Turning yourself into a purple sea witch isn’t a simple task. Redditor LunaLyrik invested over 200 hours into her steampunk Ursula costume so far and estimates she has 50-100 hours to go to achieve perfection. She said the Ursula cosplay is only the third time she’s made a costume from scratch, and it’s first time ever working with lights (which she added to her hat, hair, and magic shell) and paint special effects. She’s making the costume for the cosplay competition at TwitchCon in October. She says:
I used a ton of UV lights all over the costume, I have light strip, light strands, and individual little lamps too!
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.
