World Cup 2014: London artist turns herself into the trophy with staggering results

An imaginative London artist has jumped on the World Cup bandwagon and turned herself into a human replica of the famous trophy.
Emma Allen, 33, posted a photo of herself covered in gold body paint with her hands over her face to mimic the design. Beat that for fancy dress.
In just 24 hours, her picture has attracted more than 500,000 web views with former England footballer Ian Wright among those to compliment her.
“You’re awesome! I bow to your gift :)” he wrote on Twitter, before making the image his profile picture.
Allen spent two-and-a-half hours transforming herself in front of a mirror in her Elephant and Castle flat, before posing for a selfie.
She wore a swimming cap to make her head look like the eath and painted the intricate detail on with different shades of gold.
The black background was created by painting her arms black and propping herself against a black pillow.
