League of Legends characters are tricky to keep track of. Not only are there several of them, but each character seems to have different skins available. Plural. That means the cosplay possibilities are practically endless. DeviantArt user pixity-mish, a.k.a. Shannon, made the Dragon Trainer skin version of Lulu. It’s her second ever cosplay, and because of it, she learned to sew. Here’s what she said about construction:
The hat was made by following the guide from Yasminicorn. It is basically some thick wire, twisted and tied together in a wire frame then covered with batting/stuffing and then covered with an old sheet – since the brown material I bought originally wasn’t enough to cover the whole thing. I think it turned out better that way. The purple part was a blue material that we got an an op-shop and dyed it a little to get it more of a purple colour. Unfortunately it was a synthetic fabric so the colour wasn’t very strong but I think it came out perfectly!
The ‘coin’ was made from plastimake, and the other hat piece was made from foam and paper mache.

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.
