Cosplayer Anna, aka Glitzy Geek Girl, was recently asked to participate in a Marvel vs. Capcom group for Dallas Comic-Con. She really liked Thor’s new design and took some time to figure out an easy way to make the God of Thunder’s elaborate costume. She used craft foam and wire to make the winged helm and used the same material to make the circles on the front of his armor. Here’s how she put together the fabric parts of the costume:
riginally I wanted to glue the brown cord (which is just a brown ribbon) and the silver discs to a black skater dress. But I realized I would lose a lot of the stretch in the dress and have trouble getting it on and off since there wasn’t a zipper in the back. So I sewed my ribbon onto a black halter corset that zipped up the front. Then I glued the silver discs to the corset and the bottom of the skater dress. The shoulder discs have a brooch backing so I could safety pin them onto my cape. The cape is just a red cloak I had from a Halloween store with the hood tucked under. And the brown belts are from Walmart.
My “chain mail” shirt is actually a silver sweater I bought at the mall that I thought resembled chain mail. I try to buy random things when I see them just in case I’ll need it for a costume. Same goes for the leggings – they are sold silver metallic leggings with fishnets over them! My boots are from Walmart with brown ribbon velcro’d around the ankle and calf. And I also used black ribbon for my bracelets.
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.
