Introduction: Freddy Fazbear Microphone Prop
I made an instructable not long ago of my Freddy Fazbear halloween costume, but I didn't go into much detail on the microphone prop I used. This instructable will show you what I did to make the prop, and how you can make your own!

Step 1: The Original Microphone
The original microphone that I used with the costume was made from a bouncy ball glued to a cardboard tube, which I painted black. The top part is covered in duct tape, which doesn't look good at all. Since my costume uses gloves, I added a battery in the end of the mic to allow me to use my phone for sound effects. You don't have to do this, but I recommend it. If you do not have access to a 3D printer, you can use this method, but I found the 3D printer method much easier, and the final product looked much better.
Step 2: The 3D Printed Version
I made this model for the microphone in two halves for a few reasons. The first reason is that the printer wouldn't need to print a support for the rounded parts of the microphone. The second reason is the printer isn't the best quality printer available, and it was very likely that it would malfunction, jam, or mess up the print. By making the part in two halves, I wouldn't have to completely restart every time the printer makes a mistake.
To make the model, I used the second image for reference, and drew a few sketches of the mic I would model. I made sure to leave room for the battery, ass seen in the 3rd and 4th pictures.

Step 3: Assembling the 3D Printed Version
I printed the pieces in black to make the painting process easier. I used expanding gorilla glue to fill the gap between the pieces, and sanded it down after it cured. This left a small, white seam going down the microphone, but it wasn't very noticeable when I painted the top and bottom half of the sphere part silver. I put the battery in BEFORE I glued the parts together, which permanently kept it in the microphone. In the end, the microphone came out looking great, and looked almost exactly the same as the reference image I used.
Step 4: Conclusion
Thank you for reading this Instructable! I worked hard to make this microphone, and to keep it identical to the one in the game. I made the model from scratch in Autodesk Inventor.
