Rosalina isn’t the most well known female character in the world of Super Mario — that honor goes to Princess Peach — but she’s pretty great. Cosplayer Li Kovacs is working on a costume based on the Rosalina Amiibo and has already made a costume inspired by Rosalina’s look in Mario Kart 8. She even added the decals and proper colors to the bike (even if they’re added digitally, it still had to take time). Li made the race suit from spandex but ended up having to make it twice because she didn’t like the quality of the white fabric. Yes, even experienced cosplayers have to scrap things and start over. The boots were built from a base and covered in fabric. She found or made every part of the costume, styled the wig, and molded and cast the gems for the costume’s crown and brooch.
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.
