Ax, also known as Axceleration Cosplay, built a killer Hawkgirl cosplay last year and she filmed a series of helpful YouTube tutorial videos showing how the armor was assembled, painted, weathered — everything. Though now would be a great time to make a Hawkgirl costume since the character is about to make a live action appearance in the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow television series on The CW, the how-tos are helpful if you plan on working with Worbla for any costume. There’s plenty of useful information on shaping the thermoplastic and making it look like battle-damaged armor.
You can see more helpful videos (there are a lot of them!) at Ax’s YouTube channel.
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.
