WANNA MAKE YOUR OWN TOY?

Have you had a killer toy idea in your head for years, but don’t have the know-how to make it a reality? Does the idea of it leave you awake at night with a gnawing, burning desire in your gut to turn your dream into a toy?

Well, after you’ve been to your doctor to rule out an ulcer, get your butt on over to the Origins Game Fair convention in Columbus, Ohio Thursday June 23rd and Saturday June 25th, because we’ve got the cure for what ails ya!

Joe DiDomenico, Art Director at Applehead Factory and the demented mind behind the Teddy Scares toy line, will discuss the “how to’s” of designing your very own toy! This guy knows his stuff and has mentored others through this process. Now he wants to give you his years and years of expertise... FOR FREE!!!

Still not motivated to come out and listen to this toy guru answer questions and offer insights into the making of the hit toy line Teddy Scares? Well, he will also be giving away some awesome, scary swag!

If it weren't for Joe my Tofu the Vegan Zombie toy, create din LightWave, probably wouldn't have come to be.... if you're in the area and have an interest in toys, I'd highly recommend the talk!

Sounds interesting, just a bit too far for me though.

Yes, I would love to but it's to far from here. I'm not really interested to make a toy, but a 3D zoetrope, very similar to the ones displayed at Studio Gibli and Pixar.

What process did you use William for your Toy, 3D model printed, then mass produced? or was it sculpt by traditional methods once you had a 3D model?

There are some cool companies out there that do 3D printing (Shapeways is one I can think of off the top of my head)... and SCULPTeo too

Soon you can build your own with excellent smooth resolution, it seems.
