Of all the Game of Thrones characters I see cosplayed, Varys of Lys isn’t often among them. The character, known as The Spider, has played a key role throughout the HBO series, and he wears robes that look quite comfortable. Cosplayer Mnamna recently tackled a Varys ensemble, and it was his first project that involved quite a bit of machine sewing. He referenced a pattern for the robe created by Lauren Orton and assembled and sewed the robes from the ground up. Mnamna noted Varys had different decorations on his belt and sculpted them all from clay, made molds, and cast the finished pieces from Worbla. You can see a couple making of photos 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.
