Gnome in a Bottle

Keydar,

I have always been impressed with the old "ship in a bottle" scene where an artist/craftsman carefully creates a vessel that can be pushed into a bottle neck and then completely propped up to give the effect that it magically entered a space too small for it.

Now, I know it’s not possible to fit Miji into a vial. I’m not that silly. But could Keydar and Gigz fit him into a flask?

I am asking in the comic section because if you are able to do this I would love to see it. If you can’t, but still attempt it, I’d love to see it.

Ideally we would have a Gnome in a Bottle. Such a fine mantle piece for any Undead, Tauren, Blood Elf, Human, Dwarf, Orc, Troll, Night Elf, Draenei… well now that I think about it, it’s a sweet little memento for anyone who isn’t a Gnome. I bet the Goblins would even find a way to profit on this.

If it were in a bottle you could just put it in your backpack and it would follow you everywhere!

If Miji is anything like my Gnome, you would find yourself in a world of pain if you tried stuffing him into a bottle. I know Sango (my warrior) would end up stuffing the one who tried into the bottle instead. :D

We Gnomes may be small, but that simply gives us a higher badass density.

So bring it. :)

There is a difference between saying something is disgusting and saying NSFW.

I don't think that horrible describes that picture. It is beyond.

oh geez, it's like a freaken car accident. I just know it's gonna be ugly and nasty, but I just can't help but look. But in this case, the name gives me enough of an idea that I might be able to resist.

But just to keep the topic on hand, what you need is a 3D printer. Then you can print a replica of yourself and try to cram it in the bottle:

I do agree it would be cool to have a gnomes in a bottle. I would rather watch them all burn... Speaking of which how cool would it be if Taurens had a Gnome punt racial that one shotted all gnomes upon landing
