Halloween 2011 – Glowing LED Oni Costume
So its Halloween…. Better plan all week, better plan all month, better plan all year……
Soft circuits LED oni costume in action. Sewn with conductive thread, LEDs slowly fade in and out and are controlled by an Lilypad Arduino and powered by a Lilypad LiPower supply. The dress will run for at least 11 hours continuously. It may run much longer than that, but I haven’t tested it for longer than 11 hours.
The earirngs are basically throwies (LEDs taped to a coin cell battery) with earring hooks attached with coat-weight thread. The necklace is four Lillypad LEDs wired with conductive thread in parallel to a coin cell battery.
