Sony PlayStation’s role-playing game Horizon Zero Dawn won’t be out until 2017, but the company has released enough images that cosplayers are tackling ensembles inspired by the lead character in the game. Anne Torstensen, a.k.a. Ibelinn Cosplay, put together a costume based on Aloy — she’s a hunter and archer who is the lead character in the video game. Anne says:
I loved her design from the moment I saw her, and wanted to replicate her as closely as possible. I followed the guide with most of the right materials except for the shirt and skirt leather parts, almost everything is hand sewn exept for parts of the undershirt. Armor is made out of black worbla, fur is from reindeer.
It’s not quite done yet as I still miss some details on the outfit (skirt and necklaces), and I will continue to make both the spear and bow that she has.
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.
