lighted faux fur coats, etc

We've added lights to all kinds of faux fur coats, hats, scarves, legwarmers, and other types of clothing. LEDs are especially recommended for this type of installation- they can be embedded in the collar, cuffs, along the hem, or throughout the garment, causing the fur to glow nicely.

Using the same polka-dotted fabric, but fewer LEDs, we've created similar color changing effects in faux fur hats and scarves.


LEDs in polka-dotted fur: 'target vest'

In these designs, we've combined our love of geometric designs, bright colors, and flashing lights. This red and white vest made its debut at the 2005 SIGGRAPH Cyberfashion Show.

The red and white version has about 125 red LEDs arranged in a grid aligned with the printed fur pattern, and about 50 more LEDs in the matching legwarmers.

faux fur pimp coats with LEDs

Here are some examples of coats decorated with LEDs (no fiber optics involved - the light is diffused by the fur itself). As shown below, we can also make matching lighted pimp hats.

fiber optics in fur

For a beautiful (but more subtle) effect, we can attach a fiber optic bundle to each LED, and create points of light that are randomly scattered within the fur. And, if we use a full color RGB type of LED, we can change the colors of all of these points of light.

the "Rainbow Ostrich" coat (shown at right at Cyberfashion 2005) has fiber optics embedded in the collar, hidden within the long multicolor faux fur


In this example, fiber optics have been added to the zebra-patterned collar of a white furry coat.

how to order

Light-up fuzzy jackets and other garments are available on a made-to-order basis. We can provide the "plain" fuzzy item, recommend good sources for faux fur coats, or add lights to one that you already have. Pricing is typically $15-20 per light for single-color LEDs mounted directly in fur, and $20-$30 or more per light for multi-color LEDs, or LEDs joined to fiber optic bundles.
