Are you ready to " Simpsonize " yourself ?



I would like today to let you know about something really fun. And if you are a Simpsons fan, it will be even better, as in a few minutes you will use the "Simpsonizer" to "Simpsonize" yourself in a Simpsons character, all this with 3D animation!

It was created last year with the release of the Simpsons movie, but it's very easy, it's free, and if you don't know it, you're going to enjoy it. As i've said, this Simpsonizer is very fun to use, here is how it works: Go to http://simpsonizeme.com/ , choose your language, and prepare a picture of you in your photo files.

Check that your picture is a close-up portrait and not in black and white. Also, the file must have a minimum resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Once you're ready, click on "upload photo" and choose your picture file.



Once the picture is download, it will appear in the center of the "simpsonizer". Here, i choose the picture of an old friend - very good artist, by the way.



The simpsonizer is going to "analyze" your picture to identify how you look, and once it's done, you will specify if you're a man or a woman, your age ( you can choose between 1 and 220 years old! ) , what kind of Simpsons you want to look, etc... Next, just click on "simpsonize me".



And then.....here is the result! You are now a Simpsons character!



Now, you can improve your "simpsonization" as on the next page, you'll be able to choose different kind of eyebrows, glasses, mouth, nose, hairstyle, accessories, etc...to help your simpsons character to get closer to how you really look!



Once it's done, the final result appear, and you can look at it in close-up shot...



...or large one. And you can send an email to your friends so they can see how you look as a Simsons character!



You can now choose a background. There 5 or 6 different one, all of course have a perfect Simpsons background style.



Now that you have create your own Simpsons character, what else can be done? Well, to create your own merchandise products with your character! You can create your own mug and have it send to you ( or anybody you wish, i suppose ) and you can even choose the background colour...



Or you can create and order a t-shirt...



Or a baseball cap...



Or a framed portrait...



And even that-kind-of-thing-for-babies-that-i-forgot-the-name...



You may have notice on the pictures above a small "burger king" logo in the corner, that'sbecause the Simpsonizer seems to be sponsored by the burger company. And of course if you want to order your merchandise products, you'll have to pay for them. But this "simpsonization" works pretty well , it takes only five minutes, and it's fun to do. So, jump to http://simpsonizeme.com/ and enjoy your new "Simpsons" life!
