Standing Out from the Crowd with an Elite Stormtrooper Costume
Cosplayers who are the among the first to complete a costume can claim a particular kind of pride. Simon Hitchins gets that with his First Order shadow elite stormtrooper costume. He hasn’t seen many others wear it yet. Instead of the more common white armor, this look is black with red touches — which make it look instantly cooler. The builder used action figures wearing the look for reference. Hitchins said the top half of the armor is pretty much done, but he has some adjustments to make.
I have a lot of fixing to do, filling gaps and re paint. Reference pics to this are scarce. In some pics the red lines are bigger. On the toy is how I’ve done it.
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.
