Dr. Strange Spell Disks (Costuming Props)

by joshuakane on Sat Aug 18, 2018 8:14 am

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share something that I made that I thought folks here would appreciate.

In the Movie Dr. Strange, when the characters invoke spells, there are some pretty amazing CGI effects that take place.

I wanted to see if I could attempt to replicate it with a practical effect. Working with some friends, I believe we have come pretty close, all of it is powered by some pretty nifty Adafruit products.

To complete this I purchased the following items

]Adafruit Pro Trinket - 5V 16MHz
Adafruit NeoPixel Digital RGB LED Strip 144 LED - 1m Black - BLACK
4-pin JST SM Plug + Receptacle Cable Set
16mm Panel Mount Momentary Pushbutton - Black

I also modified and printed the following Box Enclosure for the Trinket Pro from Thingiverse

My friend helped me laser cut the Spell Mandala

This is how the project box and Trinket looked when they were completed
