…your mother probably doesn’t do purikura anyway, but it sounded good. So what’s purikura? Wikipedia says it better than I do:
In Japan, purikura (プリクラ) refers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. The name is a shortened form of the registered trademark Purinto Kurabu (プリント倶楽部). The term derives from the English print club. Jointly developed by Atlus and Sega, the first purikura machines were sold in July 1995.

Basically, you’re supposed to make pretty pictures of yourself and your giggling squad of girlfriends with “skin beauty” filters applied, little roses, sparkles and bubble stamps applied, and so on. …I believe there is more potential to the medium.
Dainty! I will be exploring it to the fullest in the months and years to come.
Incidentally I currently use the Deco Puri android app for my purikura travesties.
