World of Warcraft’s Tyrande Whisperwind is a leader of the night elves and a high priestess among other things. Her appearance is striking, and cosplayer AllieCat captured it with a recent cosplay. She fell in love with the design and spent a month putting the costume together. She sewed the dress, sculpted all the latex details by hand (see a picture of a finished mold below), and cast the LED gems from resin. She used LEDs and other electronics to make the gems glow.
To make the bow, she created a template from paper and then cut it from foam board. She used expanding foam to add the bulk of the bow. She then carved the expanding foam down with a knife to the general shape of the bow. Next, she covered everything with papier mache and wallpaper paste to cover any holes. From there it was all about paper clay, smoothing, sanding, modelling paste, Gesso, and painting. She explains it all with in progress photos on her Facebook page.
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.
