Amazing costumes worn at Dragon Con are still showing up around the web, and Kevin Jones’ Urdnot Wrex cosplay from Mass Effect is one of them. The costume is massive and warm, but the challenges didn’t stop Jones from wearing it to the crowded convention. YouTuber tank9 spoke with Jones about the build — he spent roughly a year making the costume and worked from life size drawings for reference. He used EVA foam, latex, resin, and more to craft the krogan. He said the most challenging part of the costume was making it functional, wearable, and comfortable.
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.
