Comicpalooza 2014: 10 Costumes from Day 3 #cosplay
Day three of Comicpalooza is over, and as usual, I’m feeling inspired to work on my cosplay projects. Attending conventions and seeing the hard work others put into their costumes always makes me want to do the same. It’s smart to take notes or photos to keep track of props and accessories you like or costumes you want to replicate someday. Haven’t been to a convention lately? Look through photos from others – like these – and start brainstorming about your next project. Hopefully these ten cool costumes from Comicpalooza will help get the gears turning:

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.
