50 cent

In August 2010, we were commissioned to create lighted clothing for 50 Cent and his G-Unit crew, for their appearances in the historic Home and Home Tour, co-headlined by Jay-Z and Eminem. Two shows were performed in Detroit, Michigan (September 2 and 3), and two shows were performed in Yankee Stadium in New York (September 13 and 14).

We designed and installed custom lighting for several dozen pieces of clothing, including jackets, vests, shirts, and pants, and for accessories such as hats, sunglasses, and a backpack. The styles followed a few themes, as described below.


leather LV jacket with white LEDs

leather Louis Vuitton varsity jacket decorated with hundreds of cool white (blue-tinted) LEDs

camo print jacket and pants with EL wire

You really need to see this in person to appreciate the full effect, but this was one of everyone's favorite outifts. Starting with a "normal" set of camo print jacket and pants, we added multi-color sections of EL wire, roughly following the classic shapes printed on the fabric. (Adding EL wire outlines to each individual shape would have made the garment too stiff).

Gucci vest, jackets, etc with EL wire

If you want to give your designer clothing that something "extra", to make it look even more expensive, here's one approach we can help with:
