Sticker Me Beautiful


Friday, February 06, 2009

Kurt lands in Tokyo's Shibuya -- glitzy and bustling, it makes Times Square look quaint, and it’s the epicenter of teen culture. Kurt meets up with blogger Lisa Katayama, who takes Kurt to a girl haven: the sticker picture booth. Striking poses against glittery pink and purple backdrops just might be Japan's secret to happiness.

Wow... I'm sorry but that old guy doing purikura is just weird.... and slightly creepy. But purikura are SO much fun.

SoCal has these machines all over the place. They actually stick SLRs and softboxes into these machines. Always a good time!

I remember those photo booths in the U.S.A. Except this is like PHOTO SHOP in a booth plus scrapbooking in a box. Love the whole concept. It is making memories with friends.
