When it comes to Homecoming there is more than just the high school dance variety. Homecoming on college campuses focus more closely on the football game as well as a variety of other events. All of these events can be commemorated with photos and made more complete with a photo booth. Whether it is a booth at the game, the bonfire or the dance itself, there are lots of props and ideas to consider.
The Game Booth
There are all sorts of backdrops you can play with if you do a photo booth pre-game. Make sure you pull out pom poms and other decorations that go with the game idea. If you have access to a cardboard cutout of some of the players it can add to the posing in the booth itself. You might even want a bit of face paint or a helmet to really make the look complete.
The Bonfire Booth
Often the night before the big game there is a bonfire. Fire backdrops can be lots of fun for students. You can have a variety of props they can act like they are throwing on the fire. This should include the enemy jerseys, maybe a stuffed animal of their mascot; really anything that would be fun to pretend to burn.
When it comes to the Homecoming dance consider the location of the photo booth. While you don’t want it far from the dance floor itself, it can be fun to have separate music for vamping in the photo booth. Consider letting those who are taking the photos choose their own “theme” song. This can really ramp up the creativity when it comes to poses.
Consider Girl Sports Too
Despite the fact that homecoming usually focuses on football, don’t be sexist. There are often other games going on like volleyball, swimming or field hockey. Consider adding some props that associate with these games as well. It will be more inclusive and can allow for more interaction between different types of people.
No matter what type of photo booth you put together for homecoming, you are sure to get photos that will last a lifetime. Don’t forget to encourage social media sharing complete with hashtags. You might be surprised at how quickly you will be trending on Instagram and Twitter.
