Samus Aran’s varia suit is my favorite and only partially because it features several lighted components. Bryce Eden of Frostbite Cosplay constructed this especially cool version of the costume for Katy Anderson to wear at Fan Expo Dallas. Eden just built an updated version of the suit with a bigger budget. He used a model for reference and then constructed the armor pattern templates for paper. The paper segments — pictured below — were transferred to EVA foam. Eden combined that foam with a 3D printed arm cannon. He used green LED tape to add the glowing features.
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.
