Complete your cosplay with this Magical Item: a floating fireball that flares up at your command. Whether you're portraying Kael'thas Sunstrider from WoW or trading flaming shots with Super Mario and Luigi, this fireball will push your outfit over the top.

This is a very easy project, with no soldering required. The Circuit Playground board makes motion-sensing programmable lights a snap. Customize your colors and your animation speed with Microsoft MakeCode's drag-and-drop code editor. You'll be stopped for so many photos that you'll never make it to that panel discussion at DragonCon.

This project was inspired by late-night browsing on Etsy, where a lot of creative makers have similar products. What makes this one special is the ability to customize your own light colors and flame colors, as well as the motion-sensitive flare up!
