It’s not enough that the costumes and skins in League of Legends are creative and striking, the weapons are also impressive. Characters often wield giant swords or clubs — or in the case of Braum, a massive shield. Sandra, also known as Liika Cosplay, tackled a genderswapped version of the character and built the shield from Styrodur. She used varying thicknesses ranging from 3 centimeters to 12 centimeters for all the layers. She added horns from Styrodur as well. Before painting the monster of a shield, she primed the foam with wood glue. Once it was primed and dried, she used acrylic paint, an airbrush, and regular paintbrushes to finish the job. The finished shield is roughly the size of a small wardrobe. You can see in-progress photos below.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
