and bodies.  Since my bf is 1/2 asian, the asian head was the one I found to look the most like him!  

Tony's favorite tshirt is a threadless shirt that says "touch me i'm famous," so I dyed a plain white gi jo tshirt yellow with yellow dye, and did a heat transfer of the actual design on the shirt.  He usually wears brown suade shoes and jeans with the tshirt, along with a green and yellow bracelet that I made him.  I thought that the final product turned out pretty nicely and he liked the gift!  Here is the picture of the doll, and here are to pictures of tony:

I don't  think it's unrelated - I was wondering the same thing...where were you two in the last photograph - excellent job on the tee-shirt - I actually want one for myself!

It was actually in front on the big buddha in hong kong.  I thought it was somewhat off topic of the challenge too, but i messaged the lady in charge, and she said that it fit under the category.  O well just sharing crafty ideas!  :-)

Nice job. I think it's much harder to come up with a twin starting with a manufactured doll, and you managed it quite nicely.
