Sometimes I see costumes so creative I have to stop and give them recognition. Case in point: This Attila costume by Redditor Phantom_Scarecrow. The character Attila appears in Disney’s Tangled as a patron of The Snuggly Duckling. During the song “I’ve Got a Dream,” we learn his dream is baking cupcakes. His cupcakes “are sublime.” He might look like a thug, but he has a baker’s touch — he even has a cupcake tattoo. Phantom_Scarecrow made the Attila costume for Tekko in Pittsburgh and carried around a pan of cupcakes. He even has a tattoo to match Attila’s!
Steel helmet. Real chain mail. 3d printed belt buckle, studs, harness ring, and horns. I made everything except the cupcake tray and oven mitts.
This is a great example of how fun it can be to pull cosplay inspiration from characters who aren’t necessarily front and center.
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.
