MTN DEW Gaming - Kitting Kevin

Tim the Tatman is a known Gamer and Streamer playing video games of all kinds with large online audiences. His partner throughout his gaming experiences is Kevin - a stuffed penguin incorporated into his lore and streams. Kevin needed a new kit for gaming with Tim. We designed and 3D printed a custom headset and proportionate MTN DEW can for Kevin to use while streaming. After a quick measuring session, we made a custom cut and sewn shirt for Kevin. This shirt has Tim's face on it to cheer him on while gaming. Tim also received a shirt with Kevin's face. 3D files were created in-house from Kevin's measurements for the can and headset. Components were toyified to function with Kevin. A hollowed hole within the printed can allowed for a rubber band to snake through for easy flipper attachment. Headphones were thermoformed in place to fit Kevin's head.
