View Full Version : Vocaloid gear?

09-06-2009, 05:04 AM
My sister and I want to cosplay the Vocaloids Miku and Mikuo. I am hardly confident in my ability to make anything, but what I am most worried about is the headset and the arm warmers.

The thing is-- I want to go all out! I want them to light up in sync with our voices!

I've seen plenty of people that sell this, but it's always crazy expensive! I know that it is difficult and expensive to make, but paying that much for a costume is scary.

So I wanted to save a little money and make all of the LED stuff myself.

SO!! My question to you is this:

- Can you link me to tutorials to make this myself?
- Can you link me to the cheapest place that you know of that will make these for us?
- Do you know where I can buy the stuff to make it?

Thank you so much for looking <3

Sound-activated electronics are expensive, because they're expensive. I'm sure you could maybe pick up something useful at Radio Shack, or if not I know a lot of PC case mods use sound-reactive lighting. That might be a place to look.

But you're really not going to get out of it for cheap, and if you're doing it yourself I hope you're good with soldering and electronics and such.
