Cosplayer Team Fuu added a special touch to the axe she made for her Destiny Awoken Warlock costume. She drafted a pattern and after constructing it from EVA foam and a dowel rod. She incorporated a glowing element to the axe by using a light and a microcontroller from Adafruit. She explains:
This axe is my favorite prop to date, it lights up with a flickering inner flame, and breaks down into several pieces for easy transport. The axe head is insulation foam coated in epsilon with lights and a micro controller from adafruit, and then pvc pipe and eva foam for the details.The armor is eva foam and platsidip with sintra details, the coat is from a pattern I drafted specifically for this, base wig is from Arda.
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.
