from those photos

90% of it should be called "project airbrush"

There's already a game out like this...

It's called "face training" and is part of the "Adult's DS" series. Comes with a camera that goes in slot 2 and a stand for the DS + camera combo.

@Ian re. Amine

"Always knew she was an Amine for Lester!"

Is that like an Amiga, but smaller and faster and more powerful?

Having seen her Playmobile representation, I can believe that's the case.

But seriously folks, isn't this a bit sexist? Where are the facilities and advice for men? I've spent years worrying about the dark circles under my eyes and just can't get rid of them.

The only problem I see

Is "hardcore" players will HATE this. You know the type... "I hate the wii. Its distroying gaming by making other people like games. Why is Cooking Mama not an FPS." I think there heads will explode over this one... Possibly a good thing.

Heh

it'll probably go down a bomb, Japanese (well I think it's that region in general) have a thing for those photo things where they put little pictures and drawings all over the photo. I can't remember what they're called.

@@Ian re. Amine

Nothing stopping boys from tarting themselves up if they like, besides I think the boy market is amply catered for.

You need a foundation with a slighly sparkly finish. And lots of uplifting cream at night.

Homely?

Tsk tsk El Reg

Whilst I accept it's vital for a UK-based tech website to have colonial correspondents, nevertheless perhaps you could brief them on different definitions for words on this side of the pond.

'Homely' does not mean ugly in the UK, it means something more akin to caring and house-proud, even pleasant.

Paris because she isn't homely by either definition.

Oh, and she's gote my vote.

Homely means 'plain/unattractive' on both sides of the pond

(But not ugly, I should point out. Just plain.)

That is all.

They're called purikura ("print club").

Incidentally, you can fit sixteen people inside one of those things.
