Add LED Eyes to your Face! #ElectronicHalloween #AdafruitLearningSystem

Leds hero close

Adding LED Eyes to your Halloween costume is a great way to upgrade its fear factor. This guide from our Learn System shows you how.

In this project we’ll use our small LED sequins to add lights to our face. These small LEDs are connected to a coin cell breakout board with a build-in on and off switch. We 3d printed a small enclosure and clip to attach the whole circuit to apparel!

This super easy project is great for Halloween or any character with glowing body parts. Perfect for cosplay events or even for safe night riding!

We used wire wrap to connect the LEDs because its thin and still has just enough strength for repeated use. We also tried using the ultra thin magnet wire. It definitely blends into skin better, making it basically invisible, but it will break after repeated use. You could try to strengthen it by doubling up and combining two wires together.
