League of Legends has about a million characters, as we’ve discussed before, and I’ve come across what I believe is another one that is new to me — Diana. Marta, a.k.a. Calypsen Cosplay, made a costume based on Diana’s classic skin in the game. She styled the wig, replicated the makeup, made Diana’s giant crescent blade, and crafted the armor. The armor pieces are made from different thicknesses of EVA foam, a cut off section from a female mannequin, and then lots of wood glue and paint. The shoulders in particular are complex.
You can see some in progress pictures below and more are available on Facebook.

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.
