Constellation Skirt #ElectronicHalloween #WearableWednesday

FUVWMVNHLZRQW9S.LARGE

Inspired by Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus– the beautiful constellation skirt! BelleLindsay on Instructables writes:

I’m a huge fan of Ms. Frizzle from the Magic School Bus series, an astronomy enthusiast, and a woman fascinated with e-textiles. I thought I should combine the three, creating a constellation dress to wear to Dragon Con 2013. I started working on ideas for the skirt back in November, when I planned to work with existing light strands. After deciding that I couldn’t customize distances between the stars and knowing some -very- basic circuitry, I started researching e-textiles. The conductive thread I tested oxidized after about three months, and I wanted this skirt to last for years, so I decided to use ribbon cable, which gave me both cost-effectiveness and flexibility.
