That title is a term I haven't hear in quite a while:-) This is terrific! What you might not know is the the recent winner of a certain modelling "reality" show in the US had a winner whose waist was so small that a man could put him fingers around it. It caused quite a stir. This, unintentionally I suspect, becomes a statement on that.

Bravo at the highest level. The idea is fantastic as is the execution, I wish I had made it. In addition to what you did with the the models body I have to commend you for the detail in her hair.

This one is pure fun executed by an artist.

David, you have outdone yourself on this one.  What a pleasant surprise!

GungaJim, How right you are. But oh what fun it is! Thanks a lot!

Mark, You are correct. This image had nothing to do with any reality programme on TV. However, your comment prompted me to research what you were talking about. I now wish I had known about the reality programme before posting this. I may have changed the title. Thanks a lot.

Jim, I have a lot of time on my hands but have no idea who you are referring too. I guess I need to do more research.

Andrew, I am glad you like it. I do like this one myself. Thanks!

Owen, You wishing you had made is the ultimate compliment. Strange as it may seem, I haven't done anything to the body although obviosuly, she doesn't look like this. I will post the original image if you have trouble understanding it. As for detail in the hair. I guess I was lucky. Jim Adams is the master of detail in hair.

Dave, I surprised myself. I am glad it didn't go unnoticed. Thanks a lot.

I think we both appreciate the shape of females. Thanks a lot.

They made as series of movies. Unfortunately Nora was overdressed.
