RWBY’s Ruby Rose carries an impressive scythe that it is also a high caliber sniper rifle; it’s called Crescent Rose. When cosplayer Mangoloo, one half of Labinnak and Mangoloo Cosplays/L&MC, made her Ruby Rose ensemble, she fully committed to crafting Crescent Rose. She traced the shape onto paper and designed a mechanism so the scythe would transform using a spring loaded base. At around six feet tall and four feet wide (when fully extended), the weapon is massive and not light — that makes the mechanism that much more notable.
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.
