Nudity can be quite controversial, whether you are referring to the 70-year-old men and women at a nudist colony, nude sunbathing at the beach, or the latest issue of Playboy Magazine. There are those individuals who think nudity should be banned from our culture altogether, while others hold the radical belief that everyone should walk around naked. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
For one website, its viewers, and the female models who are on display, nudity is a thing of beauty. I’m referring to the SuicideGirls, a site with which a good portion of male, as well as female, internet users are relatively familiar. The site, which features dozens of “alternative pin-up girls,” has been gaining in popularity as of late, ranked as one of the top 6,000 sites in the United States and 15,000 sites worldwide.
The idea of featuring females with an “alternative look,” means you will find girls who simply don’t fit into the stereotypical “pin-up girl” appearance. Instead you will find girls with hair dyed red, tattoos covering their bodies, and makeup that isn’t exactly something your grandmother would approve of. Beauty isn’t a question with these women though, as millions of people visit the site monthly to get a glimpse of these alternative beauties, by viewing their photos, their blog posts, and more.
Recently, one of the SuicideGirls, named Milloux, discovered something that really caught her eye. A SuicideGirl since 2008, Milloux has a following of over 10,000 fans on her profile. While browsing Instagram, she came across the profile of a company which we have covered in the past, called CoKreeate, and saw some of the amazing work that they do with 3D printing technology.
“I came across CoKreeate through Instagram and was instantly interested in working with the company based off of their work alone,” Milloux tells 3DPrint.com. “When it came my time to be scanned for my figurine, I found that they were not only friendly, helpful people, but were thorough and awesome at what they do. We were done in minutes and had a lot of fun doing it! I had only seen 3D scanning at Comic Con when it came to vinyl collectibles, but never had I seen a full 3D scan of a person prior to working with CoKreeate.”
Will Co, co-founder of CoKreeate, tells us that they plan on 3D printing a limited run of the Milloux figurines. They will then be autographed and made available for purchase by her fans.
“Everyone wants to be their own action figure, but not everyone has the cash to mass produce it,” explained Will Co. “That’s why we’re here to fill that gap. Stay tuned for many more SuicideGirls and their print collection.”
The idea of being able to create custom figurines on a one-to-one basis opens a lot of doors for individuals and companies looking to create custom products, but not looking to create enough to warrant the use of more traditional means of injection molding manufacturing. What CoKreeate does is allow individuals such as Milloux to create a limited quantity of a product, and even hold off on printing them out until the product has been sold. This saves a lot of time and money.
What do you think about this 3D printed figurine of SuicideGirl Milloux? Will this type of product be something we will begin seeing more and more of from companies, individuals, and celebrities? Discuss in the 3D Printed SuicideGirl forum thread on 3DPB.com. Check out some additional photos below.
