Over the past few years, 3D printers have been increasingly making a name for themselves in the cosplay world. And that’s hardly surprising, as even a basic model can be used to produce a few cool and unusual accessories to complete your costume. But then again, some people take things a bit more seriously. People like Nimi Becza and Lael Lee, who have together realized a truly amazing addition to any Destiny cosplay: a highly detailed Bad Juju rifle replica.
