Comic Book Mirrors
The idea of using a magazine cover as a mirror is an old one. Why not a comic book-themed mirror for us geeks?
This would be a large mirror (bathroom or dresser mirror, or a tall full-body mirror), because most comics feature the entire figure within the cover frame. The mirror would be adorned with stickers or decals featuring your favorite superhero’s logo, book title, publishing mast, bar code — all the bells and whistles.
In my opinion this mirror would be a great confidence booster. Think of it: if you are seeing yourself labelled as Superman or Wonder Woman everyday, you might subconsciously subscribe to the notion that you are indeed super*.
This would be a great DIY project. One thing to be wary of: if you are tackling the bathroom mirror, you are going to need some decals fit for a car because of the steam and moisture. Go to an auto detailing place because those decals are designed to withstand the elements (warning: you’ll need a paint stripping heat gun to remove the decals).
If anyone has any tips in regards to decals or large sticker printing (especially a website that specializes in them), please leave a comment and I’ll update this post.
UPDATE: A local car graphics company has informed me that vinyl decals will indeed do the trick. They are waterproof and UV resistant and all that jazz.
