It might be too late to personalize your chocolates for Valentine’s Day this year, but for next year, how about gifting 3-D chocolates of your face? Leave it up to the Japanese to take this sweet Valentine’s Day tradition and turn it a bit too personal! For just 6000 yen (about $68), 15 winners joined a 2-day workshop in Shibuya to make chocolate replicas of their faces using 3-D scanners, printers, and personalized silicon molds.
I’m not narcissistic enough to want my own facial mold, but I can see how this process would be great for making custom favors or decor. Personally, I find the idea of opening a box of chocolates to find my friend staring up at me a bit frightening. And if you actually do eat the chocolate, does that mean that you really like or hate your friend?
Wishing you all a lovely Valentine’s Day :)
