FanShroomies for Fan Expo

I’ve got this weird idea in my head that I might be able to swing going to fan expo with a toy and make enough money to at least afford the experience.  Part of this weird idea is hinged on the following:

  • whether I can be happy enough with a toy design to take there.
  • whether I can convince myself to take the risk.
  • whether, at this late date, I can actually get a spot at Fan Expo.

So here’s the first step, FanShroomy, a sketch:

And the next step, was to make a 3d model… The middle model was created first, and then I thought it would be nice to give it a couple of friends for variety.  Here is the render:

And the next step … print it!  I’ve taken off a couple of prints already and modified them to make them look nicer / print better.  I have a set that have been spray painted with a base coat drying at the moment.

Updated with a shot of the 3d prints w/ base coat:

If this works out, then I think these, along with some Lucky Kitty’s, Monster in a Kid Suits, Tiki toys from my Pirate Festival Collection, and perhaps some skully plushies, will be enough to make it!  Wish me luck 🙂
