Horizon Zero Dawn Aloy Electronics with Trinket, LEDs, and More
Lightning Cosplay has been crafting a replica of Aloy’s shield weaver armor from the video game Horizon Zero Dawn. They’ve added extra electronic touches to the skirt portion of the costume using Adafruit products such as Trinket, LEDs, and a battery for Aloy’s power cells. They attached the electronics to power cells they sculpted and cast themselves. You can see how they assembled the pieces and incorporated them into the skirt in the above video.
