The Making of Guardians of the Galaxy Props and Costumes
As you’ve probably seen from the Guardians of the Galaxy costumes and props we’ve been posting, the film is making an impression on cosplayers. The members of the Guardians have memorable costumes that aren’t like what they wore in the comic books. Fortunately, Marvel knows several of us enjoy taking a closer look at designs and materials that went into crafting the costumes and props in the film, and they’ve released a couple of behind the scenes videos focusing on those aspects.
Costume Designer Alexandra Byrne and Prop Master Barry Gibbs discuss the choices they made, and the videos also show some beautiful close-ups of the fabrics and weapons. Get ready to take detailed notes and screenshots, cosplayers! Part one is linked above, and here’s part two:
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.
