Woohoo! The circuitry is almost all soldered. Still has to be properly connected to the battery pack, controller, etc.but it's actually on the suit and able to light up now. And early next week, time to buy a shower curtain to diffuse the lights. Holy MOFO are they bright and we turned them down to HALF strength (as I said earlier, no EL wire or tape here. We used flexible RGB LED strips that are more typically used for things like backlighting countertops, car underlighting, etc.). Pictures soon, I promise. Boyfriend just has to send them to me once he puts them on his own laptop (since my camera's still missing).
Help me get rid of my parasprite swarm!
