A number of characters in the Star Wars universe wear helmets — particularly bounty hunters and or Mandalorians. Cosplayer Savanna Kiefer is working on a costume for Sabine Wren of Star Wars Rebels, and she decided to create videos to show the process of prepping and then painting the helmet. The helmet was a kit by Ruthless FX, and it only required a little clean up with Bondo and sandpaper. Watch the above video to learn how to prep the helmet for painting and the below video for an overview of the initial painting steps:
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.
