when I created my self-portrait for the SELF by Self website! I took a picture of my shadow and then a picture of my face to put on it.
It's OK, you can laugh. Stephanie already did. Several times, actually. Before I trimmed my furry grassy shadow in Photoshop (think linebacker with a tiny head) she said,
"You look like you're going to ring the bell!"
Apparently I looked like Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame. She also thought I looked like a cop in those sunglasses. A green Yeti cop, maybe.
