In the category of costumes I haven’t seen in the wild before: a flying monkey costume from The Wizard of Oz. Well, it’s specifically a flying baboon from Disney’s Oz: The Great and Powerful. Talented cosplayer Beyond Creative Costumes! is responsible for the build. Besides the flying baboon, he’s dressed as character such as Batman from Batman Beyond and Ruby Rhod from The Fifth Element.
For the flying baboon costume, he began with a pre-made baboon mask and modified so it fit onto the front of hood. He made the bodysuit from crushed-velvet gray spandex, made baboon feet to wear, and covered the ensemble with fur. He also came up with a five-part template for the wings — he constructed them so they could be folded in and out and then crafted the finished wings from fabric on a frame. You can see a few in-progress shots below.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
