Last year, Tearschu and I worked together to bring the LED Dress to life, and that was a huge success!
This year, I worked with Tearschu to create another RGB item of clothing!
Tearschu designed and made a jacket with a clear PVC material, and we incorporated a strip of 144 WS2812b RGB LEDs into it, this was a challenge, as the power draw was too much for the 3-5A 5v power regulator we used last year.
We needed a much beefier 50W power supply! However thanks to some help from Reddit user /u/krhacken we were finally able to get brightness control working mere days before the shoot!
This allowed us to dim the lights for scenes where they were too bright, and for when we were just walking around between locations to conserve power!
We were able to go the entire 3-4 hour shoot with a single Turnigy NanoTech 1.6Ah 3S LiPo!
Im really happy with how the photos turned out and I can’t wait to make something for next year!
Make sure you ‘like’ the photos on Facebook!
