Blood Elf Priest Costume And a Leather Armor Tutorial
If you want to see some truly impressive costumes, go to BlizzCon. Blizzard Entertainment’s convention promotes their major franchises, and cosplayers bring their A-games. Many of the outfits in World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo are elaborate – such as this Blood Elf Priest. Cosplayer OrangeMoose built the ensemble, and it’s show-stopping. She wrote a helpful tutorial on making the leather armor, and this step details cutting the pattern pieces:
I used the scratch awl to trace around my foam shapes on the leather. I cut them out and used the edge beveler to clean up the edges (front and back). After that I used a wool dauber and daubed a liberal amount of the gum tragacanth on all edges. I then used the edge slicker to rub/buff the edges of the leather. What this does is seal the edges to keep them from fraying and it also gives the leather a nice shiny rounded edge.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
