DIY Project #28: Make a Halloween Mirror with Eyes

Along with our La Sardina DIY camera we’d like to present several DIY projects to inspire you. This project is a fantastic tutorial on how to make a Halloween mirror with creepy eyes by Linda. Have fun!

For those of you who love to decorate your house with Halloween stuff, this is the mirror for you! If you want to know how to do it, read the full tutorial on our very new DIY project page.

But what has this to do with the competitions section? Well, we’d like to try something new – complete the steps, then take one of your beloved analogue cameras (or the new La Sardina DIY camera), document the results and submit the photos once they are developed here. Please don’t upload any digital photos, don’t submit anything unrelated to this project (as much as we’d like to see your reflection in a mirror, this is not the place) and watch out, the limit is two photos.

This is for fun and we’d like to present more projects like this in the future. See them all under diy.lomography.com. Let us know in the comments what you think of this and how you like this very project. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
