Heard of the manga Guyver? Neither had I until I saw this costume by durp001 on Reddit. It wins in the categories of costumes I’ve never seen before and quality construction. durp001 is an EVA foamsmith and it’s apparent in the finished costume and in in-progress photos. Except for the shoulders, he drafted the armor on his own (he used pepakura files for the shoulders). He combined the EVA foam with apoxy sculpt in some places (like the helmet) and incorporated electronics into the helmet to make the eyes light up. You can see them glow in this video.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
