Once Upon a Time Rumplestiltskin Costume

I showcased one Once Upon a Time costume this week, and I figured it was time to look at another villain of the series: Rumplestiltskin. Though his Storybrooke alias Mr. Gold has a neat and tidy appearance, Rumple has a wilder look in the Enchanted Forest. He’s been affected by becoming the Dark One and wielding magic to gain power. Carl Daniels, a.k.a. Red Dragon Lord on DeviantArt, made a spot on Rumplestiltskin costume for Dragon Con last year. It looks like he walked right out of the fairy tale television series, even considering he used different colors in his take on the costume.

Here’s what he had to say about the crafting of the ensemble:

The vest and laced boot toppers are made from croc embossed uphostery leather. The Croc sleeves and mantle are made from deep croc embossed cowhide. The boots are redyed alligator with pilgrim straps sewn on . I have also made the dark ones dagger, a contract and ostrich quill pen to accompany the ensemble. It’s fairly screen accurate except I changed the color to my signature red and black motif.

I can’t imagine how long it took to stitch that many leather pieces together.

A closer look at the all important contract and the Dark One’s dagger:

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
