HALLOWEEN POST: Glowforge costume alert!


#1

From Facebook (+ one bonus pic!) - the incredible @shell does it again:

Forget the eye of newt and toe of frog. The secret ingredient to this year’s costume contest winner is - without a doubt - laser beams.

If you’re after an “I can’t believe you made that”-caliber costume, lasers and Halloween go together like trick or treating and candy. Shell, who’s a project designer at Glowforge, put her laser-chops to the test to craft this scary good Dr. Jillian Holtzmann getup from the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot.
An artsy-type who’s occasionally envious of her laser engineer coworkers, Shell built a costume with laser-made details that would fool even the brainiest scientist.

Her ghost-busting goggles are adorned with custom-made acrylic lenses for extra spectre detection. The Holtzmann name tag was engraved on piece of leather, and the necklace was cut from mirrored acrylic. Topping off the hair-raising ensemble, the iconic Ghostbusters logo was cut and engraved from leather and finished with acrylic paint and leather dye.

Awesome!!!

I would love to get a closeup look at those things, especially the necklace!


#6

Nice, especially because the result is Really Cool Costume, not Really Laser-Cut Costume.


#7

Yes! that’s pretty cool

HA! My daughter (20 months old) was also Holtzmann for Halloween. If only I had a laser to do these finishing pieces… :wink: I’ll post a few pictures once I get them uploaded.
