Mirror Distortion Types

 

 

Funhouse mirrors come in a variety of distortions. Below is an explanation of what the different types of funhouse mirrors do. Please keep in mind that a funhouse mirror shows a different shape every time, so what you see also depends on your own imagination and the way you stand in front of the mirror, close or far away. The type of distortion a person sees is based largely on his or her line of sight as well. For a better understanding of how funhouse mirrors work, please visit our “How Funhouse Mirrors Work Blog”.
