Canines and Cosplay

Meet Thorgi, the Corgi God of Thunder (and his Amazing Friends)

Thorgi

There are dog lovers, and then there’s Eric Ho, founder of Raw Legend Collaborations. His Shapeways store features Corgi dogs in “Thorgi” costume, and more.

Thorgi the CorgiIn the weird and wonderful world of 3D printing, there’s certainly room for a mash-up between Marvel super-heroes, cosplay, and our canine companions. It’s practically obligatory.

So praise the Norse gods for the invention of Thorgi, an adorable little Corgi dressed as the God of Thunder.

But wait, he’s bought some friends with him. Striking a heroic pose in dramatic lighting are Iron Corgi, the Corgi Knight, Super Corgi… You get the idea.

These kooky creations are the work of Eric Ho, the founder of a “3D printing collaborative design shop” called Raw Legend Collaborations.

Besides corgis, they also make other figurines, elaborate bottle openers, and other cool statues (how about a Creepy Condescending Willy Wonka printed in 14K gold?).

But it’s the corgis that really capture the imagination, so here’s a selection of the most popular designs. If you can stand even more cuteness, find all the designs on his Shapeways store here, where prices start at $25.
