I’ve always wanted to make some custom cut and engraved Mickey ears since I have a pass. When I went the other day, they had the holiday ones on sale for $8 (usually about $20) so I bought 4 pairs to experiment with since it already came with correct positioning, LEDs, batteries, and a headband.
Ultimately, I’ll be custom-cutting these on my own acrylic, but since I was going to chuck these anyway, I thought I’d give it a test run since I knew they would fit for sure into the custom slots.
The first one I did was the vampire toy from Nightmare Before Christmas and it seemed to have shifted a bit in the engrave and overall position.
The second, Jack Skellington, one went wildly awry because it looked like the image had melted, but I’m assuming that his has to do with it being a different kind of plastic.
Despite it not looking the way I wanted, I still think it’s a success because I was able to troubleshoot and see how these things came apart
