It has come to our attention that one of our Halloween makes may be a little bit scary.

Blog_BOO_spiders

 

Our ‘BOO’ sign was designed to show the potential 3D printing has to be a little bit scary. We do apologise to anyone who has printed this design not knowing it would result in them being a little bit scared. Faberdashery would like to assure the public that ‘BOO’ is safe to print and has been done so already by some very brave members of the public.

If you are worried about printing ‘BOO’ we recommend you adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. If you are of a nervous disposition make sure you have somebody with you at all times during the print in case you get a little bit scared.
  2.  Although the design is written in upper case letters, there is nobody actually shouting ‘BOO’ at you.
  3. You can print this design in Glowbug Yellow, but be aware that it will glow in the dark which will make it a little bit more scary.
  4.  If a glowing ‘BOO’ is too scary, you may want to print it in Classic Black or Smoky Black, ensuring it is only visible during the day and can’t scare you at night.
  5.  If a Classic Black ‘BOO’ is too scary, consider printing it in a pastel coloured filament which will make it a bit less scary.
  6.  If others worry that the print itself is inherently evil, remind them that it is made from PLA which is actually a nice plastic.
  7. ‘BOO’ can be placed beside of a nest of spiders, but that’s really creepy, so, you know, maybe don’t do that.
  8. For some people this print will be simply too scary. If so, we would recommend printing one of these designs instead in some nice rainbow colours.

If you have printed ‘BOO’ and are worried that it is a little bit too scary, please get in touch.

At Faberdashery we love any chance to scare ourselves silly. So in celebration of the most terrifying time of the year, we have put together our definitive guide to 3D printing for Halloween.

Here’s our top ten Halloween 3D prints.

1. Glowing skulls

These prints come from our ‘Skull Playset’ which you can find on Thingiverse and Youmagine. They make great halloween decor as well as spooky serving bowls. Add to the terror and print them in Glowbug Yellow. Or go big, like we did, and print a terrifying giant skull!
 
2. Crows

Murder of crows anyone? Yes, of course! Find the 3d file here.
 
3. Poison Apple

This apple design has to be the perfect use for Classic Black this Halloween. It’s also a great way to dish out halloween treats. Put a few sour sweets in the mix and wait for your victim to take a bite! Mwahahahaha…..
 
4. Pumpkins

Don’t get stuck with hollowing and carving shenanigans. Put your 3d printer to work and print out these fantastic pumpkin prints in translucent Orange Fizz!
 
5. Goblin

Originally designed to sit atop your drinks bottle, this 3d printed troll by David Hagemann works perfectly as a glowing halloween goblin. He does have printable eyes but we found that these candy eyeballs were just a bit more menacing.
 
6. Glo-bobs
Blog_glo-bobs
 
We’ve called these Glo-bobs as they are designed to thread onto glow stick bands. They make great alternatives to halloween sweet treats and keep little monsters visible in the dark.
 
7. Bats

Bats are a halloween staple. These designs are quick and easy. Print them in Classic Black and Smoky Black and hang them up or stick them on your walls for some spooktacular decor. Find the designs on Thingiverse and Youmagine.
 
8. Spiders

These spiders by Scott Lahteine are creepily realistic and perfect for Halloween mischief. Place them amongst your Halloween decor, put them on your Halloween treats, nestle them in your Halloween hair or launch them at your Halloween victims….
 
9. Tree Stump

That tree is definitely looking at you funny! We shrunk down this Tree Stump Pencil Holder by Casey, and printed it in Smoky Black to create the perfect Halloween candlestick.
 
10. Boo

We hope you have enjoyed our Halloween 3D print guide. We’ll be posting our Halloween prints on Twitter, Facebook and Google + in the run up to Halloween. We’re really looking forward to seeing your Halloween makes so be sure to tag them with Faberdashery.

Happy Halloween printing everyone!
