Adafruit halloween2014 blog 600x251

That’s right folks – there’s still time to make an awesome project for #ElectronicHalloween! Check out some of our favorite Halloween projects below. And don’t forget, expedited orders are guaranteed to ship same day if placed before the 11am EST cut-off time.


Tron Hoodie

EL wire speed project! Are you looking for a last minute Halloween costume that looks like it took forever? Try building a TRON hoodie with EL wire! With just a bit of stitching (and no soldering!) you can make a lovely accented hoodie that will look cool, keep you warm and also make you more visible while trick-or-treating! Full tutorial


Superhero Power Plant

Inspired by Iron Man’s Arc Reactor! Planning an epic Iron Man costume for Halloween or Comic Con, or looking for that iconic piece that turns a plain t-shirt into Tony Stark? Look no further, for in this guide we’ll show you how to make your own electronic glowing reactor with a cool pulsing effect. You can even customize it once complete, go for red, purple, green, pink: Whatever color will power you up! Or change the pulse rate or effects to add a special touch. Full tutorial


LED Masquerade Masks

Light up the party! Got a costume ball coming up? Learn to adorn masquerade masks with LEDs, three ways! This guide will show you how to make three masks at different difficulty levels. Full tutorial


Daft Punk Helmet

Since I don’t have a 3D printer big enough to print an entire Daft Punk helmet, and I don’t have a lot of cash to spend on Halloween this year, I elected to make the poor man’s version. Full tutorial


Trinket / Gemma Blinky Eyes

NewImage

Spook up your Halloween item with Blinky Eyes! This project adapts the original code for use on the faster ATTiny85 processor and for the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE). It also adds a Cadmium Sulfide (CdS) photocell to allow the eyes to come on only below a certain light level. During sunlight, this will save battery power. Full tutorial


Random Spooky LED Eyes

This is an easy project that requires no soldering and only takes a few minutes to put together. WIth a strand of digital led pixels and an Arduino, you can create 12 pairs of creepy eyes, randomly blinking from behind a dark window or in the bushes. Full tutorial


Audio FX Remote Control

Press a button, make a sound. The Adafruit Audio FX Sound Board makes custom audio projects as easy as they can be! Sometimes, press a button, make a sound over there would be just the thing. This project shows how to add a wireless remote control to the Audio FX Board. It’s great for Halloween pranks, cosplay outfits and other shenanigans, or maybe you want to design the whoopee cushion of the future. Full tutorial


Laser Dog Goggles

Dress your dog up for Halloween! This project mods a pair of Doggles brand dog goggles with a swiveling laser diode for targeting all those ghouls and goblins lurking near ground level. While this is a fairly simple electronics project suitable for intrepid novices, there are a few common sense safety considerations to keep in mind throughout. Full tutorial


EL Wire Animal Masks


If you’re looking for an easy, fun, and glowing Halloween costume this year, read on to learn how to make an animal mask with EL wire on a bike helmet. We were inspired by Tom Newsom’s Glownimals project over in the UK, which he showed off at Elephant and Castle Mini Maker Faire last summer. Full tutorial


Mystical LED Halloween Hood

Create glowing eyes for your costume! This project is ideal for any character with glowing eyes, like the Black Mage from Final Fantasy, Jawa from Star Wars, or Orko from He-Man. Two NeoPixel Jewels can appear any color or animating pattern, and they are driven by a GEMMA microcontroller powered by a 500mAh lipoly battery in a 3D printed pocket. Full tutorial


3D Printed LED Fire Horns

A perfect combination for making great things! These fire horns are 3d printed in Ninjaflex for a flexible wearable that won’t poke your eyes out, giving you freedom to headbang to your hearts desire. As a hollowed out shell, you can easily to fit a strip or ring of LEDs inside these devilish horns for making an epic LED costume. We have 3 different types of horns, so you can pick the one that matches your style. Full tutorial
