With all the foam armor builds I’ve featured over the last year, you’re probably aware that craft foam and EVA foam are well suited to the task. That said, I still come across costumes that I can barely believe are made from foam – like these Skyrim draugr costumes by Punished Props. They manipulated EVA foam floor mats to make the armor look like hammered metal. Pretty incredible, huh? They put together this helpful video tutorial to show you how to replicate the effect:
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.
