Stilgar Stillsuit Costume #Dune

stilgar

If you want to survive in the deserts of Arrakis, you’ll need a stillsuit. Sometimes it seems like you need the wearable exchange system to get by at a comic convention. DeviantArt user J-CashMD made a Stilgar costume to wear at Denver Comic Con last year, and he won second place in the craftsmanship competition. He started with the base of lycra bodysuit:

First pieces of neoprene glued on a lycra bodysuit.
The body suit has been predrawn with dimensional paint “tubing” in some locations
Material is fabric coated neoprene, 1/8″ thick
Glue is DAP contact cement
Once completed, the whole thing has to be coated with latex paint; a black base (multiple coats, this stuff drinks paint up), and a thin top layer of metallic brown to give a “sand-impregnated” look. Then rubbed with real sand and cinnamon (for that melange spice scent!)

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.
