• Lighted Armor

    For Burning Man 2013, I wanted to create a Glowing Warrior costume. This was based on a suit I had seen during BM2012. The project is only in v.1 as of now. It consists of a set of football pads, programmable LEDS, a custom controller board, and Lion batteries.
    For simple textiles, I'm using white nylon for light transmission and ease of clean-up.

October 25, 2013 - Tonight I got a chance to work at building and EL wired lab coat for FreakNight. Check it out!

August 16, 2013 - RGB BABY! Got the lights on the chest area done. Need the gauntlets now then only cloth and power supply left!

August 16, 2013 - Here we have the assembled hardware with the connecting arm cables. I think it is looking bad ass. I connected the bracers to the cables using ShapeLock plastic!

August 16, 2013 - For Burning man I'm working on a space/lighted/roman centurion costume. It is a modified football pads set, custum bracers, custom skirt/kilt, cape, and custom lighting control. Its going to be awesome. These pics show the hard equipment. The bracers were designed in Solidworks and milled on my CNC. Then in the oven for shaping and curving.
I'm kind of excited that on accident some bubbles formed. These should make for neat light patterns!
