Making a Snowboard Suit into a Snowspeeder Pilot’s Suit
Skiing can be an occasion for cosplay, just ask Redditor HaNDiCaPZaCH. He’s a snowboarder and traded in his standard suit for one that resembles that of a rebel pilot’s in Star Wars. He specifically modeled it on Luke Skywalker’s snowspeeder jumpsuit in The Empire Strikes Back. He took four and a half years to find and make everything, and I appreciate that he even transformed his helmet. Let this be inspiration to help you find all sorts of excuses to make a costume.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
