I have some bad news. If you were planning on winning the Halloween contest competition by cutting a couple holes in a sheet or wearing a store bought mask, you don’t stand a chance this year. Even if you were planning on spending hours hand crafting your costume, it’s not going to be any easy task to get the number one spot. That’s because Aiman Akhtar has set the bar so high with his 3D printed costume and model Jessica dru Johnson looks so stunning while wearing it.
The costume is the result of a commission by 3D World Magazine for a tutorial published in their December 2015 issue, on sale now. The creation has already received a laudatory welcome and it’s no case of beginner’s luck that this is the case. Akhtar, a 3D artist based in Los Angeles, has already been recognized for his talents by 3D World, the Huffington Post, and the jurors of the 3D Total Excellence Award. He has been working as a freelance 3D artist for nearly a decade for clients ranging from Harley-Davidson to Mary Kay Cosmetics applying what he learned in his undergraduate at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago as well as learning new skills along the way.
