Candy Land was a staple of my youth, and if you would have told my younger self that she’d one day see cosplay featuring characters like Queen Frostine and Gloppy, she wouldn’t believe you. She wouldn’t know what the word cosplay meant either though so… Maweezy Cosplay worked on a Gloppy costume for KatsuCon, but she did a completely unique take on the character that you wouldn’t imagine. Gloppy resides in the Chocolate Swamp and is basically a pile of melting chocolate. Maweezy’s version of the character turns him into a warrior with a fierce chocolate weapon. Obviously.
The design is inventive and the execution is beautiful. Maweezy made the entire ensemble and had a little help with the chocolate bar weapon. The basic shape was carved from insulation foam. She covered the foam in Worbla and made the chocolate drips from InstaMorph moldable plastic. She also used that material to make the drips on the armor. You can see a couple in-progress pics below.
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.
