Meet a Princess Cumulus Costume #ElectronicHalloween

Zoey’s dad, a.k.a. YouTuber Visual Burrito, has been coming up with creative Halloween costumes for his daughter for the past few years. They always include some special electronics element — usually it’s LEDs. She’s been a glowing stick figure, a dazzling Elsa from Frozen, and now, she’s a storm cloud. Zoey works on the costumes with her dad, and this time they created Princess Cumulus together. They used a blow-up suit, digital LED strips, and a programmed Arduino to make Zoey look like a fierce storm. Make you watch the action in the above video.

And in case you’re wondering, they did realize this wasn’t the most practical option for trick or treating, so Zoe’s wearing a Wonder Woman costume for that activity.
