The Story Behind the New Ecto-1 Hood Ornament in Ghostbusters

ecto-1 hood ornament 1

The Ecto-1 was decked out with a new hood ornament in the recently released Ghostbusters film, and that hood ornament was made by a cosplayer. Shawn Thorsson of Thorsson & Associates Workshop, costume and prop makers, was contacted by his friend Peter Rubin about crafting it within a week. Peter had a roughed out design, and Shawn received approval and the 3D model 24 hours later. He 3D printed the ghost-shaped hood ornament on two different printers and got to work on molding and casting them immediately. He cast them from Smooth-Cast 300 before finishing them with a few layers of paint.

He shipped them to the production office for Ghostbusters and thanks to passersby posting pictures from the set, Shawn got to see his Ecto-1 hood ornament in its new setting rather quickly. You can see the images at his website.
