These days all you need to recreate Hollywood-caliber visual effects is a fast PC and some expensive 3D software. But if you want to try your hand at recreating old-school special effects, find yourself a 3D printer, make a miniature version of Ghostbusters’ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and go to town with a blowtorch.

Puppeteer and voice actor Dan Milano answers the question we never thought to ask by dressing his daughter in the Stay Puft sailor suit and unleashed her on the plastic proton pack-wielding…
