Magic: The Gathering’s Chandra is all about pyromancy. Fire spells are her specialty, so it’s only appropriate that her hair is fiery. Cosplayer Chuel Cosplay made a costume based on the art of the character depicted on Magic cards and went the extra mile to replica the nature of Chandra’s hair — which you can see a close-up of below. She used electronics like LEDs and an Arduino to amp up the effect:
The hair was made with PETG plastic and painted with window/glass paint. Added also leds and arduino to fade them at different times so it resembled fire.
And had a small smoke machine hidden in the arm guard that i made with a vaper and a air pump.
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.
