From the Forums: Color-changing Sleeping Beauty costume #WearableWednesday


Thank you to Teresa M Roberts for sharing her beautiful Sleeping Beauty costume with us in the Adafruit forums. She writes:

Hey Guys,

Just wanted you all to see the finished costume.

This dress is using Adafruit FX sound Board, and your 5v power booster. An aurduino 2560, six 3w high power RGB LEDs.
It changes from Pink to blue and at one point half the dress is pink and half is blue. (like the fairies are fighting over the color like in the movie. The fabric is Fiber Optic fabric (woven in the fabric) and the piping of the bodice is using 3mm side view fiber optic cable. Also bought my N-channel power MOSFET – 30V / 60A through you guys 🙂

The Dress has a sound (fairies talking) before the color changes.
Here is video of the dress on

Looks great!

Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board – WAV/OGG Trigger with 2MB Flash: Don’t get me wrong, I love the MP3 Music Maker shield, and our Wave Shield is a dependable classic. But you still need to get an Arduino involved. There’s all sorts of tricks with ISD chips or recordable greeting cards, but they never sound any good. So after a lot of engineering and tinkering we’ve come out with the Adafruit Sound Board, the fastest way to add audio effects to a project! We think this is the best sound board for props and costumes! Read more.
