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.
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.
