Stardust is an underrated film. Between the fantastical story, the adventure, and the costumes, there’s a lot to love. Yvaine’s costumes are especially gorgeous. Yvaine is a star who falls to the ground, and when she falls, she’s wearing a stunning, flowing silver dress that does indeed look like a fabric representation of a star. The color makes a difference, but mostly, it’s the way the fabric hangs and flows. Costume designer Sammy Sheldon did an amazing job with it. Lauren Digby made a replica of the costume for her Stardust themed birthday party. She started with a Style pattern (#2370) but altered the sleeves and added neck bands and cuffs. She had some problems with the satin-y fabric not being so much suited for an outdoor party with cold weather (maybe Merida’s wool dress from Brave would have been a better choice), but it hangs nicely and looks like the one in the film.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
