New York Comic Con 2017

I have a love / hate relationship with New York Comic Con. I think the venue is inadequate for the tons of people that go, it's hard to get to, and there's nothing else really around there to do. But despite those things, I always come away from the convention having had a great time. And that is due mostly to the amazing people I get to meet. So here's some of the awesome cosplay that I saw at New York Comic Con this year!

3D Printed Batarang


A little over a year ago, I made a batarang out of foam. Looking to up my propmaking game, I just recently purchased a 3D printer and decided to 3D print one.

This particular model is from myminifactory.com and you can get the model here.

While 3D printing is great at making props like this and it looked fine right off the printer, I still wanted it to look better. A little sanding to get rid of the 3D print lines, some black spray paint, and some silver dry brushing and it's looking pretty good! Below you can see how it looked off the printer.


It prints in 4 pieces because the batarang is designed to open and close.


And here's a little video of it.
