You don’t have to be a scientist to turn yourself into a pickle. Redditor CravendaleBeast knows the dill because they made a costume inspired by the already infamous Rick and Morty episode that sees Rick become a preserved cucumber. They didn’t brine about the crafting process; they just built the costume very quickly. They explain:
…it was all cut from an EVA foam sheet from polyprops with a template made for the dome and velcro running up the back behind the spine. Most of the rest was foam too, except for the brain which was bought on Ebay, and the leg brace was pvc pipe and wooden dowels. I was in a rush to complete and as such there where no fans so it got super hot, but I’m going to install some for the next outing in it as well as finishing off the laser/battery belt.

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.
