Deathstroke has been in DC Comics for years, but his recent appearance in Arrow seems to have made the character a little more popular. I’m basing this unscientific observation on the fact that I’ve seen more cosplayers dressed like Deathstroke than ever before — cosplayers like Instructables user Shadow of Intent. He made a replica of the costume mostly from foam with a dual color paint. He said:
The build time was about 10 weeks (200 hours) and cost about £60 in parts. Some I’d already purchased for use with my other costumes, like the thermal top, and others I had plenty spare after finishing (glue gun sticks). Other inexpensive items I used but already had were elastic and Velcro, although these are available at a low cost of around £1 a metre.
He said at least 50 hours of the work was spent turning armor sections in 2D nets, measuring the reference images, and drawing them onto foam. You can see a few in-progress pics below.
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.
