When I see genderbent costumes, it’s usually a female dressing as a male character. I’m starting to see more cosplay that goes in the opposite direction though, and this take on Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent by Chris Villain is a perfect example. He adapted her look gorgeously. Her cape is so high-necked we never see the robes underneath it so coming up with an alternate to a dress wasn’t necessary (nor was wearing a dress). This outfit has the high collar but a different front – almost like a choir robe — it’s full length. It’s striking and creative.
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.
