A Gecko Dressed Like an AT-AT

Pet AT-AT costume 1

If you’re not ready to commit to making a costume for your human-sized self, there is another way. Design a costume for a pet first! You have to consider safety and comfortability factors and working on a smaller scale comes with challenges of its own, but pet cosplay is a good a place as any to start. Redditor Conquerofcephalopods recently turned his pet gecko into an AT-AT walker. And don’t worry! The little lizard wasn’t forced into the outfit. His owner says Reptar (that’s the gecko’s name) crawled into the base willingly, and then he just had to wait for Reptar to pop his head out for the picture.

Conquerofcephalopods said:

“The pieces are mainly made from cardboard. Poptart cardboard, to be specific. I sort of just winged the design phase and cut pieces to correspond to the previous one’s dimensions (I was supposed to be studying and couldn’t justify more time).I just used a cheap dollarstore acrylic for the base coats.”

He used a Faber-Castell marker along with the paints and managed to work a fair amount of detail into the paint job. I believe this gecko can take on the Rebels at Hoth.

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.
