Artists who can transform their appearance with makeup always impress me, and Elsa Rhae and Ashlea Henson are two such artists. I make it a point to keep up with their latest projects. I’ve featured both of them on the blog before, and they recently teamed up to work on a project together. They both applied cyborg makeup and came up with two very different looks. You can follow their tutorials and pair the makeup with a bodysuit, armor, or even a dress. The detail of the face paint means you can make it work with just about anything.
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.
