I bought a couple cardboard prints for 50cents each local thrift store about a week ago, and when I saw this challance I instantly thought of my matador! It took hours to do, and now that my back feels demolished from hours of leaning over a picture, here are the results!

Before

After
The new Mr. Fancypants, adorned with hundreds of beads!

That's lovely!  Real matadors' costumes are very highly embellished with lots of brocade, sequins, beading and other fancies.

Wow.  I don't think I'd have the patience to glue all those beads on.  Very nice.

OMG!!!!! When I saw the title.. I thought "I have a bullfight painting"  and its the same one you used!!!!!

Mine was given to me by my ex-boss, he said he found it at our work?!  I used to work at EB Games, so I'm not even sure HOW that was possible...

Good work though... That's way more festive than the boring original (which is hanging in my hallway)

I really just picture a Saturday Night Live skit with "Matador Fancy Pants" as the star.

I have been giggling about it all day!

Maybe even a guest appearance by Antonio Bandaras!

Awesome!
