Have you been looking for a way to kill time and amuse yourself at the same time? Animating your face on a dancing body can be hilarious and entertaining. It is possible to impose your own image as well as those of your friends and family. Spend some free time creating something fun to share with others while spending some free time.
Dancing Body Websites
The idea of putting your own head onto an animated body may seem odd, but once you discover how much fun it is, you will be thoroughly entertained by the results. Play around with your friends’ and family’s photos for even more fun.
Since a few years ago, superimposing actual cropped photos onto computer-generated bodies that dance and shake to music has become a popular internet trend. These days, there are quite a few sites that offer this service, and many get creative with their offerings around the holidays.
Where to Put Your Face on a Dancing Body
Creating dancing images with your own face is becoming increasingly popular on new websites. Some of the following destinations have been around for some time and offer a variety of options.
When it comes to combining human heads with animated bodies, JibJab.com is probably the most elaborate website. Whether you’re playing Santa Claus or an Irish Leprechaun, you can enjoy a wide array of seasonal characters and a wide range of backdrops, from square dancing in a barn to staring in a nightclub.
While JibJab offers a very limited selection of “Starring You” cards for free, you’ll have to upgrade for the full package. Become a member for about $18.00 per year and use all of their services for free. It is a great way to brighten your friends’ and family’s days and have a good laugh with endless options and combinations of cards.
Office Max’s website features a section called Elf Yourself every holiday season. You can visit this fun site during the holidays if you want to change yourself into an elf, or if you want to transform into a few other characters, though it is not available all year round. There was a recent holiday season when you could use the site to “Scrooge” yourself; surely there will continue to be more creative options appearing in the years to come.
A website called FunPhotor.com offers a service that allows you to superimpose your face on a variety of different images. It also contains animations that you can use as part of the process. The service is not free, but you are able to get a wide variety of options for around $50.00, so you are not going to be disappointed.
The Ugly Dance
With The Ugly Dance, you can upload a picture of your face and it will be animated onto a dancing body for free. Among the different outfits that you can choose from, you will find a three-piece suit, gym clothes, a chimpanzee suit, and a leopard-themed outfit.
When you have created your dancing image, you will be able to click on different items to manipulate your dancer, such as “stomp,” “robot,” and “twist.” You can then share your dancing image on Facebook or copy the link and share it with others or add it to a blog or website.
I would like to point out that if you really like the song that plays in the background of the video, you can download it from iTunes or Amazon for about $3 if you are interested.
Use Your Creativity
The first thing I would like to mention is that if you are savvy with graphic design, or if you know someone who does, you can easily make your own animation without using an e-card service or special website like the ones listed above to do so.
If you want to put your face on a dancing body from scratch, then your imagination is the only limit to what you can create, since your creativity is the only thing that limits you.
Fun With Friends
Share the fun dancing animation options available online with your friends by taking advantage of the fun options available online. The software allows you to send an e-card for a special day, make an entire show for a friend or loved one, or even just amuse yourself when you have some time to kill.
It’s safe to say that as the popularity and novelty of such an activity continues to grow, so too will the range of options available online with it.
