Cyberpunk Cyborg

Photographed by Mike Vickers

I enjoy dressing up as much as the next pod, but I especially enjoy checking out people who actually knowing what they’re doing. Melissa’s sci-fantastic build, in her own words:
“The process was a lot of fun and took approximately 3 months of on-and-off planning and building. The assembly is made from over 60 parts designed in Solidworks and sewn/cut/glued/laser-cut/heat-formed using various techniques.The costume includes color changing LEDs on the spine and front that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller and onboard RGB controllers (respectively), and is powered by 16 AA batteries, 1 LiPo rechargeable battery, two 2032 coin cells, and one 9-volt battery. In total there’s more than 70 LED’s on the entire costume and over 60 parts.
