Chimeral Cosplay Art is going all in on a Mastarius build from Aion. She’s only about fifty percent through, but it’s already looking so detailed that I wanted to share it. She had a hard time choosing which skin to go with, but she figured it out. You can see many of the costume pieces laid out in the above picture. She’s already poured around 75 hours into the costume, and she still needs to work on the wig, the sword, the feathers on the shoulder armor, the corset, shoes, pants, and a belt. Whew.
She used the thermoplastic Thibra for the hard armor pieces. She says it’s harder for her to use Thibra in comparison to Worbla, but it’s ultimately smoother. You can get a better look at some components in the progress pictures below. Pay particular attention to the wrist gauntlet. She hand embroidered the thread details and used gold leather for the trim.

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.
