Crazy machines and exotic chemicals! The perfect mix for making extraordinary creatures like you have never seen before! Brought to you by FeraProp Custom Prop and Costume, we will be exhibiting an exciting look into the processes we use to make elaborate mascot costumes and more! Our focus this year is how we blend digital design, additive manufacturing, and advanced materials to make our creatures. We will be bringing a plethora of 3D printed parts, casting molds, and a new addition to the workshop, a Formlabs Form2! We will also have examples of the materials we use from Smooth-On. Last year we had a respectable display of some of our early work, but this year we are taking it up a level! Be sure to drop by and say hello, check out our costumes, and pick our brains!
Hey there! Name is Mike, but you can call me Circuit! I make elaborate mascot costumes using the latest technology and materials for my company FeraProp. I am a member of the Familab Hackerspace in Longwood Florida. If you live in the Orlando area, you should go check it out!
On a typical day you can find me waist deep in 3D modeling/sculpting, sewing, casting, printing, painting… just so many different practices of making. I love collaborating with other makers to develop new methods for costume building that utilize emerging technologies. Be sure to find me at the Faire and chat about some of the awesome stuff I will be showing off!
