A great project by Epbot that was an accessory for the Junk Lady cosplay – but it’s just as applicable for anyone who simply wants to mod a fairy-in-a-jar for any costume!
Sure, fairies in the Labyrinth are pests, and Hoggle delights in spraying them, but I figure maybe he captured a baby one for Sarah. Or he just likes tormenting them. Whatever. The point is, I really just wanted to make a fairy jar.
This quick craft is really more of a quick mod, since you’ll need one of those “animated butterfly jars” that were all the rage at Cracker Barrel last year
This thing has great lifelike movement:
The life-like motion on these things is INSANE, as you just saw in my video. And since you can only see the hair-thin wire operating it against a bright white backdrop, it really does seem to operate on magic.
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.
