Steven Scott took home first place at BlizzCon’s costume contest this year. He wore an impressive Grommash Hellscream ensemble at the event, and it was built by Mike Biasi. He spent months working on the massive costume inspired by one of the chief advisors for the Horde in World of Warcraft. He sculpted every piece of the build from scratch from the head, to the belt buckle, to the armor, to the upper torso — it looks like he used chavant modeling clay. The texture and finish on the skin is spot on transculent and realistic, for an orc. You can see a couple of in-progress pictures below.
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.
