Jeri Ellsworth with LED eyelashes by Diana Eng


At tonight’s traditional paella maker dinner at NYSCI in Queens, I spotted Jeri Ellsworth sporting some beautiful LED eyelashes (and necklace, and dress). Diana Eng was making magic with SMT LEDs on many people– I spotted MAKE editor Gareth Branwyn’s bald head covered in blue dots, and even Matt Richardson had an LED mustache. Ah, the fun that is Maker Faire… hope to see you there! I’ll be with the Dueling Mechanical Bulls by The Madagascar Institute (near the Diet Coke & Mentos stage).

  1. Thats pretty dang awesome. Love to learn the techniques for doing the eyelashes and skin mounted tech (SMT). I’ll guess the eyelashes built and then pasted on (ala false eyelashes)
    That would be an awesome kit for you to offer… I’d get a bunch of em for our Maui Source festival.

  2. Any idea if there are build instructions for LED eyelashes online somewhere?
