Instructables user ObiWanJacobi took an ordinary mechanic jumpsuit and made it ready for a party by adding a RGB LED strip. He shared how he incorporated the lighting on Instructables, and you can use the instructions to affix the LED strip to other materials. To configure the Arduino board, he says:
The TMP Sensor is going to be attached to the board with the flat face facing outwards away from the board. The left leg will be attached to the ground pin, and the right leg into the 3.3V pin. The middle pin will have a female-to-male pin attached, with the male side going into the A0 pin.
The LED strip’s wires will be attaching to the Arduino as well. The green wire will be attaching to the A13 Pin, the ground wire (black) will be attaching to the second ground pin on the Arduino, and the power (red) wire will be attaching to the 5V pin on the Arduino.
Attach the 9-Volt connector to the Arduino as well.
