Not really expecting too much for this. More like just something to enter for the team.

Kind of a variation on my Halloween costume. What I'm sitting on is the giant heap of tacky green carpet we just ripped up from our floors to be replaced with fake wood. Whoopee.

I would have probably come up with something better, but it was too hot to think properly. Yikes *goes and gets bottle of ice water*

post challenge:
Well, it actually did better than I thought.
Thanks everybody, for the votes, comments and favs. Means a lot ^-^

Oooh. I like it. The massive size of the foamy scrap stuff makes you look small, like a dark pixie or something. Love the processing, by the way. Nice hat and boots.

I keep coming back to this photo again and again. It's so unique and wonderful! Like others have said you look like a magic fairy or a doll.The pose is adorable and so are you! Your outfit is both innocent and sophisticated at the same time and the boots add interest to the composition. Technicals are very well done IMHO. Bravo!

I'll be looking for this one on the front page. I'm not really sure what about this shot speaks to me, but it does.

Cool image. Nice colours and the grass in the foreground gives it a weird sense of depth.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 01:18:49 PM
There is just something about this photo...the grass on the left makes it look like tiny scraps of mats, yet there you are, full size on top of them. Weird. I love it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/09/2006 12:48:25 PM
I like the fantastic mood it creates. Nice job.

Great lighting.. I like the use of the old rugs too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 07:28:53 PM
I don't know how you did this to make it look miniature, but it's very wicked way cool. Great constume and makeup, too.

you honestly look like a doll!! looks great :))
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/06/2006 04:00:27 PM
A lovely artistic rendition and a breath of fresh air, that is, this visual breaks from the rest to present us an interesting fanciful study that is highly complemented by the makeup, the attire and then the wonderful pose. Bump.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 12:17:21 PM
this is really artisitic and well done. I wish I could see your face just a little more, but over all a wonderful self portrait ;)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 11:33:48 AM
I think there is too much brightness on the trash and not enough on the subject. It is like a picture of trash with a girl instead of a picture of a girl with trash.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 10:33:07 AM
great! DOF and perspective make you look like a doll -8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 10:11:25 AM
just a teeny more light on your head and i'd be completely in love with this shot, instead of just slightly...8

not sure this is legal, but I love it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 07:19:33 AM
despite of the focus (not on your face) I like the miniature effect! good choice to use this trash to make art of it :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 06:04:52 AM
wow! hope this is legal as it deserves a ribbon...wow, a 10 from me

That looks so unreal. Reminds me of the minitown in Beetlejuice. Good job
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/05/2006 02:05:46 AM
Very cool. Seems overedited especially around the sides.

Certainly something different. Nicely done.
