Eric, also known as Coregeek, is a part time builder/maker who has been making stuff since his teens. He started creating costumes for his daughters four years ago, and he and his wife have started cosplaying last year. He’s built Loki armor, prop weapons like Thranduil’s sword, and much more. You can see photos of his work at his website – one of the most awesome examples is this Fierce Deity Link ensemble from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask:
The armor in the costume is EVA foam hardened with Smooth-on’s Epsilon resin. Eric has made armor from both EVA foam and Worbla and gets asked frequently which is better. He recently released a video going over the pros and cons of each, and it might help you decide which to use for your next project.
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.
