Masque of the Red Death 02-09-2008 03:04 PM

Has anyone tried their hand at making their own toys of microbes which aren't likely to be produced any time soon? Some friends and I have been talking about doing this (mainly with fictional microbes and such), and I'm curious whether anyone else has any experience with it.

I have plans for making one! I was about to make a tapeworm, but I wasn't able to get to the fabric store...:(

I made mini versions of several of the GiantMicrobes using poms and turned them into geeky fridge magnets :D. I think people have made their own, I remember seeing a picture someone posted where a grandma I think made a kid a GIANT GiantMicrobe, it was in the photo gallery section of the forum.

I started my own company. Well, my own Bedhian company. (MCS members, remember the article 'New Country' from the MCS Newsletter II?) It is called 'Microbes of Bedhia' and it has already produced a couple pollens. Coming Next? Croup, Waterbear, and Elm Disease. I may put up a picture sometime. Well, I might.:)

i forgot to tell you that i have drawings of everything from rabbit fever to 2 new superbugs to the sickness that people in brazil call "sponge"(leishmaniasis). however as i only have one way to have them made it will probably be a while till they get done.
