Be Inspired By These Cosplayers’ Progress

Kamui Cosplay progress

When you want to get into the cosplay scene, it can be intimidating to browse through pictures online — there are so many talented makers out there. Instead of worrying about never being “good enough,” get inspired. Don’t worry about what you can and can’t do when you start to build costumes, worry about what you can learn and try. The possibilities are endless and you can study and practice a variety of skills. Remember that everyone starts in relatively the same place and more experience means better results. Don’t let the idea of perfection hold you back.

If you’re in need of a costume boost, Kamui Cosplay has just the post for you. She shared a picture of her first costume in 2003 side by side with a costume she made in 2016. The comments on the images are filled with makers sharing similar progress pictures over the years and scrolling through them makes me want to cancel my weekend plans and stay in and create. We all learn. We all get better. Check out the post at 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, 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.
