i was thinking if i'm really trying to put a twist on it, i could just make it a box that you can stand on top of. ten by ten perhaps. making the top pannel out of wood with an inlaid sheet of plaxiglass. taking sand paper and fogging the plexi-glass and having the mirror project the image upwards. ...
