Look at All Your Halloween Costumes

It’s October 31 and that means it’s costume central. Whether you’re wrapping up your work day or getting ready to head to a party or out trick or treating, you’re likely in costume or at least near someone who is. The Adafruit community got as creative as ever when it came to using electronics and 3D printing to enhance and embellish their costumes. I’ve rounded up costume projects from the community shared on social media, and I’m impressed. You’re all awesome makers!

Above, Lisha used NeoPixels to illuminate an anime character’s fireball for her daughter.

Bill 3D printed the idol and the Eye of Ra to complete his adventurous Indiana Jones costume.

Gella made this stunning LED headpiece with NeoPixels.

Geek Mom Projects crafted an incredible dress using Circuit Playground.

Lesley incorporated a light-up skirt in her Steven Universe Rose Quartz costume.

Look at Sebastian’s awesome Ghostbusters Proton Pack!

David went Daft Punk with his ensemble.


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.
