Paging all narcissists and budding serial killers! Have I got a website for you! It's called That's My Face, and it's a nightmare floom ride through the uncanny valley.
You can upload photos of yourself and it'll make a 3D render of your head. It would be cute if they stopped right there, but That's My Face takes a leap into Leatherface territory by allowing you to make expresionless masks and tchotchkes out of your own face. You can even make a doll out of yourself...that you can...DO THINGS to...because you're the only one who really understands what you need...and what you need is MORE THINGS done to you.
Eyes Without a Face 2.0, y'alls! (via Urlesque)
They've thankfully provided an infomercial:
I of course am both a narcissist AND a budding serial killer, so I gave it a shot. I submitted this photo:
And then it gave me this render:
I have a cleft nose. Awesome. Slap that on an action figure and call it G.I. Thalidomide Baby! Well, that's more terrifying than I anticipated. I'm going to take my face to MyHeritage and compare it to celebrities to make myself feel better. Wait, what?!?! I'm apparently a dead ringer for Hal Sparks, star of VH1 nostalgia shows and the elevator scene in "Spider Man." More awesome. sigh
Ah, well...I'm sure I probably effed up the process at That's My Face somewhere along the line, so don't be dissuaded by my abortion from giving it a shot. It's free and only takes about an hour. Post your horrifying e-mug in the comments below!
