Minana Cosplay has officially killed it on the “make awesome Warcraft armor” front. She crafted a Stormwind guard costume, and it’s painted and weathered to look like it’s seen action. She used black Worbla for all the armor pieces and used the foam sandwich technique. She put together a quick tutorial for making the hand armor that shows how she applied each piece of the Worbla armor to a glove using Velcro. It means each joint plate stays in place and gives her freedom of movement. The glove looks like an Isotoner but any close fitting glove would work. See how it works in the below picture:

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
