Captain Phasma Armor Build

Phasma cosplay 1

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just hitting theaters this week. Finally. The film will be inspiring cosplayers for years (probably decades) to come and already is. Replica Props Forum (RPF) user jimmiroquai started on a full set of armor inspired by Captain Phasma. He used reference photos from the display of the armor at D23 Expo and a First Order stormtrooper action figure too. He dealt with making the armor and helmet first before worrying about the chrome finish. He ended up going for glossy paint with polyurethane clear and then chrome paint.

The catch is apparently chrome paint doesn’t work with a top coat. To avoid having to keep the paint in pristine condition (which would be almost impossible anyway), Jim went for a more weathered look.

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.
