Cambridge man 3D printing Squid Game-inspired masks for Halloween
Squid Game has become biggest-ever TV show on Netflix, company says
With Squid Game becoming the biggest-ever TV show on Netflix, there's no doubt fans will be dressing up as some of the show's characters this Halloween.
The South Korean dystopian survival drama is well known for its distinct costumes and masks.
Now, a Cambridge, Ont., man is capitalizing on the show's success by 3D printing masks from the show.
Nathan von Minden, owner of Eisenfaust 3D Prints, started printing masks of the Front Man character after he couldn't find any at some local Halloween shops.
"[I] thought, I could design something like that," he said.
He received almost 30 orders and got to work right away. The process to create one mask takes two days.
"The process is fairly simple," he said. "It's basically as simple as pressing play on the printer and waiting ... The waiting part is the most challenging because you have to make sure the machine is running optimally and for two days you have to basically keep an eye on this thing."
Von Minden said the 3D printing industry has been increasing in popularity in the last few years.
