Here’s one of my favorite Electronic Halloween guides from last year! Fun Flora Neopixel Project with a stunning outcome…
Wear some space on your face and be a constellation for Halloween! This galaxy makeup is inspired by the Cassiopeia constellation and uses five FLORA NeoPixels to light up the night sky across your forehead, affixed with liquid latex. GEMMA and a coincell battery back reside on a hair clip and run the pixels in any color you choose.
This guide will show you how to create the circuit and apply a colorful galaxy makeup effect that will be a sure hit at your party or costume parade.
You will need:
- GEMMA board
- Five FLORA NeoPixels
- Coincell battery holder and two CR2032 batteries
- Thin wire
- Wire strippers, flush snips, and tweezers
- Soldering iron and solder
- E6000 craft glue
- Liquid latex and sponge applicators
- Various colorful purple, pink, and blue eyeshadows and brushes
- Loose makeup glitter
- Black eyeliner
- False eyelashes and mascara
