This Gundam Unicorn Costume Wouldn’t Fit Through Most Doors

Cosplayer Theredcomet has done it. He’s brought a Gundam Unicorn Sinanju costume to life. He took three to four days to 3D model the entire suit in Maya. To get it just right, he used references from a decal guide. He transferred the model to Pepakura in order to make templates for the complex armor and traced those templates onto foam. It involved cutting a lot of small pieces and parts; Theredcomet said it felt like 9,000. You can take a look at the Pepakura model below to get an idea of the number of pieces involved and then see a bit of how the costume evolved.

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.
