We’re big fans of the survival horror game series Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNaF). It’s about these life-sized animatronics from a kid’s Pizza parlor that wander the halls at night doing very bad things. When we got this cute dancing bear as a joke gift, we knew immediately that we wanted to turn it into a Freddy Fazbear animatronic. We picked Withered Freddy Fazbear as our model, who first appeared in the game *Five Nights at Freddy’s 2.* He’s got a great old look with tattered skin and wires hanging out. It’s exactly what I imagine an old ShowBiz Pizza or Chuck E. Cheese animatronic would look like in my nightmares.

Half of Freddy’s body is made with upholstery foam/high density foam. This stuff is hard to sculpt, but you really only need a sharp utility knife and something to sand it with. It’s great for this project because it’s able to compress with the bear’s movements and still keep its shape. His feet were sculpted with Apoxy Sculpt and his head and hands were 3D printed so that we could match the game model. We flocked all the 3D printed parts to make him look fuzzy and tie the two different textures together.

We’re so happy with how our FNaF Withered Freddy animatronic came out. We’ve been wanting to make Freddy Fazbear in real life, and it was nice to start with a small animatronic base. With the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie coming out this Halloween, we’re hoping to do even more FNaF animatronics! We’d eventually love to make life-sized animatronics of the whole crew – Bonnie, Chica, Foxy, and of course Freddy. Let us know which one you’d want to see first!!
