Here's how to make your own:
1. Create a backdrop. I borrowed one of my sister's photography backgrounds, although a similar effect can be achieved with a fun piece of fabric.
2. Download Sparkbooth at www.sparkbooth.com for about $60. This is the software you will need to make your photo-booth self-serve. It gives your guests instructions to take and print pictures with just a few steps.
3. Get your equipment. I didn't want to buy anything new so I just used my laptop with a built-in camera and the color printer I already had. Lucky for me everything worked out fine but if you don't want to risk your own stuff you can also invest in a webcam and photo printer. In addition you will need some photo paper - I used 4x6 - and depending on the number of guests an extra ink cartridge or two.
The end result:
