This super detailed light-up Star Guardian Urgot costume was sent in by Leah! She wrote:

Star Guardian Urgot
from League of Legends! I wore this to Anime Expo in LA last weekend and had
a BLAST! I learned so much about the capabilities of Arduino boards and
Neopixels, and thanks to this build I am so much more confident in coding!
For Urgot I used an Arduino Uno, and 2 Trinkets to power about 200 RGB Leds.
(I had planned to use 3 trinkets, but one of them literally blew away in a
windstorm

Urgot has 6 Neopixel Jewels and about 5M of strips on his
body! Everything was powered by portable 5V cell phone chargers that I hid
throughout the armor. The Adafruit tutorials and Neopixel Uberguide were BY
FAR the most helpful tools in making this costume an animated, glowy
success! I really just wanted to thank you guys for providing such a high
quality array of products and learning resources. ADAFRUIT IS THE BEST. I
can’t wait to start my next glowy costume!
