Once you make a quality costume, there’s no reason to put it away in a closet after you’ve worn it once. Costumes can be worn again and again with care. Case in point: Laura Jansen’s, a.k.a. Lightning Cosplay, Diablo III Maghda costume. She made her Maghda costume a couple years ago, and it’s still looking great. The character’s a witch in the video game and wears an elaborate headpiece.
Lightning Cosplay made a form for the horns from expanding foam and KobraCast and sewed the fabric covers to fit over them. For the finishing touches, she sewed on a ton of baby pearls by hand and made 140 triangle spikes from Worbla and painted them with a metallic finish before attaching them. You can see the progress in the below photos.

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.
