Ooh, that looks better than the attempts I'd made... It gave me an idea too! A couple days ago, I did a project that involved extensive use of the curve bend tool, so I just checked to see if it could work for this situation. I think it turned out quite nicely... there was a little bit of 'empty space' that needed to be cloned in, but it was very minor. What do you think?

Oh, yeah, G'MIC. I have it installed, but it needs to be updated and I've never used it... is it really all that good?

@IndoMK:

Very nicely blended, could you give us a link for the curve tutorial?

And G'MIC is great for experimenting with hundreds of effects, but I personally don't like those.
What I like about G'MIC is only one thing: Anisotropic Smoothing, wich just pwns. It's basically removing all the noise in your image, giving it a great look.

I didn't delete it, I forgot to save it. :|

All I did was take the two halves and rotate them until the covered the white parts (place a vertical guide at 50% for perfection), then erase/smudge/blend until it looks nice n purty. :3

Thanks. :) I found some pixel shifts, evidently from the curving. But they were only visible at very zoomed in, and easily fixable with the clone tool. Oh, and I didn't use a tutorial or anything for the curve bend, I just experimented...
