Rodolfo Brosch made a Thor costume for Bitte Karlsen and spared no detail in making the metallic looking armor from pink foam. He started by taking a plastic wrap mold of his friend’s head and constructing the base of Thor’s helm (which you can see below). With the pieces cut for assembly, he carved the detailed patterns into the surface before a finishing process that looks complex — he must have gone through a few layers of painting to achieve the brushed metal appearance.
See more making of photos in this album — it really goes step by step.
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.
