Shane Ruff of Ruff Studio went big for Halloween a few years ago. He and a pal made two elaborate gargoyles costumes that involved moving wings and stilts. The heads are a base of hard foam attached together with what appears to be electrical tape and softer foam was added to fill out the shape. A third layer of liner foam finished out the look of the head, and he used 3M spray glue to attach it. The wings were attached to a backpack harness and crafted from two layers of fabric, PVC pipes, poly batting, pipe insulation tubes, and hidden wires.

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.
