  1. This looks great. I continue to work on a tiara for my granddaughter. The circuit is the same as I used in my Twinkling Daffodils (as seen on Show and Tell and Wearable Wednesday). I am trying to use a real tiara as opposed to a constructed one (she’s 5, and is very happy with just the tiara sans neopixels). I’m having real trouble finding an appropriate tiara. The best I found was metal, and that adds conductive complexity. I asked about this in another post, and Becky shamed me, saying I didn’t look hard enough. I have been to multiple stores–the selection is somewhat limited since I do not live in an urban area, and have scoured the web. In fact the two versions I have bought–the metal ones and some plastic ones, were ordered on-line.

    The problem now is having multiple pieces for a 5-year-old to manage. I have decided to sew the neopixels and Gemma, using non-conductive thread, to the plastic tiara. That may work, but the CR2032 battery pack is too bulky. I have ordered some CR1220 battery holders will add a small switch. I hope to be able to package that compactly enough to be able to fix it to the tiara so she can just switch it on then wear it worry free.

    hey Virgil, I used a website to get my tiara base printed with a local 3D printer. I had never done any 3d printing before but the whole experience was very easy. I think I’d consider trying to make my own file next time just for fun. Maybe you should try that if you want something specific.

    It was very affordable, too: I paid $9. I believe I could’ve just paid a little extra for shipping if needed. I’m not affiliated with 3dhubs.com at all but check it out!

    Good luck!
