Photo Studio

Come to the photo booth and pose with your friends or show off your best cosplay outfits!

Chibi Photo

The photo booth will be set up for solo or group shots, no need to bring your own camera. A photographer will be on site to take and print your pictures for you! For an additional fee, you may choose to have your prints turned into veritable 'purikura' keepsakes of your fun times at Otakuthon.

PURI-KURA ("Print Club" in Japanese) is very popular in Japan and is making its way into the North American market. Cute borders and add-on 'stickies' or 'stamps' make each photo unique!

For those of you who are cosplay-crazy and either don't have a camera or can't be bothered to take pictures of every cool costume you see during the con, we will also be offering an affordable CD collection of all the photos shot in the booth throughout the two days of the con.
