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.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
