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!
