Ratchet Costume with an Animatronic Clank

ratchet-and-clank-costume

Imgur user SaraWinters decided to dress as both Ratchet and Clank. Why be one character when you can be two simultaneously? The Ratchet costume is a single piece while Clank straps onto his back. Clank is a puppet, and Sara constructed it so she can control Clank’s head with her right hand. She also designed Ratchet’s tail so it would twitch and curl with the pull of a cable. She said:

The only things NOT made from scratch are the wrench (my boyfriend gave me one of the promotional foam ones from the Tools of Destruction era and I went to town on it to remake it as the modern wrench including a lot of sanding and a new paint job) and the gloves from the palm down. I could have made them completely from scratch but I found a pair of welding gloves for $5. The wrist-to elbow portion is mine.

Yes the shoes are custom. They’re not boot covers.

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.
