One area of cosplay where I get lazy is my hair. I’m reluctant to wear wigs, let alone don a bald cap. Paying attention to every detail though – even your head – is what makes great cosplay. This bald cap tutorial by DeviantArt user BlackRabbitArtisan covers the basics and will give you a better understanding of a few different materials. She used thick latex, non-latex sponges, baby powder, a powder brush, and a head. She begins by covering the model head in latex:
Stipple the latex evenly over the head with your sponge. You’ll be building this up so don’t overload your sponge with latex or it will be lumpy. Either allow to air-dry or use a hairdryer to dry the latex between each layer.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
