Via Reddit and Hackster.io: Redditor l30 built an LED half mask that definitely gets noticed!

This mask started as an airsoft half mask that just covers the nose, mouth, and cheeks. The bulk of the mask is constructed from metal mesh that protects the wearer from airsoft BBs, but doesn’t restrict airflow. It’s also perfect for allowing light from LEDs to shine through. Those are NeoPixel-style WS2812B individually-addressable RGB LEDs, and are controlled by an Adafruit Gemma M0 development board that is intended specifically for wearables projects.

l30 used a total of 53 LEDs, which are arranged to fit the shape of the mask. A thin piece of flexible white plastic was sandwiched between the LEDs and the metal mesh to diffuse the light. Then, the LEDs and the Gemma M0 were covered in a layer of black fabric to protect them and ensure that the mask is comfortable to wear. Finally, three AAA batteries are housed in a battery holder on the strap, and two buttons on the sides of the mask are used to set the brightness and change lighting patterns.

Create your own bespoke glowing NeoPixel corset and smile to yourself as all the heads in the room turn to follow you. Line your perfect silhouette with 500 programmable lights that show you off like a fairy disco queen. What could be more alluring?

This project requires careful crafting, some tricky soldering, a little sewing, and a bit of patience. It’s worth it! Focused attention to the construction of your corset will lead to a masterpiece of beauty like nothing you’ve seen before.

This is an intermediate level project. Adafruit’s side-light NeoPixel LEDs create a really unique look — they practially diffuse themselves, and when the lights reflect off the white satin of the corset, the whole thing appears to glow. It’s a really beautiful effect.

Get crafty and create a wearable glowing Gem that expresses your style and matches your favorite Steven Universe character. This is a fun and easy project that’s great for kids or beginners, or anyone who wants to add some easy bling to their cosplay.

Use MakeCode’s drag-and-drop code editor to customize the colors to match your favorite characters. Tilt the gem left or right to switch colors, and shake it to fuse the two gems and create a Fusion character gem.  We’re fusing Pearl and Amethyst to make Opal. All Right!

This is the latest guide from Erin St. Blaine to feature some of our favorite Cartoon Network characters. Which character are you cosplaying?

Create a beautiful and unique fascinator hat for every occasion. A NeoPixel Jewel,  Gemma M0, and tiny battery are hidden inside. The flowers and feathers glow tastefully and set off your outfit-du-jour with colors and animations you can design yourself in MakeCode.

A little hot glue, a little creativity, and you’ll be the talk of the Derby Hat Parade. Make one for everyone in your wedding party, or two for yourself and one for each of your girlfriends for a night on the town.

From Wikipedia:

fascinator is a headpiece, a style of millinery. Fascinators were originally a form of lightweight knitted head-covering. Since the 1990s the term refers to a type of formal headwear worn as an alternative to the hat; it is usually a large decorative design attached to a band or clip, sometimes incorporating a base to resemble a hat, in which case it may be called a hatinator.

Hatinator is my new favorite word.

Make a set of roaring 20s costume spats with this new tutorial from Erin St Blaine.   This is a fairly easy project that requires some light soldering and sewing.

Adorn your gams with a Gemma M0 and a Hotsy-Totsy strand of blinkers. The fellas will turn their heads as you strut by like a daisy in the Cat’s Pajamas. You’ll need a soldering iron, a sewing machine and a bit of pizazz.  Dizzy them up with some drag-and-drop coding over at MakeCode, and you’ll soon be lousy with lookers.

Savvy?

Anthony Fox writes on his blog:

I started this project last October. In my spare time, I help organize a Python meetup in Orange County and we didn’t have a speaker lined up for the month. Being that it was the Halloween season, I offered to build something fit for a costume. Luckily, I had an LED ring and a CircuitPython board (an Adafruit Gemma M0) laying around, so I thought an Arc Reactor would be just perfect.

An Arc Reactors is a fictional power source in Marvel’s Comic Universe, famously used by Iron Man to keep him alive. It’s essentially a circular device that glows blue with a dim flickering light. The flicker is the key to making it seem like there’s actual nuclear power flowing through the arc reactor. You can read more about that here, if you’d like: Marvel Fandom: Arc Reactor.

Fast forward to present day:

My wife decides she needs it, but she’d also like a big, red button wired up to it and when the button is pressed, it changes the color from blue to pink (temporarily). This, she explained to me, would be a sort of doorbell for her cubicle at work. She often works with headphones on and is usually startled when co-workers “sneak up” behind her.

Easy come, easy go. See more on Anthony’s blog, the code on GitHub, and the video below. Great project!
