See your face in 3D
What better gift for your grandmother’s mantelpiece than a frosted 3D rendering of your face inside a chunk of glass? Head to the Precise kiosk in Mall of the Emirates to pick up exactly such an item, where laser engraved 2D and 3D portraits, trophies and awards made of ‘high-quality optical crystal’ are its business.
From Dhs325 for a 5x5x8cm portrait. Mall of the Emirates, Al Barsha (055 497 4310).
Dress up for a historical portrait
With Global Village set to remain open this year until Saturday April 12, take advantage of the opportunity to visit Historyland Studios in the Germany, UK and France pavilions. Here, prospective posers can don ’20s attire, cowboy gear or even British Tudor-themed outfits from centuries past for a spectacularly kitsch photoshoot. If you won’t have time before then, fear not – Historyland also has a branch in Wafi Mall, and offers special events packages.
From Dhs220 for one person (small framed picture) to Dhs600 for ten people (medium framed picture). Various locations, www.historylandstudios.com (056 951 1889).
