NeoPixels for Fauxhawks and Other Hair Fun #WearableWednesday

So, Halloween is coming and you aren’t really the costume type. Why not try something a little more undercover and less sweaty—a NeoPixel ‘do. Molly Nicholas weaves pixels through her hair and adds some programming with a Tiny Lily microcontroller, a Tiny Lily Battery adapter and a LiPoly battery. This is an easy project, and coated ribbon wire means you don’t have to worry about shorting the circuit with your skin. You can also substitute our Gemma microcontroller for this project; it’s just a tad bigger, but you don’t need the battery adapter. Check out her Instructable for more dets.

If you want to whip up a quick hair bow with a ghostly theme, check out our Candle Flicker LED Bow guide. It’s a great first project using traditional LEDs and conductive thread—no programming required. It would look great done in black or grey ribbon with some lace overlay. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!


Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
