Check Out This Cool Viola Costume from Soul Calibur
Soul Calibur is full of characters with interesting costume designs, and fortune teller Viola’s ensemble caught cosplayer Dessi-Desu’s eye. She knew she had to make the costume as soon as she saw it. Dessi-Desu said it was tricky to get the colors precisely right, but the end result looks gorgeous. She dyed fabric, stitched satin, strung pearls, and made the claws. The latter was her favorite part and here’s what she had to say about it:
The claws were very fun for me to make. This was my first time using wonderflex! I followed the concept art for Viola’s claws, so I had mobility with my fingers and they wouldn’t be locked in place. They’re a system of two rings on each finger (one at the top and one just under the middle knuckle). The paint job was done with silver and black acrylic. I built up washes of watered down black to create shadow and highlight.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
