‘Snowfall Dress’ with 440 NeoPixels Animates Falling Snow, Color Fading Patterns #WearableWednesday

We love how what starts with a question leads to a successful project for an event or installation! In this case The Crafty Avenger asked a simple question, “what board to use?” to control 440 NeoPixels. The answer was simple: Flora. And thus the ‘Snowfall Dress’ was made!

This dress is meant for a stilt walker or performer in a large crinoline. We are testing the snowfall pattern in this video.

I used about 440 WS2812b LEDs + one 100foot string of fairy lights to create this dress. I used a Flora Board to control it and 4 large batteries to power it. Not lite by any means but bright and pretty for a good long time.

This dress was designed to run a snowfall pattern for a snow queen costume. The design of the LED set up was designed to be reprogrammed and flexible. This is the test for the color diffusion.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
