Glue is often a hugely important part of maker projects, including crafting costumes. It’s helpful to get down to basics and look at key materials such as glue from time to time, and to that end, YouTuber Wayne’s Workshop gives an overview of three popular adhesives used for cosplay in a recent video. He discusses the ins and outs of hot glue (my personal favorite), contact glue, and super glue. If you want to weigh the pros and cons of each, this is the video you’ve been looking for.
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.
