Purikura - Japanese photo editing is fun and cute!

All over Japan, a popular thing for girls (and guys) to do while out and about is to step into a purikura booth and make cool, cute photo stickers like this.  You simply put in your money, take a few shots, then decorate them with frames, stickers, glitter, and words, then print them out. 
Since I haven't gotten to Japan yet, I can recreate these awesome little pics with the loads of great purikura apps on my iPod touch. As you can see, the results are only limited by your imagination.  You can go subtle, like the one below, or crazy out there like the ones above.
If you have an iPhone or iPod touch, simply go to the app store and search "purikura" and you're on your way!  So fun and definitely kawaii!

Here's my brother Ryan and my mom.  I love this one!  The one below is a cool pic I made of my boyfriend dressed up like Iron Man.  I added the frame and stamps to make it look like manga!
