Dragon Con is happening in Atlanta, Georgia, this weekend, and the four day convention is a sort of mecca for cosplayers. Of all the conventions I’ve attended, I’ve never seen one as focused on the art of costuming as Dragon Con. People arrive and start dressing up two days before the convention even starts, and they pull all out the stops. It’s the home for the most creative, obscure, clever, and elaborate costumes you can imagine. Here’s a sampling of ten costumes I spotted on the first day:
Cecil Gershwin Palmer
Nathan Fillion inception
Steampunk Mario Bros.
The White Witch
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.
