Natasha Henstridge by SquirrelShaver Natasha Henstridge by SquirrelShaver
This here is something I started a few years ago, but since my daughter was born I haven't had much time or money to lay into. It's a custom Lego mosaic of actress metasha Henstridge (Species, The Whole Nine Yards, Red Planet) that's almost half done. the chunk missing on the left is a plate that I lost somewhere. it's crazy, how do you lose something like that? I don't know but I did... Dork

Anyway this will measure over 7ft tall and 5 ft wide when done. I used my 17" laptop to show a size comparison.

Looking at it now makes me want to plow my mortgage payment and finish. ;)

- 23,040 pieces so far*

It's really great, but I have to say (I'm not sure if it's a tile or something on the lens)

That random darker block (2nd tile down on the right) would drive me mental :D

I've been thinking of taking this one apart and re doing it as Keeley Hazell. <img src=\"http://th02.deviantart.net/fs31/300W/i/2008/226/d/3/Poolside___08_by_gzeus01.jpg\" alt="Poolside_08" />

Actually... I was thinking.... since your daughter is taking up most of your time... she'd be the perfect one to use as inspiration for your next one.

haha. Truely, with a little help from Photoshop I've been able to creat a nice blueprint of how to pull this off. Honestly all the difficult brain work is done. Now it's just a matter of finding time to lay the bricks.
