If you admired the look of Maleficent in the live-action film from earlier this year, YouTuber Linz Mushel has a tutorial on making an affordable yet fantastic looking version of the costume. You’ll need the following supplies:
Black Duct Tape
Black Poster Board
Small Ball/Foam Ball/Green Ball for staff
My favorite part of the build is the horns and cap which she makes from black duct tape (it really can be used for everything), black ribbon, foil, lace, and a headband. The horns are made from foil covered with more black duct tape. That means it’s both lightweight and cheap.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
