Light up glitter heels with FLORA and NeoPixels #WearableWednesday

NewImage

Awesome Instructable from denahemerson on how to make glittery light up heels! We would wear these to our company Christmas party in a heartbeat.

First things first, these are not Dorothy’s shoes. Dorothy snatched them off the cold, dead feet of the Wicked Witch of the East. The same dead witch that, oh yeah, Dorothy maliciously murdered upon her dramatic arrival into Munchkinland. If we’re about to commence this journey of creating fabulous things together, I want that made abundantly clear.

Now, who wants to make glittery, sparkly, light up heels??

You will need:

Tools:

  • X-acto knife
  • Paint brush
  • Needles (many)

Bonus:

See the full tutorial here.

Flora RGB Smart NeoPixel version 2 – Pack of 4: What’s a wearable project without LEDs? Our favorite part of the Flora platform is these tiny smart pixels. Designed specifically for wearables, these updated Flora NeoPixels have ultra-cool technology: these ultra-bright LEDs have a constant-current driver cooked right into the LED package! The pixels are chainable – so you only need 1 pin/wire to control as many LEDs as you like. They’re easy to sew, and the chainable design means no crossed threads. Read more.
