It's a cup with legs. Why? Because the world needs more cups with legs.

The legs are made in Poser, the cup was extruded and joined to the legs in Photoshop. That's as a real 3D object, mind, not just retouched.


  1. Print the legcup.

  2. Put an egg in it, if you like, but that will make it top heavy so you'll have to hold the base while you're eating it.

I've printed this successfully up to 12cm (4.5 in) high. I have managed to print a larger version, about 1.5 times taller, but the feet need to be taped down after printing to stop the legs wobbling.

This thing could provide one with a legcup on the competition.

If you put a base on it, it would be lots more stable when filled
or just give her REALLY big feet!

It does stand up, even when filled with liquid - but it wouldn't take a spoon hitting a boiled egg. And don't you think things look a bit cheap when they're on a stand?

Give her flip-flops/thongs/jandals, that should give a flat base while still being 'fun'.

A Flegon of your finest mead!
Or for a very leggy wine.
Need a version with some more feminine legs for a nice sexy champagne glass or "champlegen glass".
Somebody stop me, please before I pun again. 

I have to say, it's brilliant!
