No one wants to wander through a labyrinth and encounter a minotaur. As far as I know, Instructables user octopied kept his cool costume out of mazes. He made the creature outfit for a university project and used a combination of products – including silicone and leather – to make it. The building process took around 12 weeks and cost about $580.
I sculpted the mask over a plastic head and cast it in silicone, the horns are made of fibreglass and mounted on a fibreglass skull cap.
The tunic is linen, for the pattern I just took a long sleeve T-shirt belonging to the model, placed it on the fabric and drew round it with a seam allowance and lots more length at the bottom.
The pauldrons and belt are cut from a piece of very heavy weight leather, then dyed and stitched together, the stone in the belt is plastic and sprayed with car paint and the buckles I bought from a leather supplier (I think they are designed for use in saddlery).
The cloak is just a piece of wool fabric, pinned at the front (I meant to make some proper fastening but ran out of time)
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.
