Dressing like Han Solo is a fantastic choice for Halloween, and it’s made better by adding the Millennium Falcon to the costume. Christine Alvarado of Du Buh Du Designs’ son Andres specifically requested the combination of captain and ship, and her husband Mark gathered items from around the house to construction the vessel (it doesn’t look like a hunk of junk) and added lights with a Dollar Store purchase. Christine explains:
The Millenium Falcon was lit with finger lights from the dollar store and some string lighting recycled from last year’s Tron Light Cycle costume. The shirt and vest were bought and we just used a pair of jeans with cut red bias tape glued to the sides.
Look at all the details he included! I bet this costume could make the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs.
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.
