You know the love Mia has for pets! (see Mia's Puppy House & Heartlake Vet)
So why not trying to start her own business out of it?!
She has the skills and the tools for a pet grooming business but not the budget for a store...!
So instead she borrowed the chopped off-road van her brother used to drive and started the Pet Grooming Van business!

Very nice entry! I like the minifig hands technique you used. It's one to keep note of. Good luck with the contest! :thumbup:

Now I need to start building my entries...

Very clever piece usange!  :thumbup:  Personnally, I prefer brighter colors, but the white looks great, and the background is very well done too!

It looks cool, but a it seems that it can't fit minifig... I mean minidoll inside, becasue it looks like it's made for diferent scale.

Nice little van.  Interesting use of the skater's blades.  I see it has stretched tires in the back.  Definitely a guy thing.  I wonder how her brother feels about her sticking pink ribbon and flower on it.   :laugh:

A good point about her brother's reaction. If I had done this to anything my four brothers had built, I would have had to run away from home for a few days until things cooled down!
A great concept for a woman wanting to go into business on her own! Perfect for our Friends!

You are right, it can't fit a minifig nor a torso :/
It's really hard to make detailed exterior with enough space inside to fit minifigs at this 6-wide scale, don't you think?
I've undestood from all my attempts on many minifig scaled vehicles that you can build either detailed exterior either wide interior for minifigs!
So i've quitted trying to fit minifigs for long time now cause i basically want a really detailed shaping for my vehicles!
