I’ve featured a couple of looks at AllieCat Cosplay’s impressive Lieutenant Allison Jakes costume in recent months. She took photos as she made the costume and shared a Worbla painting tutorial and also mentioned she used LEDs from Adafruit in the sword and in the breastplate. She contacted us to tell us about using our products for that and also for a wireless smoke machine:
Thank you so much for all of the wonderful products you offer, with your help I was able to seamlessly pull off a fully functional LED and wireless smoke machine using your LED strings and wireless remote for my Lieutenant Allison Jakes cosplay from Privateer Press: Warmachine.
I rigged the whole thing up so I didn’t have to fuss with leading wires of pulleys to any part of my costume and couldn’t have been any happier with how well it all turned out. I also put the LED strings all throughout the rest of my cosplay (breastplate/swords) and could not believe how well they still showed up in the light!
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.
