  This build started off as simply playing around and trying to learn how to use our new 3D printer.  The head pieces came out great so I bought a ball for the body and was just going to make a full size display model.  The ball is used for outdoor lighting and had one hole in it.  We were playing around and I put it over Kayla.  Wow, she completely fit inside!  And that's when it turned into a cosplay project.

    I finished the head by gluing it together, painting, adding a few LED lights, and padding the inside with fabric covered foam.

    For the body I cut another hole for her head and a side door for the "thumbs up".  Foam was added for her shoulders, and the markings on the outside are vinyl decals made by a friend Cory Pacione at Creative Juices.

    Nikki made the glove last minute (2 hours before the convention) from an old t-shirt, cellophane wrap, and colored markers.
