Halloween is fast approaching. For kids and for those who are young at heart, it means that it is almost time to go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood wearing outrageous Halloween costumes and getting candy from neighbors who are willing to get into the spirit of Halloween. For those who consider themselves too old for candy and tricks, they probably have a Halloween costume party to go to for some grown-up fun.
With Halloween just around the corner, you only have a few weeks to come up with a costume for yourself or for your child. This does not really have to be a problem. Some time before Halloween, the stores would be teeming with costumes for sale. But if you want a one-of-a-kind costume, you can make your own using a wide-format printer.
Why a Wide-Format Printer?
Why should you use a wide-format printer to create your Halloween costume instead of sewing it? There are just some costume ideas that cannot be bought from the store or sewn by hand. With a wide-format printer, you can create just about anything, especially if it happens to be a 3D printer as well.
Printing your costume instead of sewing it can take away a lot of the time you need to sew or create your costume. Instead of working on your costume for days on end, you only need to wait a few hours for the printer to finish printing your costume and for the ink to dry upon it. And then, you can sew whatever loose ends are left for a fully finished look.
With a wide-format printer, you can have as elaborate a Halloween costume as you want. Your imagination and creativity are the only limits.
How to Make Your Costume
Before you can print out your costume, you need to know what exactly it is that you want to wear for Halloween. You can opt to print out your whole costume if you want. Or, you can buy the outfit and trim it according to how you wish it to look like and just have your mask and headgear printed.
If you want to print out your costume, make sure that you resize the images you will use according to the measurements of your body. You will definitely want a costume that fits. You can create a pattern first and then have the image fit the pattern. Afterwards, print them out on the fabric that you want and then sew the loose ends together.
If you feel that making a Halloween costume this way seems too complicated, you can just print out your mask. There are wide-format printers that print directly on 3D objects regardless of the material of which they were made using inkjet technology. Just get a mask mold, design your mask using graphics software, and then print out the mask.
Making your own Halloween costume can be fun. But you can make the project even more fun and come up with an entirely unique costume with a wide-format printer.
