Halo problems with fancy editing

I've seen people do the black&white bg with coloured objects, I can never get it right.

Looking at this picture you can see the leg and the shoulders are not done properly and I used the magic wand, eraser, magnetic wand in PS5 but no matter what I do I can never get a clean cut.

Any tips to do this better or some way to blur out these imperfections?

This is my kids impression of "Home Alone" and she's barely 2.. LOL

Do you notice usually this kind of photo, they present only one colour.
The most famous example is a red subject with all b&w front- and back-ground.

If using CS5, click Image>Hue/Saturation
You will see there is a "Master", change it to the colours you don't want and the saturation to zero.

This is one of the way.

It would be better if you try to remove distracting backgrounds, like the one corner edge growing on the top of the head, and try to shoot from a lower angle. also you can try this sharpening technique. Open the file in Photoshop. Press Control-J to copy your image
into a new layer. Go to the "Filter" menu and select "Sharpen." From there
select "Unsharp Mask" and enter 18 for Amount, 40 for Radius and 0 for
Threshold. Go back into the "Filter" menu. Again, go to "Sharpen" and click on
"Unsharp Mask." Enter 150 for Amount, 0.3 for Radius and 0 for Threshold.
Go into the "Edit" menu and select "Fade Unsharp Mask" or press Shift-
Control-F. Enter an opacity of 100 percent and select "Darken," then press
"OK." Go to the "Filter" menu and select "Sharpen." Click on "Unsharp Mask."
Enter 150 for the Amount, 0.3 for the Radius and 0 for the Threshold. Go to
the "Edit" menu and select "Fade Unsharp Mask" or press Shift-Control-F.
Enter 50 percent for opacity and select Lighten, then press "OK." Click on the
"Layer" menu and select "Merge Visible" or press Shift-Control-E and save the
image. just my 2 cents.
