This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Gigi Photo Booth:
A new, more modern photo booth from the Sims 3 Showtime expansion pack. It also comes with updated picture frames that weren't converted from Sims 3. I included a picture of the Sims 2 photo booth and frames for those of you like me who forget about the photo booth and never use it -- I really like how different these are from each other.

Catalog Description:
Gigi was an early actress so well-liked by cameras and photographers that her name became virtually synonymous with pictures. Now there is a photo booth honoring her memory. Can it help make your Sim famous as well? It couldn't hurt!

Catalog Sort:
General/Misc. $1,500

The photo booth is available on residential lots too if you just want to buy a booth to snap a few family pictures to decorate with.

Recoloring:
There's two designable/recolorable subsets: the curtain and the outside panels. The interior and the signs can't be recolored, sorry! But if you do want to recolor what you can here's the PSD template I made.




Issues:
The photo booth clips through the ceiling during the woohoo animation. It also looks black in the video, especially on the smallest setting you see here, but since it took over an hour to upload a 30 second clip I'm not going to bother to re-do it with better lighting -- it does not look dark like that in game -- honest.

The half naked sim in the clip (freaking out over the noisy piano that no one is playing) is wearing fanseelamb's tracksuit.

Picture Frames:
The picture frames I used here are available at Leefish.nl as a default replacement for the Maxis photo booth too if anyone is interested. They'll work on your existing photos, you just need to use the hand tool to pick them up and place them again in order for the mesh to update.

Terms of Use:
You're welcome to use this however you'd like. This is also one of those objects that could have been re-created in a variety of ways so if anyone wants to re-do this mesh in a different way feel free. Let me know and I'll even send you the original files if you want them.

Polygon Counts:
Photo Booth:
Faces: 2271
Vertices: 2433

Wall Frame:
Faces: 228
Vertices: 302

Table Frame:
Faces: 182
Vertices: 272

I love the frame of pictures taken with this new booth. Any chance a default replacement that adds this frame to pictures taken with the NL-photo booth as well? =)

Regardless, really nice. Thank you!

Thanks for the comments all, so glad you'll get some use out of this.

@EternalBoredom
Oh, no! I love the Nightlife photo booth because it looks just like the ones from the arcades when I was growing up -- tatty curtain and all. But other than that I have to agree that this one is a much nicer version.

@lazzybum
I'm so glad you like the frames -- I re-did them so many times it's not even funny.

Yes, absolutely! You can get defaults for the Maxis photo booth at Leefish.nl. It's a great site with a friendly community (waves @Karen ) that you're welcome to join if you want but you don't have to. Guests can download without registering, there's lots of nice stuff there for TS2 & 3.

Thank you so much! I use the photo booth all the time, so another version of it is great; this one will blend nicely into some places that the Nightlife one doesn't.

Yes! This is SO much better than the Maxis photo booth that came with NL. Now that this looks stylin' and not plain, I will use this! And LMAO at the video. I like how, at the end, this random girl runs up to the booth. Ha, ha! Uhhh...do you -have- to watch, lady? xD Rofl!

This is AMAZING!!!!! Thanks Honeywell! It's sooo chic and modern, much better than the maxis one!
Just to clarify: this photobooth is not a DR, right? It will stand alone with the other one?
Thanks again!

That's right, it's not a default replacement. It's a completely new object that stands alone so if you download you'll have both photo booths.

And thanks everyone for the nice comments!

Now this is a handsome photo booth. Thank you very much for sharing! No longer will the photo booth be hidden away in a corner in my more upscale community lots.

Thank you for sharing great job.

Hi Simonut. I'm sorry you couldn't find it but I know it exists because I made it. Here is the direct link again to the default replacement frames I did for the Maxis photo booth:

Back again "Honeywell" The Booth isues is just fine in my game when they woohoo (lol ) it is not clip throught the ceiling I guess it depend on how one lot is build. And just as you said it is not dark in the game. I tested this in a two story lot no problem all is perfect. If this Booth ever become a Default I will be one of the first to get it.
