I made a silly "Create a baby" program for a baby shower -_-;;

I made a silly program to create a baby!

For my friend's baby shower, they had the idea of getting together a bunch of pictures of themselves and cutting out their features to allow party goers to construct predictions on what their baby would look like. They were having trouble getting the various pictures to print out at a normalized size that'd work so me being the computer/art guy, asked if I could help. After sorting through the pictures, I decided I could resize them, but they'd all look like crazy magazine ransom note cutout constructions.

Seriously, scary looking. . .

Wouldn't it be better to just make a program where you could choose which features to use and then print them out on a printer instead? So I made this thing.

You could make some truly scary looking babies here too. . . but also reasonably human looking ones as well =P

The husband's features are on the left, wife's on the right and multiple clicks would cycle through available versions. I also added in a couple for fun thingies because why not? I guess it ended up working out okay at the shower =)

Ripped from their Instagram! The bottom right was the "winner"

It's stupid I know, but I love that we live in a world where this kind of nonsense can just happen =P

In all, the thing took around 6 or so hours to make. Most of the time was spent sifting through pictures and color correcting so that they'd work with each other. I'd say 4 hours on the "art" side with 2 hours on the coding.

I'd post a Persona screenshot here if I wasn't so incredibly lazy.
