TARDIS Photo Booth

No, TARDIS is not a name-calling insult, it's the phone booth from the television series Doctor Who and somebody has decided to take the classic photo booth and merge it with the popular show's phono booth - TARDIS.

The blue behemoth was made specifically for Steve Long's daughter's wedding and wouldn't you guess - it was a hit!

DIY Photo Booth Props

Probably the best part about photo booths are the props and there's no better way to get elbow deep in a photo booth project than by sitting down to make some DIY Photo Booth Props. If you're not really crafty, don't worry, homemade photo booth props are actually pretty easy to make and don't take too much time. So, gather your things and let's get down to some good old photo booth prop fun.

If you're going to make your own photo booth props, you're going to need a few things. If you don't have these items, you can pick them up at practically any arts and crafts store. Here's what you'll need:
  • Stiffened felt or thick cardstock (whichever you prefer)
  • 12' bamboo sticks or wooden dowel rods
  • Hot glue gun with glue
  • Scissors
Now that you've gathered everything, you're ready to go. You can start to cut shapes out of your felt or cardstock and if you need a guide or template, search online for popular photo booth props to get an idea for what other people are using. You can even find some print out templates if you need.

Once you've cut out your props, simply fire up the glue gun (but be careful, they get really hot) and put a dab on the back of the prop and stick the dowel rod right into the glue. After about a minute or so, you'll have your very own DIY Photo Booth Prop.

Good Luck!

Photo Booth Photobomb

If you're not familiar with photobombing, check out This Is Photobomb! A fantastically hilarious website dedicated to the art of jumping into people's photos at the last second and making a face or a gesture and in a sense, ruining (or enhancing) that photo.

This photobomb happened to occur in a popular photo booth and was probably a humorous surprise for the kissing couple!

Photo Booth For A Prom

Photo booths aren't just for malls anymore, they can be used for almost anything. From weddings to graduation parties, to corporate events and even proms. I once heard of a photo booth rental being used for a birthday party for a dog, go figure!

Here's one story of how a photo booth can be used for a prom

Photo Booth Olympics

Ok, so the title might be a little deceiving. This post is not, in fact, a photo booth competition, though that would be pretty cool. Instead it's some cool pics from an Olympics-themed photo booth at a theme party thrown by blogger, ChrisTOPHO.

As you know, we love photo booths and especially DIY Photo Booth Props and we've loved watching the 2012 London Olympics so far, so what could be better than a perfect marriage of the two?

Be sure to check out the rest of the photos! Photos via Letopho!
