Making an LED-lit, smart Fursuit Head @TheMariday

The Mariday has created a beautify NeoPixel-lit fursuit head. There is a full video above. Features

  • Head has RGB LED smart pixels (NeoPixels) mounted on an inner shell
  • Matrix lit eyes
  • LEDs controlled via a FadeCandy board and Raspberry Pi
  • There is an inner shell and an outer shell
  • There are four fans for cooling (making it near impossible to hear while wearing)
  • Exterior is a 3D printed shell which diffuses the light and has fur on it
  • The suit is controlled via WiFi by a second person.

Additional pictures and Twitter posts are listed below via the builder’s Twitter @TheMairday, worth a follow.

And check out CostumePy – a third party library for smart wearables.

  1. It’s awesome that you are covering this sorta stuff in a normal and non-sensationalist way. Moar fursuit content plz. Also maybe look at protogen visors. They have led eyes and microcontrolers for expressions they are hella cool
