Shawn, a.k.a. Dynamite Webber Cosplay, is known for his Nightwing costume. He does a spot on take on Dick Grayson that features multiple textures and armor. He recently shared a build post on Facebook and talks about getting a base zentai suit and having a friend sew it together. He says:
I knew I wanted to mimick the texture of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit. So I bought some puff paint (tulip brand, metallic black) and got to work painstakingly painting every little dash into my suit using reference photos from the batsuit and following the pattern already printed on the suit. While I was doing this I had the suit on my mannequin so the fabric was stretched. I would paint and good portion then use my heat gun to dry it some before moving on (keep that heat gun moving. Don’t burn your fabric!)
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.
