It’s showtime synergy with Jem and the Hologram DIY earrings. via instructables
Truly, truly, truly outrageous. If you grew up in the 80’s, most likely you know and love Jem and the Holograms. The cartoon series that starred Jerrica and her secret rockstar identity Jem. Along with her bandmates, The Holograms and Synergy a holographic computer designed to be the ultimate audio/visual entertainment synthesizer. As you can see, the cartoon was nothing short of amazing.
There is a movie coming out, but from the look of it, it doesn’t do much to honor the 80’s series, or it’s creator Christy Marx. In my opinion it’s truly a missed opportunity for an outrageous, synthed out, near future movie with great fashion, music and kick-ass females. However, it has sparked an interest in Jem again and have reminded my generation just how cool the color pink can be. So, as a small homage I have created Jem’s star earrings that blink and twinkle when pressed.
