Books, games, film, comics, and television offer tons of inspiration for cosplayers. It’s impossible to count the number fictional characters you could choose to dress as — especially once you factor in a variety of looks and outfits. But even with so many options, you can always go the route of original design. Vanessa, also known as Deakath of Onirium Studios, excels in that department. She creates costumes from the ground up and makes every aspect of them. Her concepts aren’t quite like anything else I’ve seen. Case in point: this Celtic battle faun ensemble.
Vanessa’s combined fur, makeup, and absolutely stunning leatherwork. If you flip through her portfolio on Facebook, you’ll see tooling leather and dying or painting it seems to be her specialty.

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.
