Where to take a 3D selfie in Toronto

How can you up your selfie game in Toronto? Not with a selfie-stick because those aren't welcome (and there should really be a bylaw against them) at numerous cultural institutions and events including NXNE, the Rogers Centre and likely, the AGO.

But, one Toronto 3D printing studio is taking social media-based self-portraiture to the next level with a product it calls the Selftrait. Yes, it's a 3D selfie, or more accurately, a three dimensional figurine in your likeness.

Prices at Sculptraits' Davenport Road studio start at $120 for a pocket-sized, five-inch figurine and the process is simple. After getting scanned by 137 DSLR cameras, your Selftrait will arrive in around a week so you can quickly start taking epic selfies, just like American photographer Chris Buck. Other companies offering this service include MY3D Agency in Liberty Village.

Toronto is home to numerous 3D printing studios and anyone with a Toronto Public Library card can access a 3D printer for free at the Fort York and Scarborough Civic Centre Branches as well as at the Toronto Reference Library.
