This week I wanted to show my lovely coffee readers some of the photobooth props I've been working on. Normally I wouldn't show much of my wedding plans on here....it mostly needs to be a surprise, after all. (Well, how can it be a surprise with Pinterest around??). Anyway, since mustaches at photobooths are pretty common, I thought I would show what we're doing for ours!
My lovely friend Veronica (from Passion, Pink and Pearls) is letting me use some of the stuff from her photobooth from her wedding in June. Some of her props were made of paper, and had gotten a little crumpled up. Since her wedding was just a little over six months ago, and I still have almost 5 until mine, I needed to get these done, but I wanted them to stay in good condition between now and then.
I cut some foam board out and glued my mustaches to that with hot glue, so as long as they don't get tossed around too much, they should make it until May.
This is how I made them:
I also am quite happy with the result from using colored pencil on the mustaches. The shading makes them a bit more realistic, and also more unique from each other.
The depth added from the shading will also help them show up on camera, rather than blend in to the face and surroundings.
What props are you making/did you make for your photobooth?
