My wife and I picked up a costume for our little one this Halloween. She wanted to be Ladybug from Miraculous, Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir, and we got the smallest one we could find… but it was still too big. And to top it off, the one part that did fit, the mask, our daughter had an allergic reaction to the fabric used.
Glowforge to the rescue! A bit of work in Illustrator, a bit of leather, some laser-ized photons, some sand paper, dye and sealer later, and we have a mask scaled to fit a bit better. Best of all, it looks nicer and is a lot more durable for after-Halloween costume fun!
The rest of the costume was re-made using red pajamas and another fun machine, a vinyl cutter, since iron-on vinyl is a big no-no for lasers.
