Once you arrive at the store, you can store your things and look through the line up of traditional armored suits and pieces. The pieces will be explained to you so that you can pick your favorite! Next you’ll select the suit you like, and a professional tailor will get you fitted for your photo shoot. An array of special cameras will be available so you can take multiple shots from any angle, in any style! The cameras available include Instax Polaroid style and DSLR high-end cameras, plus the staff can also help you take shots with your smartphone.
