    My date for a party wanted to be "Red Riding Hood". I had two choices:
    1. Woodsman
    2. Wolf
    A Woodsman in the SF Bay Area would have just looked like a Hipster. But I didn't want to wear a mast or makeup for a wolf.

    I was going to just buy a costume, but decided to get creative.

    First I designed some claws in Tinkercad. I hollowed out the ends so the tips of my fingers would fit inside:

    I printed a few different sizes, cut some holes into old work gloves, and got this:

    Next I printed wolf ears. At first I was going to attach them to a headband, but the first try looked like cat ears. So I took a hat / fedora and printed some ears, attached neodymium magnets, and had a perfect solution:

    Then I decided to use "moldable plastic" to take imprints of my teeth, then attached 3D printed teeth to them:

    After that, I wrapped the ears and gloves in faux fur from the fabric store:

    The full costume:

    I was sooo scary ;)

    Canon were, BUT 3D is better..
    Good choice to be the Party Wolf, it has much more street cred, and the use of the 3D printer to create the bits you needed was inspiring, I can see it now, 3D Wolf Prowls the Bay area...:hide
    I always knew Rob could be a bit of an Auld Wolf..:ya :lol:

    They are already prowling. Is Nifty playing pranks with his 3D printer? Zooming in to street level, the wolves seem to leave their presents around a lot of food and beverage businesses. Who's hungry?

    Suddenly, Cleveland's old nickname of the armpit of the US does not seem so bad.
