Planning a DIY photo booth? Some black, propped-up foam core board can turn a regular photo booth into a life-size comic strip. I may have snagged this from a fifth birthday party, but who better to teach us the ways of geek Jedi than kids? They know how to party, okay? Just cut out a rectangle large enough for a couple of people, prop up the foam core board with some stands, and you're ready to add the theme.
If you're feeling really ambitious, rent or buy a Stormtrooper or Darth Vader costume and get some sweet shots like this. Plus, this idea can be duplicated for tons of themes: superheroes, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Star Trek… you name it.
