Yay! Thanks! I'm a big fan of pictures that reward further study ... I'm glad you like the extra details too!
As for how I did it, there was some pretty straightforward photoshop trickery (since both background figures were played by me), some serendipity (since the set was just a room in our house with a few things rearranged), and a lot of patience (it took a really insane amount of hours to finally get the little guys to stand how I wanted them to in the bottle ... they kept falling over when I tried to glue them in place). I think it was worth it though! :)
