10 Fun & Easy Halloween Costumes You Can 3D Print at Home

Halloween is probably my favorite holiday of the year and is a not-so-insignificant reason why I made the decision to purchase a 3D printer in the first place. I’m a kid at heart and Halloween is the one time of the year when it’s appropriate and even acceptable to act like a kid. Having a 3D printer is, for obvious reasons, an awesome for anyone who enjoys Halloween, as it enables the 3D printing of accessories, components, masks and, in some cases, complete costumes.

By searching through sites like MyMiniFactory and Thingiverse, you can find thousands of free, printable designs made by some fantastic artists. Below are 10 awesome and easy to print ideas for anyone with a 3D printer. All of the files are linked so that, if you’ve got your own desktop fabricator, you can 3D print them at home. Enjoy! Note: in most cases, all images belong to the makers of these printable files and appropriate attribution can be found via the file links.

1. Kylo Ren (Star Wars)

3D printed kylo ren saber halloween costume

There’s no shortage of 3D printable Star Wars-inspired props. From blasters to light sabers, to Storm Trooper helmets, but with the upcoming movie, I’m going to have to go with this Kylo Ren mask. Though we know little about the character, the character’s mask and lightsaber are bad ass and ready to download at MyMiniFactory

2. Mr. Potato Head

3D printed mr. potatohead costume

Designed to work with interchangeable Mr. Potato Head parts, this mask is simple and one of the most clever 3D printable masks that I’ve seen.

3. Daft Punk

3D printed daft punk helmets

There’s no denying that Daft Punk have an iconic look and their helmets make for a great Halloween costume. I actually printed one of these last year for my step-son, who is a big fan of the French electro-disco duo. It’s definitely time-consuming, but worth it. Guy-Manuel’s helmet and Thomas’s helmet on Thingiverse.

4. Iron Man

Iron Man helmet displayed is a make by Moment on Thingiverse. Original model designed by user MIPRESIDENTE.

I’m not suggesting that you print a full Iron Man costume, as the cost and time involved make it an incredibly difficult costume to pull off (especially in just under a month), but printing some of the components to the costume should be easy enough. The helmet, Mark 42 forearm, and Arc Reactor are available on Thingiverse.

5. Freddy Krueger

3D printed Freddy claw

Freddy is an iconic horror villain with one of the coolest weapons of all time. I remember wanting to be Freddy for Halloween as a kid just to have that claw.

6. Jason Voorhees

3D printed jason mask

Jason is another iconic movie villain with what is probably the most recognizable mask in horror. On MyMiniFactory, Alan Stanford has uploaded a model of the mask in four printable parts.

7. Batman & Company

Batman is as interesting for his rouges’ gallery of villains as he is for being a billionaire vigilante with tons of cool gadgets, making the whole Gotham gang great for a group theme costume.

In addition to an awesome 3D printable cowl, utility belt, and batarang, there are great masks for villains including an amazing Joker mask as well as masks for Bane, Catwoman and Scarecrow.

8. Game of Thrones

3D printed game of thrones costumes for halloween

Game of Thrones is my favorite show right now and has no shortage of potential Halloween costume ideas available for printing. If you are going as Daenerys Targaryen, you can print a great baby dragon/dragon egg combo. There is also a crown and a cool Sons of the Harpy Mask at MyMiniFactory.

9. Wolverine

3D printed wolverine claw and mask for halloween

This is a particularly good costume if you want to try out a flexible filament like NinjaFlex or Filaflex. The Wolverine mask is detailed and, like the Freddy Krueger costume, who doesn’t want to walk around with Adamantium claws?

10. Low Poly Mask

3D printed poly masks for halloween

I love this Low Poly Mask. It’s so strange to look at, but makes for an easy Halloween costume. It can be combined with any attire and you can even add a mustache if you’d like.
