Scale mail (or scale maille) bras don’t have to be heavy, uncomfortable affairs. La Forja de Moguri has shared a tutorial showing how you can transform an everyday bra (it would probably be a good idea to buy a cheap one) into what looks like a metallic bikini top. The trick? Lots of tiny scales. You could make them from EVA or craft foam — the material just needs to have a little flexibility so it can curve when it’s layered. Then, you attach the scales in layers to the bra cups before applying black acrylic paint all over. You can see a couple in progress pictures below.
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.
