Collage Obsession: Alter Egos

I was recently invited to be a member of the creative team on the Collage Obsession challenge blog! This week is my first turn at posting a challenge.

The challenge topic I came up with is "Alter Egos." The premise is that most people at some time in their lives (even if it's only on Halloween) dream of being someone else. The challenge is to illustrate what you think a particular person (or animal) really wants to be. You can visit the Collage Obsession blog and see my complete posting at http://collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.com/.

Below is my interpretation of the challenge, using an image of two Japanese women from Dover Designs. Other image credits:  beth rimmer, joessistah, plaisanter.

It's amusing to see those sedate Japanese ladies hanging by their toes as they "fly through the air with the greatest of ease". Nicely done.
