We got a glimpse at how popular the Rey costume is earlier this week. I saw so many Rey cosplayers at WonderCon that I stopped counting. If the costume is on your to-make list and you’re wondering how to make Rey’s staff, Kat Cosplay has you covered. She’s been working on a staff for herself and documented her process for a video tutorial. The foundation of the build is PVC pipe, so the prop is nice and lightweight. Watch the above video to get all the details.
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.
