Mustache and Lip Photo Props are all the rage right now! They are a fun way to get some creative shots of your friends and family members. They would also be a fun activity for your guests at a birthday party, shower or wedding. I had been wanting to get some pictures of my kids with these fun props ever since I had so much fun posing with them at a couple of different Blog Conferences this summer.
The first photo was taken in the Kodak Suite at EVO and include me, Shelley, Jen, and Kim. The second photo was from the Utah Bloggers Summit. The photo booth was set up and provided by a cute little company called ‘Stache In a Box. Pictured are Megan, Mandi and I.
I was going to make some out of paper but then thought it would be fun to be able to send your guests home with them as a delicious party favor! So I found some molds to actually make Mustache and Lip Suckers.
I found my molds on Amazon and have provided you with the links to the ones that I actually purchased. I bought the large lips mold and didn’t realize how LARGE they actually were. If I were to buy them again I would go for the small lips mold. In fact…I think I may actually go back and order it.
I simply filled the molds with melted chocolate onto the sucker sticks for the Mustaches and then let them harden in the freezer.
For the lips I used the last little bit of my red Candy Melts that I had used for these Apple Pops and some leftover pink Candy Melts from Valentine’s Day.
See how big those lips are?…haha! My kids had a great time helping me with this photo shoot. And as a little bonus they got to eat their props when we had finished! At least my models will work for little compensation…or I would be broke! Oh…and make sure if it is hot outside that you work fast. Just after this last picture was taken, my oldest girl pulled her lips away from her face and it was smeared with melted “lipstick”. We had a good laugh about that!
