NEW GUIDE: Holiday Reindeer Mask using Hallowing #Hallowing #CircuitPython #RudolphCosplay
This guide shows you how to build your own Holiday reindeer mask.
This requires a mask that you’re willing to modify and outfit with some electronics, resulting in a “living” mask, great for display, a holiday party, or for a spooky Halloween costume.
This project is based around two Hallowing boards that create the synchronized eyes that blink and look around. The Adafruit Hallowing is a skull-shaped ATSAMD21 board with a ton of extras built in to make for an adorable wearable, badge, development kit, or the engine for your next cosplay or prop. On the front is a cute 1.44″ sized 128×128 full color TFT. By default it displays a spooky eye but you can use it for anything you’d like to display in glorious color.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
