Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, crafted a Xena: Warrior Princess costume last fall and had a lot of fun becoming the character. We previously showed off some photos of her finished ensemble — she did a fantastic job with crafting the armor and aging and weathering it. She looks like she’s been wearing it for years and participated in more than a few battles. Anyway, Kamui put together a making of video that goes over how she crafted the armor, Xena’s sword (she uses Black Worbla), her complex leather skirt, and the chakram.
You can see more of Kamui’s detailed how-to videos at YouTube.
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.
