We love this awesome Halloween LED dress inspired by Katy Perry and shared it on the blog earlier this week. Check out more about the project here! Thanks so much to Scott for sending it in.

When I asked my daughter what she wanted to be on Halloween she said she wanted to have an LED dress like Katy Perry. After some discussion, it seemed that we’d need a white dress that both diffused but didn’t block too much of the light from LEDs underneath. We’d need some way to mount the LEDs without needing to alter the dress itself (since we planned to use it for other occasions). So we focused on getting a light colored slip she could wear underneath on which the LEDs would be attached. To complement the outfit, she wanted a blue wig. The dress, slip, and wig we used were: White Chiffon Dress (~$30) White Slip (~$15) Blue Wig (~$15) The next part of the design was to decide on the best way to place LEDs.
