Anyone that has visited Japan will probably have spotted the brightly coloured purikura photo booths usually found in games centres. Purikura or プラクラ takes its name from the english 'print club' and is
a special kind of photo booth where you can take your photo and then add lots of brightly coloured motifs, pictures and text before printing out the images as photos or stickers. It is very popular with girls who love to pose with their friends and swap prints. It is really fun to try and the print-outs make cool souvenirs.
This great video shows how the booths work:
After uploading your photo to the Punykura and Puricute websites (the Punykura site also allows you to take a picture with your webcam) you can add lots of cute pictures and effects as well as text and drawings, just like in a real purikura booth.
This is my attempt. What do you think?
