It will surprise absolutely no one that I’ve found another League of Legends costume to highlight. This one is Irelia with a Nightblade skin as cosplayed by Daraya-crafts. I was struck by the massive energy sword that’s lit with an LED. In the game, the weapon can come apart and be used for a variety of attacks that make Irelia a formidable opponent.
Daraya crafted the weapon from XPS foam. The extruded foam is a rigid polystyrene. It’s more moisture-resistant than EPS foam but both materials can be used for prop-making. She sealed the prop and painted it and though the sword looked great, she ended up remaking it at a later date.
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.
