Jar Jar Binks Costume Modified from a Collectible Statue
Life size prop statues don’t only have to be used for display. If you come across one on clearance or at a thrift sale of some kind, you can disassemble it for parts and use it as a costume. That’s what Kyle Lusignan did for his Jar Jar Binks ensemble. He got the statue from a friend (it’s like this one) and turned it into a wearable costume. He used the clothes from the statue and paired them with Gungan skin from the statue and a mask — he sees through the mouth of the mask. It’s creative, and as you don’t see many Jar Jar costumes, unique.

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.
