Redditor Katsda decided to be Yokai, the villain from Big Hero 6, for Halloween. Katsda used a basic mask combined with a white cat mask to form the base of the disguise. She used layers of paper mache to build up the right shapes for the mask and then covered the dried mask with white spray paint. After she and her helper sanded down the bumps, they had an issue with spray paint and went back to add layers of Mod Podge to smooth out the surface again. It’s a pretty straightforward build, but the how-to documented by Kasda has helpful tips and can be applied to making any mask — not just Yokai.
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.
