My Halloween “costume”

A friend at work discovered this a few weeks ago, and thanks to a fortunate alignment of contacts and excitement, we were able to pull it off – although I didn’t get to show mine off until the day after Halloween.

It took a lot of effort – thankfully someone else handled most fo the 3D software end of things for me. But I still had to unroll the model in Pepakura and lay out the pages (fifteen 11×17″ pieces of paper), get them printed, and do all the cutting and gluing myself. Just the cutting and gluing took me ten hours, and that’s thanks to having a very good knife and very fast-drying glue. If I hadn’t bought special supplies it would have taken hours longer.

Here’s what it looked like on my work table when finished:

And here’s what it looks like on me (guess which picture is “before” and which is “after”):

It was a rewarding project and I’m glad I did it, but it was a lot more work than I expected.
