Redditor mirbeartbh took their appreciation of Cuphead to a new level by making a costume of the game’s lead character for Albuquerque Comic Con. They spaced the build out and completed it a little at a time, which is usually less frustrating than saving everything to construct at once. They estimate the whole costume cost less than $100:
How much did I spend? Maybe 90-100. The glue I used was Barge Contact Cement($30) and I bought four packs of Eva foam from Walmart ($40) and then some upholstery foam ($16) And fabric which idk how much that was since my mom makes quilts and I already had it laying around.
The bottom of the shoe was EVA foam. I just sketched out the basic shape of it and cut it out. I glued an old shoe I didn’t use anymore in the middle of it . Then used a different shoe of the same size to trace onto upholstery foam, then traced the sole of cupheads shoe around it.
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.
