Send That's My Face two photos of a single human head - one shot from the front, one from the side - and they will make an astonishingly cool yet also slightly horrifying 3D, full-color replica of it. It could be your own head. It could be a celebrity's head. It could be the head of Loretta, the girl who swore she would love you forever, but then broke your heart on that terrible night in November of 2003. You still see her face, every time you close your eyes. You reach out in the darkness to feel the warmth and softness of her skin, but all your fingertips find is shadows and sorrow. Now she can be yours again, in colored resin form.
That's My Face has plenty of clever suggestions for things you can do with your second head. You can hang it on the wall! You can make a mask of your own face! You can scale it down and make an action figure with your own head! You can get one with a hollow top and use it for a pencil mug that will make your grandma weep and cross herself like an old gypsy lady in a wolfman movie!
And of course, you can attach your Loretta face to a lifelike mannequin you buy off of Ebay. Then you can dress up your new Loretta in modest but flattering outfits and spend long evenings telling her all of your hopes and dreams.
This Loretta will never criticize you, or laugh at you, or leave you. This Loretta is yours to keep. And if you love her long enough, if you believe hard enough, perhaps one day she will actually speak to you. You will hear Loretta's voice, telling you she loves you. And then, everything will at last be right again.
