Done! A friend* had this Dita von Teese picture printed on some professional heavy duty plastic mesh stuff for us and it took us roughly three month to get her up there.
The picture itself is cropped out of some other (not even high resolution) Dita picture, I did that just for fun while playing around with the Rasterbator (a software to create huge, rasterized images from any picture) and we ended up taking the very first version for the final print.
First we had to figure out how to best attach this beauty to our kitchen wall: we finally decided to build a wooden frame (3m by 1.5m!!) with three vertical bars, cover this frame with 8mm chipboard (that’s not as thick as it sounds by far!) and paint it white. Arrange the picture. Staple gun. Attach to wall. Done.
Well, almost. It was quite an effort to get everything crinkle-free but it worked out very nicely. Just look at the sheer size, I left the door and the table so you get an idea of the scales.
Now there she is, giant size Dita on our kitchen wall (here is a high-resolution version of the picture above) 😉
* Update: ‘a friend’ complained about not being mentioned personally. So here goes the privacy: Specials thanks go to Felizitas ‘Fee’ for the professional print! Fee: and now I want your comment below 😉
