The Hatbox Ghost first appeared inside the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland in1969. The head of the Hatbox Ghost would disappear and reappear inside of the hatbox he was holding. It would alternate between the two locations. The 3D model included the fully body of the Hatbox ghost including a cane, cape, top hat, and the hatbox.

Whiteclouds 3D printed the infamous Hatbox Ghost with its Creality 3D printer farm out of PLA plastic. Standing at just over 6 feet tall, the ghost was cut into 56 prints and took 1,848 hours of print time to complete. It took 42 rolls of filament to 3D print. After printing, fusing and filling any inconsistent seams, the Hatbox Ghost was painted with automotive paint, airbrushed, and then protected with a matt-finish. The head was built with magnets making it very easy to move from the original position on the body to inside the hatbox.
