Lieutenant Allison Jakes Cosplay Using Adafruit LEDs

Lieutenant Allison Jakes costume 1

The tabletop game Warmachine features a ton of cool steampunk-inspired miniatures and characters such as Lieutenant Allison Jakes. Cosplayer Allie Rose-Marie Leost, a.k.a. AllieCat Art and Cosplay, is working on a set of armor based on that character and is building it from transparent vinyl, foam, Worbla, and blue and white LEDs from Adafruit. She used the LEDs in both the sword, backpack, and breastplate. She mentioned using Adafruit’s LEDs saved her “so much time on wiring LED’s for Allison” so she could focus more on painting and sewing.

She incorporated them nicely into the above sword, and it turns out this is the first sword she’s made.
