Shop-a-Mini Contest

As Lira would say, I haz skillz.

I do not, though, have any serious photo-editing skillz.

So, it should be easy to impress me and earn a patch in my new contest; apply your skillz in Photoshop, Gimp or even Paint to join a Mini with anything else.

Caitlinsdad's hybrid of my Mini and Thunderbird 2 (below) was the inspiration for this contest, so he has already won a patch.
  • You can join the Mini with anything you like - animal, mineral, vegetable, even celebrity.
  • You must use a Classic Mini (any model), not the BMW version.
  • To win a patch, your image must impress, both with creativity and the level of skill exhibited.
  • The judge's decision is final and potentially rather arbitrary.
Ready... steady... shop!

EDIT: This contest ends June 30th, midnight GMT

this obviously doesn't count as a shop since it's real....but if you weren't told that it's real you'd think it's a shop

Dump Truck engine in a mini , this thing is just nuts

I have tried...I wanted to put dragonfly wings on one.....and I got the one side looking good (with Gimp) but I can't get the other side.....I have no idea why though.

Still 27.5 hours to go...
The cool hours of the evening, I am working, the hot hours of the day time, I am home, and don't feel like moving much......but I am still trying...

Few people are aware of Morris's contribution to manned space exploration. Due to it's compact size and weight, the Mini was perfect for moon exploration as it could be easily packed below the lunar lander for transport.

i wish i could have gotten rid of the red glow on the mini. but:
A) i forgot that it was there for a minute
B) i had set a 20 minute limit for the chop (since i was on lunch)
C) it's fun to imagine (at least in the first image) that he's parked outside of an intergalactic strip joint and that's the glow from the neon lights.

Ah, I thought it was the glow from a landing light or something...
