Cosplay can be complex and involve making intricate pieces of armor or it can be more simple and involve replicating a character’s t-shirt. All kinds of building are valid and worth highlighting. DeviantArt user HeraDrawCos, also known as Hera, is working on a Hiro Hamada cosplay and that means making a copy of his unique t-shirt. She started with a paper stencil and placed it onto a red t-shirt – this would be a great use for a freezer paper stencil. She painted the robot on with acrylic paint, but you could also use fabric paint.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
