Comicpalooza 2014: 10 Excellent Costumes from Day 1 #cosplay
Another weekend, another comic convention. We’re headed into the time of year when the schedule is packed with show after show, and you know what that means: more cosplay! Though crowds didn’t seem thick at the first day of Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas, I still spotted inventive, impressive, and adorable costumes around the convention. Here are ten of my favorites (photos by me unless otherwise stated):
Gender swapped Ozymandias from Watchmen
Little Sister from Bioshock
Maya from Borderlands 2
Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones
Baby Thor and Obi-Wan (they barely stopped moving for photographs)
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.
