A Lomographic Carnival

We attend different parties each month. In December: Christmas parties, in January: New Year’s parties, and on February: the Carnival!

Colors, fun, madness… Who has not ever used a hat, glasses and a mask to make a lomographic photo? We all have done it! Carnival was coming and we had to prepare this year’s fancy dress. If we dress up as a camera, which camera would we choose? The Lubitel! Hands to work!

You’ll need:

  • Black Fabric of 1.5 × 1m for the body camera. It has to be a special fabric for example, like that one which is bright and fluffy, widely used for costumes
  • White Fabric of 1.5 × 0.5m for the details
  • Velcro
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pencil, paper and a ruler to make the pattern

Step 1: We made a Lubitel image in life-size using a ruler and 4 double-paper joined together.

Step 2: We cut out paper templates of letters, lenses, and the details that go on the white cloth. Then we cut the pieces out.

Step 3: We pasted the details on the body of the costume and finally closed it with velcro on the shoulders and side.

We now have our carnival costume!

    TEN AND ONE Residency Week Recap: Yoshitaka Goto (@gocchin)

    First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
