We’re not halfway through September, but it’s not too early to start considering your plans for Halloween. Maybe this is the year you want to try to apply prosthetics and scary makeup to go with your costume. If that’s the case, YouTuber Ellimacs SFX, a.k.a. Ellinor Rosander and Macs Moser, has your back. They have a plethora of how-tos going over makeup from the enchanting to the extreme — like this Pan’s Labyrinth look. The Pale Man makeup tutorial goes over how to create the weirdly shaped head, the eyes in the palms of the heads, and more.
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.
