Wear some space on your face and be a constellation for Halloween! This galaxy makeup is inspired by the Cassiopeia constellation and uses five FLORA NeoPixels to light up the night sky across your forehead, affixed with liquid latex. GEMMA and a coincell battery back reside on a hair clip and run the pixels in any color you choose.
This guide will show you how to create the circuit and apply a colorful galaxy makeup effect that will be a sure hit at your party or costume parade.
You will need:
Five FLORA NeoPixels
Coincell battery holder and two CR2032 batteries
Wire strippers, flush snips, and tweezers
Soldering iron and solder
E6000 craft glue
Liquid latex and sponge applicators
Various colorful purple, pink, and blue eyeshadows and brushes
Loose makeup glitter
False eyelashes and mascara
Special thanks to Risa Rose for the makeup look and modeling!
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.
