From everything I’ve heard about The Last of Us, it’s a fantastic game. I could never play it though because it sounds scary. A mutated strain of the Cordyceps fungus has turned humans into zombie-like creatures, and they look terrifying. Known as Clickers, their heads have bloomed into weird mushroom shaped monstrosities. Cosplayer Amie Lynn made a gross but cool Clicker mask and shared progress photos on Facebook.
She used the following materials:
expanding foam (1 can per mask)
spray paint (ivory, burnt yellow, red)
acrylic paint (I used black and hunters green)
She began by spraying expanding foam onto a foam wig head that she covered with saran wrap. She kept layering the expanding foam in layers that looked like fungus:
The plates are made by spraying expanding foam in globs. When the outer layer of the globs become somewhat stiff and not tacky, I pressed down on them to flatten and shape them! Then I would peel them off of the tarp and press them onto the base piece into a design that I liked best! `
I’m both grossed out and intrigued.
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.
