On Saturday, August 13, 2022 we will be working on the Adafruit Customer Support Forums. If you visit over the weekend and things are not complete yet, please check back later, https://adafruit.com/forumupdates
Redditor Itty_Bitty_Rawrz finished her first costume and completed her ensemble with an impressive accessory — a motorcycle. She dressed as Celty from Durarara and made the character’s helmet and scythe. Here’s how she modified an existing helmet to make it more closely match Celty’s:
But as far the craft portion.. Pulled all the extra vents.. Filled it in with clay.. Sanded everything.. Measured out the foam board by using tin foil for the curve, hot glued the crap out of the foam board to each piece.. Clay molded it to the helm as well so both clay and glue to adhere it… Made a separate stencil for the S.. Then spray painted everything… Fin.
Oh and TONS of sanding… Lol stupid clay. Had to mess with that the most so it wouldn’t be so heavy hehe. But that foam board is a God send and pretty sturdy.
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.
