“For our workshop we will teach 3D scanning and printing using an X-Box Kinect, ReconstructMe, and our PrintrBot 3D Printer. The workshop will be led by Mariano Ulibarri, Parachute Factory’s Director, with help from several of our Hacker Scouts. Guests will learn the basics of 3D capture and printing, and have a chance to be scanned in 3D and uploaded to Thingiverse!”

Little Red Riding Wolf cosplay by KBD
From chain mail to felt and clay Knight Blue Designs knows how to create full costumes and articles for any Comic Con, LARP (Live Action Role Playing), or event…
“We create custom costumes, set design and propmaking. Sewing a costume or building a prop depends on budget, detail, deadline, and the materials and capabilities available in our creation lair. Creating costumes and props exactly from the artwork of a 2D or 3D cartoon can be intricate and takes time to bring it to reality. Almost everything we create was created custom for each specific client.”
