So I was really excited about this challange (it's my first entry!)
I kind of treated it like my halloween costumes and tried to focus on the little details....

So here we are...



I knitted her a mini version of my favorite scarf (wavy from Knitty) and dressed her in a comfy red tshirt and black pants with a messy pony tail... I gave her some red lipstick (she came in pink) and brown eyes (she had blue) and luckily we're both redeads (we won't talk about natural or not...) and we're both very pale to start with...

We have the same tattoos (I think mine hurt more, though)





Same ring and nail polish


and the same earings (cherries, of course!)




This was so much fun!!! I can't wait for the next challenge...

wowsers... that looks just like you! Amazing... maybe it was me just being really really stupid, but when it loaded I just stared and thought 'why did you post the same picture of herself twice?' cool!

Your entry is impossibly fantastic. With the shots and angles you were using I had to do a double take! Real you and mini you are so similar.

Thanks! (and thanks everyone!) There was a lot of swearing involved with the tiny needles.... It reminded me why I haven't used them since August when I made the project I bought them for, lol.

This challenge was so much fun, and I love looking at all of the entries!!!  I definitly want to join up with another challenge soon.  It's just cool thinking of your own way of doing something and then seeing all the different ways people do the same challenge... such talent out there on this board!!!
