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:
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.
