Heroes of the Storm Nova Cosplay with NeoPixel LED Ponytail
Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, is in the assembly test phase for her newest project: Nova from Heroes of the Storm. She’s using Adafruit projects in this build, including NeoPixels and LED strips. Like she put it, “You can never have too many LEDs.” Besides all the electronics in the armor, she even found a way to incorporate LEDs into the ponytail for the costume.
This video shows off the test assembly and LEDs in action.
You can get a look at the bodysuit in the picture below. She said:
The base was a pattern from @nathandeluca , which Benni and I completely reshaped since it had male measurements. Benni also made the design of Nova for the fabric print and I sewed it together afterwards. Oh and invisible zippers on stretch fabric are awful – or I need to practice more. The print was from @bagsofloveuk , which I can highly recommend for all kind of fabric prints!

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.
