If you've always wanted a smaller replica of yourself, but are hesitant to commit to the cost and stress of parenthood, there is now an alternative. If you're in Tokyo, you can sit for a 3-D portrait.
Omote 3D Shashin Kan is a pop-up portrait studio that uses a handheld scanner to create a three-dimensional model of your entire body. A 3-D printer then makes a small, intricately detailed plastic figurine. The final, full-color models look exactly like the larger you, down to the wrinkles on the clothes and part in the hair.
The project is part of a photography exhibition at the Eye of Gyre gallery in Tokyo's Harajuku neighborhood, and will only be open from November 24 to January 14. The photo sessions are by reservation only, and you have to book your appointment through the project's website.
