@aunt pol:  The cheapest, easiest, most portable “photo booth” I’ve seen, isn’t a photo booth at all. You could hang frames and provide props. People have a blast with that and it’s cheap.

I’ll be making a huge frame out of a sheet of foam insulation like you can buy at a home improvement store. I’ll buy costume props after halloween and make props as well. I realize I can make mustaches, lips, and glasses etc from using those green produce/meat trays you get at the grocery store and kabon sticks. you just have to paint them with paint that’ll stick to plastic.

We hung our fabric backdrop (10 feet by 6 feet) with metal d rings (from Staples) through button holes from the wall using the removable 3M Command hooks.  They held up all night and were removed from the wall with no damage.  If your concerned about it falling off just use 1 hook every foot.  They are the greatest things ever and can be reused.  I use them all the time for holiday decor and they are solid.  Just make sure to clean the wall (where you are gonna place the hook) and let it dry before you install the hooks.

This one lets you see the hanging of the backdrop:

I hope this helps.
