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.
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.
