A few weeks ago I highlighted the work Andy, also known as Valentine Cosplay, was pouring into his Oberyn Martell costume. The Game of Thrones character was portrayed by Pedro Pascal, and Andy styled his hair and trimmed his beard to match Pascal’s look in the series. He finished the costume for London Super Comic Convention, and it looks incredible. Andy’s hard work got him into the top 10 of the costume competition. He didn’t win, but he learned and said he’ll apply feedback from judges next time.
Regardless of whether he took a prize home, I think he wins for the insane number of hours he poured into this project. He made everything from scratch. You can see the progress of the costume on Facebook.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
