Create a Lego Profile Pic
How to turn yourself into a Lego minifigure!
Want a fun new avatar or profile pic? If you're Lego geek looking for a cool picture to use on your profile, check out this snazzy Lego version of myself that I made. It's surprisingly accurate, aside from the frustrating lack of pink hair as an option. My hair is purple almost as often as it's pink - and often both at once - so it's close enough. And I really have that "Giant Squid or Bust!" Squidoo coffee mug!
You can create a self-portrait or make your friend into Lego Minifigs - It's simple and easy to doat Reasonably Clever.
Just in case you're curious, I'm not affiliated with Reasonably Clever/Mini-Mizer in any way - I just think it's a cool little web toy and wanted to share it with the Squidoo community.

Whew, this one has pink hair - much better. :) You should also note that the category of "facial hair" also includes a few other items like the bunny or kitty whiskers shown here, as well as freckles and such. Similarly, you'll find pirate eyepatches under eyebrows. Play with all the options, see what you can come up with!
