Hollywood Photobooth Launches on The App Store

The V&A will bring the glamour of the Hollywood Costume exhibition to app users this autumn with Hollywood Photobooth, a new camera overlay app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Hollywood Photobooth will allow anyone to instantly ‘wear’ the costumes as immortalised by some of the most iconic film characters from a century of Hollywood filmmaking.
This light hearted and playful app features 16 specially-photographed costumes ranging from Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp suit, to Viola de Lesseps stunning dress, headdress and jewellery in Shakespeare in Love worn by Gywneth Paltrow. Users can also adorn their costume with essential accessories: from the Blues Brothers’ cool ensemble with the all-important sunglasses and hat to the combat armour of Gladiator’s Maximus worn by Russell Crowe. Right up-to-the-minute, the app also includes costumes from the latest movie releases such as the dress worn by Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina.
Users can simply select a costume in the app, align the costume on a friend or front facing on themselves, snap the photograph and experience the photobooth transformation process in an instant. Photos taken by Hollywood Photobooth can be shared via email, Facebook and Twitter.
• Key Features include:
• 16 legendary costumes each for leading ladies and gentlemen
• Detailed information about each costume including costume
designer, film, date and studio
• Instant transformation process with no internet connection
needed
• Results can be saved to your photo library

Hollywood Photobooth has been created in partnership with Ribui, a leading digital publisher specialising in the creation of augmented reality and 3D apps and interactive books for smartphones and tablets.
