Kamui Cosplay’s Finished Heroes of the Storm Nova Costume
Sometimes we don’t start the right projects at the right times. For example, Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, began a Heroes of the Storm Nova costume in 2015. She put it aside though because she couldn’t get the ponytail to match the character’s quite the way she wanted. But she returned to the Nova ensemble in 2017 and used her electronics skills (including using product from Adafruit) to revamp and complete the costume. It looks absolutely next level. She’ll be wearing the costume at the upcoming BlizzCon.

If you’d like to get details on how to use electronics like Kamui Cosplay did in her Nova costume, she has a new book to guide you through it: Advanced Lights – Animated LEDs. You can purchase a print or digital copy at her website.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
