Light-Up Elsa Halloween Costume #ElectronicHalloween

Remember Glowy Zoey? Last Halloween, the little girl wore a LED stick figure costume shaped like Minnie Mouse. It was incredibly adorable to watch her run around. This time, Zoey has gone Frozen. She wanted to dress as Elsa this Halloween, and the result is beautiful and cute. Royce Hutain made it happen with an existing dress and a lot of LEDs. He explains:

“This year Zoey wanted to be Elsa so of course I had to light it up! I also decided to add lights to her frozen jeep that Santa paid so much for…I mean that Santa made her for Christmas last year. Her dress has 250 LEDs that are controlled with a Teensy 3.1 microcontroller and powered by 2 13000mah 5v powerbanks (usually used to charge cellphones). Her dress was bought at the Disney store because I sure as heck can’t sew! Her jeep is lined with the same lights we use on our LED suits and the flashing mode is controlled by one of our LED suit controllers as well. The headlights were made from LED ring lights.”
