New Monday Photo Shoot #26: Fake!

New Monday Shoot #26: Show us something that's fake in some way. Faux fur, non-alcoholic beer, imitation bacon bits...whatever you like; if it's not real, we want to see it!

Here are a few of the fakiest fakes to be found here at the Museum of the Weird:

This fake stone gargoyle is just a plastic Halloween decoration from Target. It sits on top of my desk. I've faked in the sky and the rooftop here, because, well, why not?

As I understand it, the law against photographing or otherwise reproducing money includes a prohibition on using real cash in tv and films. (Seems a little crazy to me, but there you go.) The bills above are prop money from the Robert Altman film Popeye, which starred Robin Williams in the title role. Not only are they from the "United State of Sweethaven," Sweethaven being the town where Olive Oyl and her family live, but they're also a little larger than real money.

Your turn! Photograph some unreal something, post it to your blog or journal, and be sure to link from there to here, and back to your blog in the comments below. I'll be back in a week with our celebration of the ersatz!
