Well with a few hours and a few bucks you can make one.
Now I just have a standup of my brother but imagine all the possibilities. Who will be the first to make a cardboard stand up all the furniture in their friends living room. Take a picture of the living room as is. Remove all furniture. Install cardboard stand ups in their respective places!
There are really two, well maybe three approaches to making a cardboard stand up.
First you can have someone make one for you.
Prices for a 6'4 figure are about $165.00 not including shipping.
A cheaper approach calls for taking the photo and breaking up into desktop printer sized parts.
This would only cost the ink and paper. Ultra cheap if you have a decent printer and can deal with some lines.
I wanted something a little more.
I had a life size photo of my brother printed at Kinkos and I mounted it to the cardboard myself. Cost about 125.00
Keep in mind they charge by the square foot. Smaller person, smaller print cost. Cost to print 6'4 brother came to $110.00 with 10% student discount. About 15.00 for foamcore + gluesticks.
Step 1: Getting your image.
Get your hands on the largest megapixel camera you can.
The larger the megapixel the better the printed image will be.
I recommend at least a 7 megapixel camera. They are pretty common now. You can rent a 12 megapixel camera at some camera rental stores.
The next step involves enlarging the photo, a smaller megapixel will give you pixelation and a higher megapixel won't be affected as much.
Picture below is what we want to avoid. This would be a 4 megapixel photo blown up to life size.
