“You know what you look like in a picture, but the day you see your ‘Moimee’ you go ‘Wow, I look like that’?”
New Pop-Up Shop Le Moimee Store in Paris specializes as well as prides itself in being the first store to have mastered 3D Portraits.
3D Portraits allows a person to print a figurine that is about 1/12 of their size. They can be in any pose with any sorts of accessories, even Megaphones!
Located in the trendy Marais District of Paris, Moimee is certainly pioneering a practice that is assumed to be a huge hit in the coming months/years!
In case you’re wondering about the 3D printing process they use, here’s a brief synopsis: First, you choose whether you’d like your “Mini-Me” cast in Wax or the use of Double Tempering. Next, you get all dressed up (or dressed down) and enter a room with 50 cameras, make a pose, and get your picture(s) taken! After this, those 50 photos are processed and a designer will look over the draft of them to make sure they are perfect. Then, the images are printed layer by layer, a process that takes about 3 hours. Finally, a few weeks after the shooting, you’re all set to take yourself home!
This is undeniably going to make it big Worldwide. If you’d like to be one of the first to try it out, head over to 14 Rue Du Temple 75004 Paris. Hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-8pm, and on Wednesdays they are open until 9pm.
