Bow, bad hair, missing teeth, in that order.

It is the huge bow.

The hairstyle is strange, but at least there is one. As far as teeth go, that is how kids look and it can have its charm.

I ask my daughter to close her mouth for photos because her teeth need a bit of work and they are not missing. I hope that doesn't make me a mean mom. :oops:

Fake window in the background and horrible wall color.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Santa's strange forked beard that disappears into the trim of his suit?

Thanks S.Horton, I would rather see her big smile instead of a frown because she was self-conscious about her missing teeth.

Me eye just keeps going straight to the window frame, it grabs my attention more than anything else. The red bow is also an attention getter taking the eye away from the face.

I don't have any problem with the teeth, that is just the character of a child of that age and doesn't look wrong in any way.

Yeah, you're right if you're talking about how you feel about your assumptions about me.

See that link, ignore user? Buh bye.

The biggest thing that jumps out at me is the impression that Santa is really Mrs. Claus. Not sure why, but "he" seem too feminine. Otherwise, the dark window is problematic.
