How to Make a Case for the LomoKino

In the end, I couldn't wait to buy the Lomokino Mubi Edition. Then, I thought that I didn't have a case to protect it and I'm very careful with it. And this is white! The solution was to make my own case and this is what I'm going to show you in this lomo-trick.

This is my Lomokino MUBI, it’s beautiful. But I want it to continue being beautiful, so I need to protect it!

Materials needed:

  • We need colored foam; it’s a cheap material, durable, and comes in lots of colors.
  • A ruler
  • Pen or pencil
  • A zipper
  • Needle and thread

Steps to follow:

First, what we have to do is to take measurements of the camera and draw them in the foam. Then, we’ll cut them. I used 4 pieces: two for the sides, one for the front, and one for the base, and one more for the top.

Then we will sew them (look the photos, you’ll understand it better).

We should join the main piece (biggest) to a side piece like this:

When we sew it, we’ll get something like this:

Now, we have to check if the camera fits in the case, and cut it if it’s bigger. We have to check the size of the front piece (I had to make a new piece) and if all the pieces are okay, we sew them. This is the result:

Now we only have to put the zipper so we can close the case. It’s so easy than it seems.

We’ve finished and this is the result:

Come on, make your own LomoKino case!

Lomo on!
