Neil Gaiman’s Coraline is one of the most quietly creepy books I’ve read. The scary parts lurk just under the surface and grab you when you least expect it. The 2009 stop motion film adaptation of the book captured that vibe and did a wonderful job bringing the disturbing Other Mother to life. Cosplayer Tristezza, also known as Miss Trisi, was apparently inspired by the film and made a downright chilling version of the Other Mother costume. The costume is from a few years ago and though Tristezza says she sees flaws she would like to fix, it’s hard to imagine it being more on point. She even took the time to color her teeth and make them look as though they’re rotting.
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.
