Adafruit community member Scott Bennett was inspired by Phil Burgess’s E-Demon Costume to make his own version for Halloween. The results are impressive — take a look at the documentation of his build! (Above are some real-world reactions to his costume, below is a video of the stripped down version running.)
I started with a Male Blank No Face Mask that I bought on Amazon. I used two of Adafruit’s 1.2″ blue 8×8 LED Matrices for the eyes and a set of three 1.2″ red 8×8 LED Matrices for the mouth. As in the tutorial, I hot glued the 3 mouth matrices together in a strip. The pressure of the outer mask tended to break the bonds and I ended up re-gluing one of the mouth matrices a couple of times. At first I hotglued the matrices to the mask but I found that wire worked much better….
And here’s Phil’s E-Demon!
