In the video game Dark Souls, Dark Sun Gywndolin has an intimidating appearance. He’s a villain who uses the illusion of Gwynevere to hide his true countenance. Cosplayer Cloud-Dark took on replicating the outfit using two different bridal fabrics for the dress, foam rubber, spray and acrylic paints, Wonderflex, wooden sticks, modeling clay, and more. For the strings of gold beads that down the back of the costume like wings, she strung a ton of beads by hand. The golden wings feature more than 700 metal tubes, 1,000 spacers, and a several other decorated gold beads.
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.
