Turning Toothless the Dragon Into a Wearable Helmet
Adapting a Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon into a costume can be handled a few different ways, and I’ve highlighted a few in the past. You can make an entire dragon that you can operate from the inside like a puppet, you can sew a fabric outfit like a kigurumi, or you can build armor for a humanized Toothless. KP Cosplay did the latter when she made a Toothless helmet. The above video details her process for using EVA foam, black Worbla, and other basic supplies to become a dragon.
This timelapse is a quick overview of the process:
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
