Last night, I had the pleasure of visiting the Cue Camera Photo Studio* in Southampton and had an absolute ball. Now, I'm going to be honest, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect because when I heard 'photobooth', I automatically presumed small props and a selection of four photos (you know the ones) however, Cue Camera is a mini Photo Studio, in the middle of Guildhall. You can have your photos taken by a professional photographer, in a variety of Christmas themed fancy dress outfits! Amazing. It's honestly much more fun than you imagine, and it completely exceeded my expectations.
You can't miss it, because it's shiny and gold on the outside and right next to the Christmas Tree in Guildhall Square however, it's super neat and packed inside, with a 'blue screen', changing area, sofa/lounge and heaps of outfits!
We arrived at the studio and sat down on the sofas to explore the huge catalogue of fancy dress options to pick from. I went for an elf, because what better way to feel festive! I love the candy cane stripes. They have a selection of 'one size fits all' and a range of womens/mens sizes too. I popped all my clothes into a santa sack, hung it up and then I was good to go!
They played christmas tunes and we giggled about how cheesy we all felt, but in a good way! I laughed and laughed and posed like I'd be drinking several vodkas (I hadn't, but I felt like it!). The experience truly was great fun.
The studio officially opened today, and will run through to New Year's Eve. They'll be open every day 10am - 10pm, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Starting from just £15, you can even bring your pets! It's the perfect stop if you're on a night out with your friends, or an after-work drink with your colleagues.
Here's some of the photos!
Cheers Cue Camera, I can't wait to do this again! Check out the website HERE and be sure to visit the studio for festival fun this December. It'll certainly put you in the the Christmas spirit!
