Putting together a Spider-Man costume isn’t straightforward. Even if you opt to order a suit rather than painting a bodysuit you already have or getting fabric printed, you have to be precise with measurements. Once you have the suit, you usually have to figure out how to build in shoes and how to add eye lenses. If the process seems daunting to you, don’t worry because Vegan Spider-Man goes through all these subjects in his tutorial videos. Start with the video above to learn how to take your measurements before you order a suit, and then keep learning with the below how-to videos.
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.
