    I've made three so far, by far the biggest improvement was between the first and second.

    The mask is designed to print upside down. They are custom supports I added to keep the eye holes clean, as cura's standard supports didn't contour to the eye. Just pop them out when you are done.

    Thanks! I think I'll make this one free at least. Later I might do something like a patreon where every x amount of money I model a new mask. Right now I just want to see if anyone is able to make one.

    It's up on thingiverse! thingiverse.com/thing:1966810 I'll make revisions based on feedback, so if anyone could go over the directions and included files to check and see if they are usable, that would be much appreciated!

    I've come to the conclusion that since I'm not going to go into business selling masks, I might as well let people download my mask files and let them try them out themselves. What would you like to see as far as files, instructions, and pictures; and where would be the best place to host the files? (I'm leaning towards thingiverse) UPDATE, You can get the files here: thingiverse.com/thing:1966810

    I've bought a kig suit from them before. It wasn't awful but I had a better experience from Alice's store: aliexpress.com/store/group/Kig…sk/1727771_503462602.html

    In term of back of the head coverage, masks are far more comfortable if you're able to rest the back of your head on things.

    Just wondering why you use meshmixer as opposed to netfab basic? (I've never tried meshmixer) Getting the thickness right on the masks is a trick, I've had decent luck at about 2.5mm and 50% infill. Soldering is a good way to do it, but you will need to sand the seem a lot so don't lay it across any detail. Only weld-on 3 acrylic cement works better, but both that and soldering will give you a joint that won't rip apart. Every other method of joining PLA I've tried (loctite gel, weld-on 16, epox…

    A bundle might be nice because most color match the mask and the suit.

    The under 18 thing is an internet chat issue, not a kigurumi issue. And the admins really didn't have any choice but to ban you or the whole room would have likely been banned. Don't take it personally. If you want to do kigurumi, then great, just make sure you do it in a safe manner. I'd say try to meet up with groups not individuals. You're at a vulnerable stage in your life and some people will take advantage of that, read up on Elizabeth Smart sometime.

    Quote from victoria: “ I say people who do business in re-selling are bane of the internet. It prevents potential customers to find real makers ” I think it is too hard for people to buy kig masks. For one thing it's just about the most expensive form of cosplay in existence (The most expensive batman costume I could find on amazon is $600). Having made a few masks I totally understand the cost, but it's still a huge deterrent. And then there's the problem that no one outside of Asia sells them …

    How to put on a corset........

    Post

    Nice post! A few other tips I have picked up are to always loosen the corset laces before removing it (don't just snap it off) and to wear it for a few hours before fully tightening it. This will keep the corset from warping, and allow it to fit your body better.

    Also it occurs to me I should have said thank you for the compliment. Thank You!!! (^・ェ・^)

    Quote from Lain Minmay: “You have a very nice mask btw. May I ask where you purchased it?” I made it myself, 3d printed it. I may make the basic plastic form available on shapeways or some other printing service, but I have no interest in making them for sale myself.

    Alixpress doesn't sell anything themselves. They are a marketplace more like ebay or etsy than amazon. I've ordered a few things through Ali in the past (some latex clothes and electronics). I think most stores on Ali take advantage of government subsidized shipping. Which means in practice, despite any warranty, nothing there is returnable, because it would cost too much to ship back. I was looking at those masks before I bought my printer. They looked great online, but they raised their prices…

    The most off thing about the mask is that the eye spacing is too wide. You might be able to mitigate this by clever placement of the lash border. It should cover the white part on the outside of the face and the flesh part on the inside.

    It all depends on what will make you happy. I've seen people quite pleased with much worse. And I have a whole pile of failed masks that used to mock me. Don't beat yourself up for not meeting your own standards on an early (first?) try. For me, the import thing was getting to the point where I could iterate on the design quickly. Build in failure as a part of the design process. If all you want is a high quality kig mask, then yeah give up and pay someone else to make it, it will cost you a lot…

    How to add a fan to a mask.

    Post

    Kinetic, you might be the right person to ask about this, so I'm trying to install a 12v fan and run it off of a 5v usb powerbank. I've got a little 5v to 12v step up, and I was thinking about adding a fan speed controller after that. But... I assume a fan speed controller is just an adjustable step down. I doesn't make much sense to put a step down directly after a step up, so I was trying to find an adjustable step up. I found a good one on alixpress that takes 5v in and has a range of 5v to 1…

    How to add a fan to a mask.

    I like the microcontroller idea. How small can they get? I'd probably try and mount it next to, or inside, the battery. I've been checking out various switches as well, I plan to mount a fan off/on switch behind the ear(or a fan speed controller knob if I can find a small one). I was thinking of adding a switch under the chin to activate when I open my mouth widely, but I have no idea what it would control (laser eyes?). I did a little more work on my mask, improved the vision to a level where i…
