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.

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.
