Making masks and costumes based on characters from film is a tale as old as time. Prop makers El Taller Factory got extra enchanting when they made a replica of the Beast’s make from the recent live-action Beauty and the Beast. It started with a sculpt that they refined until it looked like the Disney character. They added hair in small groups and punched the roots in my hand. Oh, and of course they fashioned the horns by hand and the full costume. The above timelapse video shows the intense amount of work that went into getting the costume right.
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.
