Check my latest tutorial on the Adafruit Learning System. I built a dress using NeoPixel LEDs and Arduino code by Phil Burgess: the amazing Oozemaster 3000 code. This code does a mind-blowing job of mimicking the way water flows, oozes, and drips, so this dress creates the illusion that water is constantly glowing and flowing over me.
This guide builds on Phil Burgess’ Oozemaster 3000 guide, which tells how to create the same illusion for halloween props or stationary objects. We wanted to see if the same illusion would work in motion on a costume, and we’re really excited about the results!
From the guide:
Create a costume that oozes charm and sophistication, and shows you off like the Sea Goddess you are.This is a fairly advanced project, with some costuming skills and a lot of work with wiring and soldering. If you don’t already have mad soldering skills, you will have them by the time you’re done with this project.This is also not a step-by-step build guide. I’ll go over tips and techniques and show you the path I took and the mistakes I made, to give you the tools to go and build your own magical creation.
