Cosplay Artist 3D Prints Incredible Replica of Captain Hook’s ‘Hook’ From Movie

Share this Article

When you think about Disney stories, there is one that stands out which has continued to attract children and adults alike for decades. It combines the elements of good and evil, into a magical story that teaches us that we should never be afraid to use our imaginations. If you haven’t guessed it, we are referring to Peter Pan, and the many stories of antagonist Captain Hook.

Back in May, we did a story on a really incredible “Age of Ultron” cosplay mask that was 3D printed and then post processed and painted by a man named Michael Ruddy.

Now Ruddy has created yet another amazing cosplay prop, one which would make any fan of Captain Hook quite excited.

“We were commissioned for by popular cosplayer Connor Breen to make a replica of the Hook used by Dustin Hoffman in the movie hook, I feel we delivered with flying colors,” Ruddy tells 3DPrint.com

The printing process took a staggering 25 hours to complete, and the entire hook was printed with filament from FormFutura.

“It was deigned (in Blender) using reference images from the movie ‘Hook’,” Ruddy tells us. “The hook part is 6 inches [long] and the hand cup is 8.5 inches high and 4.5 inches wide .”

As you see it depicted in the photos, this is exactly how it will be shipped to their client. However, Ruddy tells us that in the future Connor Breen is looking into getting it coated in chrome to give it the genuine look and feel that the original prop had.

We’ve seen 3D printing used quite extensively within the cosplay space. Hobbyists have seen the potential that this technology has in creating exact replicas based on photographs, available 3D models and even 3D scans of original props. The movie industry itself has recently begun to turn toward the use of 3D printing as well in the creation of one-off completely original props. Over the next decade or so, undoubtedly we will see the prop making space continue to transition from techniques of manual sculpting to those of digital sculpting and 3D printing.

We will definitely be keeping an eye on Ruddy’s future creations as everything he has made so far has been no less than spectacular. What do you think about this 3D printed “Captain Hook” hook?
