Mystery in the Photo Booth

Props: 1 magnifying glass, 1 Nancy Drew mystery, 1 sheet of corrugated paper, 1 pair of sunglasses, 2 wigs. It was difficult getting this batch at the Warhol Museum on Sunday with children running around. I’m sure they wondered why two adults were taping fake Christmas brick inside the photo  booth and why we were laughing so hard as we took turns jumping in and out of it to switch frames. And  they were terrified when Jeff came out from the last shot ; the one bowl-cropped wig makes him look eerily like Norman Bates dressed as Mother.

Howdy, Lisa. These are really fun pics! Was this a real/film photo booth or a modern-day digital kind? I found your site in doing some research for a post about them I just did at http://rsmithing.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/hey-look-a-photo-booth-this-is-private-right …feel free to say hi in the comments, and you might dig some of the links in the writeup. Cheers.
