‘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.
