It’s not easy to cosplay an alien. The effort usually requires a little extra work in the makeup and prosthetic department. Cosplay Amber Brite has experience crafting add-ons like lekku or headtails from the Star Wars universe. She recently applied those skills to making the headdress for an Ahsoka Tano costume. Ahsoka’s a Torgrutan and their headtails are different than that of Twi’leks. Amber, also known as Firelight Cosplay, made a mock design first before sculpting (you can see that picture below) the tails and then making the mold and casting them.
She attached the four different pieces together after casting them with glue and then painted on the stripes by hand.
See more photos of the Ahsoka costume in progress at Facebook and shop for props made by Amber at her website.
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.
