YouTuber and maker WexyLex is going huge for her next costume. She’s crafting a life-sized Jiralhanae, a.k.a. Brute, from Halo 2. She started the build for the giant alien in May 2017 and has been chugging along ever since. She’s been posting updates on her YouTube channel, and the Brute gets bigger and more polished over time. Watch the above video to get an intro to the project and the below video to see the latest update.
Keep up with the crafting of the costume on YouTube.

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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.

I wasn’t alone on this project! I was also accompanied by LostVikingProps (aka Gabe Schulz) on this endeavor!
We took it to PAX West and had a blast! We’re taking it to Rose City Comic Con this weekend and are entering a costume competition! Wish us luck!
