For Halloween, I am making a paper doll costume. It’ll make look part of my childhood play dream and for Halloween I wanted to have a very handmade costume feel. In my 5th grade specially, me along with my friends, really enjoyed making our own paper doll clothes that we would draw cut out. I even painted a shoebox and turned it into a closet for these paper outfits.
Now, I am excited to have lights that serve as its fancy edges. It’s also going to be my first time making a Halloween Costume and being part of a parade.
For the lights I chose :
What’s special about the Neo pixel strip is that it you can wrap it around the edges but it still glows in the front. It will have rainbow colors. Operate with a buttoned circuit with light movements like that of a bicycle light.
To make my costume I will also be using the following supplies :
- Foam Board
- Hot glue gun
- Acrylic paints
- Ribbon to tie myself or an elastic band with plastic cord locks
Also, after speaking with Becky and considering it’s Halloween and we will be out for a long time, I decided on two things :
- The outfit will have two parts. It allows for sitting.
- Make the outfit easy to take off in order to be able to use the bathroom or put on an extra later of clothing.
