    Hoop Troop Verónica did such an amazing job making 17 custom hula-hoops for the ThreeForm performers at Maker Faire, she's been promoted to Captain, and I've made her this awesome outfit. :cool:

    The design was printed in WSF material at Shapeways and dyed a deep scarlet. The top has snap fasteners that also act as hinges. It is completed with black elastic string webbing. The bottom is a set of 10 overlapping plates joined with a clear vinyl line.

    More images from the incredibly fun photo shoot the other night are on the ThreeForm Facebook here: 408.114001098701667&type=3

    Tons of great imagery featuring the Hoop Troops is still flowing in to Flickr from World Maker Faire, like this one:
