10 Galactic Costumes from Star Wars Celebration #SWCA
Star Wars Celebration took place last weekend in Anaheim, and it was four days of all Star Wars all the time. It’s unlike any other convention I attend because it’s focused on a single fandom. Everyone is enthusiastic, passionate, and kind. The vibe is positive and welcoming, and that leads to so much creativity. Fans especially pour their hearts into costumes, and all eras of Star Wars were represented. I spotted cosplay from Star Wars Rebels, The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the original and prequel trilogies – everything. It warmed my Hoth-like heart. Here are 10 of the coolest costumes I saw:
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.
