Arrow Beauty Pageant retouches- glitz makeover help?

Hi so I'm a pageant mom and my daughter is entry a high glitz national pageant. SHe's 12, and we need new photos. We've taken new photos with out photographer, and to save money, I downloaded GIMP to edit my photos myself.
I figuredout how to make the skin all smooth, but I need help with the eyes, hair, lips, and teeth. She has braces, I would like to hide them.
Here is how I want her to look:

http://www.google.com/imgres?q=glitz...r:17,s:87,i:42

any help on eyes, skin, smile, hiding braces, cheeks, and creating big hair and making everything... perfect and doll-looking?

Have you ever thought about how unhealthy this might be for your daughter?

Clearly you have absolutely no taste in.... well anything. I hope your daughter one day surpasses you in this regard.

You answered your own question by stating that you want your daughter "perfect and doll-looking". Is any child, or for that matter anyone, perfect? Love the child as she is. If you want to retouch photos, that is great. Kids love having their zits removed, etc. But even a child knows that perfection is impossible no matter how much they try to perform for others.

If on the other hand, you were like the rest of us who sometimes do not communicate clearly, there are several threads here at RTP that address retouching of children for pageants and much on beauty retouches. All you have to do is a search. Also, there are youtube rentals available through RTP that will more than address the issue of "perfect" skin.

Considering that she linked to photos where half the information about the subject was essentially removed through bad post work, I think you're just responding to an unintelligent person with bad taste. There's nothing that looks perfect about the linked photos. They look either like they took an eraser to it, or like they're viewing the blocking in stage of a tacky painting. They just don't provide a lot of information when done like this, but again I think the OP lacks the comprehension.

this stuff makes me sick, being a father of an 8 year old. Disgusting behavior. I hope it is a joke.
