Halloween Costume Ideas

 

I will be on a team of 1 to complete my halloween costume. I have 3 ideas that I have sketched:

My first idea is to design a lit up fringe turtleneck top reminiscent of the 1960s go-go era. I want to sew on the fringe elements under the arms of the sleeves and on some of the fringes put some neopixel leds. I want to leds to gradually glow.

My second idea is to design a halo crown similar to the one Beyonce wore when she announced her second pregnancy to the world and preformed. I would drill holes in a headband and put the  golden sticks inside. Before that I would attach yellow leds to each stick.

My last idea is a pair of pirate pants that would alternate strips of yellow and green led lights. I would attach stips of that fabric to the pants and then neopixel leds to the strips.

  1. Fun ideas, Victoria! Are you leaning towards one or another? I’d encourage you to imagine what the costume might look like from a distance, in low lighting. The crown might appear as points of light– is that your intention? Here’s a neat laser-cut crown that uses edge-lit acrylic: https://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Crown/

    For your fringe idea, you might look at side-emitting NeoPixel strip, but it is sorta fragile. https://www.adafruit.com/?q=side%20neopixel As an alternative look at this more durable strip: https://www.adafruit.com/product/3630
