Digital Dopplegangers

This week's Strawberry Singh / Winter Jefferson SL Blogger meme is "Avatar Look Alikes Challenge." Of course I had to try this! I grabbed my headshot from the RMK Gothic SIM English blog, and plugged it into the Celebrity Look A like Generator.




The results were jarring.

First I should say, my main avatar is not an attempt at a likeness of a real person, nor was it at any time. (I actually had a manga character in mind.) However there is something definitely something spooky going on here.

I experimented in Photoshop with a split face screen. I showed my results to Fulli. I asked her if I should do this meme. When she picked herself back up off the floor, she said yes. It's very interesting. lol

92% Cate Blanchett.

    1. Haha. They don't have Visual Kei in the celebrity database, but wouldn't that be cool? lol

    2. It would be awesome! Would totally shape-shift my avi to make her similar to one of the Gazette singer.... perhaps? ;D

  3. I never realized before how much Cate Blanchett looks like a handsome, slightly androgynous man. Nice!
