Just take a stroll down Haji lane and you’ll be surprised with the amount of self-photo studios available (not that I’m complaining). From elevator theme and fisheye lens to Taylor Swift-inspired photostrips, the choices are endless!
If you have no plans of heading to Korea — the land of photobooths — why not head somewhere closer to home like Bangkok?
Located in Lido Siam Square, Sculpture Flagship offers multiple photo automats with unique concepts. Hear this out — have you heard (or visited) a cake theme photobooth with an actual cake that you can enter?
Okay, it may not be a real cake (think plaster cakes instead).
The Birthday Cake (S$7.20, 190 baht) photobooth is hard to miss as it’s an enormous (almost life-size) cake sculpture decorated with ribbons of icing and crimson cherries.
Come to think of it, the quirky exterior makes for a great photo spot as well.
Choose from their selections of templates that make it seem like you’re in the cake itself (so there’ll be more than one snack in the photo *wink*).
Here’s the icing on the cake: the photobooth is entirely enclosed so you don’t have to worry about people walking past if you’re shy!
Otherwise, head to the ATM Sticky Machine (S$7.20, 190 baht) if you want photo strips that look like money (except its value won’t be affected by the GST hike).
Don on your best denim outfit for the Denim on Denim booth for just S$6.10 (160.50 baht). If you prefer to strike a more comfortable pose, you can take a seat on a literal denim bench.
They do have some conventional booths like the Telephoto Booth (S$6.10, 160.50 baht) or The Classic ($7.20, 190 baht). Nevertheless, they still look as stylish and sleek as the other wackier photobooths — you can never go wrong with them.
Top up an additional S$1.90 (50 baht) at The Classic for a unique keepsake, a heart keychain, and you’ll be able to literally carry your loved ones around.
Did I mention that they also have a separate Studio Room filled with different backdrops? You’ll get to transport yourself to a flower garden or even an elegant manor that reminds me of the Bridgerton house.
At the studio room, you’ll get to choose the S$26.10 (690 baht) package for one to two people which includes all digital files, four printed photos, and one sculpture ID card. Do prepare your poses beforehand as you only have fifteen minutes to take all the shots you want!
Otherwise, opt for the S$33.70 (890 baht) package for three to four people that includes all digital files, eight printed photos, and two sculpture ID cards. This place is literal heaven for people who love taking photos.
If you’re lucky, you might catch the occasional collaboration frames with K-pop artists like Red Velvet and SHINee. Currently, they offer NCT127 themed frames (S$7.20, 190 baht) till 31 March 2024 at M floor.
Don’t miss out on this chance to snap a picture with your bias!
Still itching to get your hands on more photo strips? Sculpture Girlfriends is located in Siam Square Soi 5, just a stone throw away from the Sculpture Flagship.
Hang out with your girlfriends and get the Regular Pass for (S$22.30, 590 baht) to visit all four booths or the Royale Pass (S$37.40, 990 baht) to visit the booths twice.
Best of all, they have more than ten outlets around Bangkok. The photoautomat’s designs in each location may differ but you can expect them to be equally interesting.
Are you ready to have your cake and eat it too?
