Trophies for the Site 3 halloween party costume contest
by techknight, published
Every year, Site 3 coLaboratory http://site3.ca has a halloween party.
This year, I whipped up some trophies for the costume contest with my MakerBot Cupcake. (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a prize for oversized costumes.)
I combined Bioluminescence's Deus Ex candelabra at different sizes to create a base, and used my trusty Plastruct Bondene to weld them to different scales of akaziuna's vampire skull and Artec's celtic skull.

Give a Shout Out
- Slice the parts with extra solid layers and no shells to give them some heft
(this is really important - the default settings in skeinforge tend to produce objects that are too light to feel "real", and a trophy should be substantial enough to brain someone with it)
- After printing, use a solvent to weld the skulls to the bases
