Turning dolls medieval
Barbie: fashion, mermaids, dream houses, and style dolls. How about warrior?
Jim Rodda, a 3D-printing enthusiast, wants to develop an open-source 3D printed suit of plate mail compatible with Barbie fashion dolls. Dubbed Faire Play, the armor files will be distributed digitally and can be created from a range of materials.
As strange as the invention is — although perhaps it is a welcome change from the usual clothes Barbie dolls wear — the funding campaign has gone beyond its original goal of $5,000.

Printing personalized sex toys
If you want to add creative flair to your bedroom toys, Makerlove.com offers a variety of free sex toy design files so you can print products from your home 3D printer.
The company's range includes both standard shapes and the bizarre (think Justin Beiber), and the firm recommends you buy vibrating motors from Vibrators.com, which is sponsoring the project.

3D printed bikinis
The N12 bikini is the first ready-to-wear garment produced purely through 3D printing technology.
Designed by Continuum fashion, in cooperation with the Shapeways 3D Printing online printing store, the N-12 is composed of tiny nylon disks that hook together. Each component — including the strap, cups, and halter — are printed and sold separately, amounting to roughly $300 to own one for yourself once you snap each part together.
