In my last post, I started a little contest to see if my readers could match the Miis I made on my Wii with their real life celebrity or acquaintance counterpart (this is rapidly becoming the craziest sentence I’ve ever written).
A few of you responded (enough for me to crown a winner).
Sean wins the prize, which I shall bestow upon him when I catch up with him later next week for a little pre-Christmas toast and cheer.
Before I reveal each Mii’s true identity, I decided to make this a recurring post. Crafting these Miis are a lot of fun (and take very little time to do). I am certainly not the most artistic person so for those that I miss the mark on, I apologize. I can write but I can’t draw.
Anyway, in addition to participating in the next round, let me know your thoughts on how these things are coming out. Every single Mii I post will be hand-crafted by me – yet in the interest of full disclosure – there are a fair number of websites popping up that are devoted to teaching you how to craft celebrity Miis. For this first round, I grabbed 2 ideas from them (although these were crafted by me on my machine) and therefore there are bound to be differences. I actually think one of mine came out better than the tutorial site – while the other was much weaker. The third celebrity was designed by me and came about completely accidentally. I was actually drafting a Mii for my boy Ollie and I accidentally created the uber-white rapper.
Anyway – enjoy. Round II will be up tomorrow.
5. Conan O’Brien – (From the Site. Mine is better.)

3. Ali G – (This is my own creation. I started making Ollie and he became Ali G.)
2. Mix Master Mook
1. Ah-nuld – (From the site. Mine is worse.)
