Marvel’s Doctor Doom is one of my favorite villains. Victor von Doom has a fascinating history and though he often torments the Fantastic Four and the world at large, I can’t help but respect his intellect. Anyway! If you need to throw together a last minute costume, you could opt for making a quick Doctor Doom mask from cardboard and pairing it with a green scarf and dress or a suit. The cardboard doesn’t look too shabby and will certainly be lightweight and easy to wear. Instructables user gaudopippo shared his techniques and also helpful templates. All you need is cardboard, silver paint, a hole punch, glue, and an elastic band. This is something you could definitely pull together in less than an hour – depending on how long it takes the paint to dry.
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.
