Cosmic Beat Dance Performance with EL Costumes #WearableWednesday

I wonder how many miles of EL wire the Wrecking Crew Orchestra uses in a year. Enjoy this “Cosmic Beat” dance performance!

EL wire starter pack – Aqua 2.5 meter (8.2 ft) – A little bundle to get you started! This project pack contains:

  • 2.5 meters (over 8 ft) of high-brightness, long-life EL wire in Aqua, the brightest and best looking EL color we carry. 2.5 meters is the maximum amount for the pocket driver – it is cut and soldered so it’s ready to go!
  • Pocket EL inverter runs on 2 AA Alkaline or rechargeable batteries (not included)
  • 2 inches of heat shink, both 1/8″ and 1/4″ for protecting the EL wire after soldering if you end up wanting to change the wire up
  • 2 inches of copper tape, used when soldering EL wire
  • 2 inches of foam tape, we use this to pad the inside of the inverter to quiet it down

We used this to make our awesome TRON bag

Soldering to EL wire is a little tricky but luckily we wrote a detailed step-by-step tutorial! You’ll need wire strippers, a soldering iron & solder, copper tape and heat shrink. A third-hand tool is really useful as well

  1. Ha ha ha. We buy our EL wire by the kilometer. I think its currently approximately 3km of blue EL wire and around 1.5 km of orange per year. We’re also experimenting with white and in limited performances lime green, but mainly blue and orange 🙂

    Happy Holidays 🙂
