Today's tip of the hat - or perhaps 'Facebook Like' - goes to Daniel Manina.
Yes, after Casino Roy's Facebook prank made the news earlier this week, we were alerted to a not dissimilar - but dare we say even more impressive - project by Mr Manina.
Starting in May this year, the creative chap has been posing as his friends' Facebook profile pictures - using wigs and props where needed - and posting them on his Tumblr YourProfilePictures. He's currently up to 130 - his goal to copy them all - and his rules are as follows:
1. My Friend MUST be in the picture
2. If my friend's profile picture is NOT of themself, then I can choose from any of their profile pictures.
3. If there are multiple people in the picture, I MUST imitate my friend.
4. These photos should capture the spirit of the picture and doesn't have to copy it exactly.
5. Wigs and costumes are optional and are only used if needed.
6. Create each picture without photoshopping anything into or out of it. I only use filters to try to replicate the lighting.
7. Have an awesome time with this.
The results, as you can see below, are pretty darn wonderful. And if you want to follow Manina's lead, he's set up this handy website where you can also post your own efforts. Get wig-shopping now!
