Alpharetta: You, Only Smaller
A slightly surreal but oh-so-satisfying experience, the Alpharetta MiniMe Factory is one of only a few places in the country where you can have a 3-D ceramic replica made of yourself in 3- to 9-inch versions. Housed in a generic strip mall, there is little indication from the outside of the strange delights that await inside the MiniMe Factory. Super personable owner Reza Gian Nourali will direct you to the 3-D/360 photo room where image capturing technology and 100 cameras and scanners will record you from every angle. Pick your favorite version of you (or your pet or up to 4 people) on the video screen and then wait 3 weeks for your likeness to arrive in the mail. Guaranteed, you will be unable to resist staring at your tiny self and contemplating who and what you can have rendered in miniature next.
