mardi gras suit

This full-body suit, with matching light-up pants and jacket, was made for a client who wanted to light up the streets at Mardi Gras. Apparently, he was so popular, people gave him strings of beads to get him to pose for pictures!

Hundreds of blue, green, white, and red LEDs were used to cover the arms, legs, front, and back of this outfit. The long sleeved version (shown here) has about 400 lights total. A slightly simpler version was also made, with a sleveless vest top and 300 lights.

The lights were programmed to flash in a variety of patterns, including a full downward cascade, and side-to-side movement of stripes. Each LED was mounted within a diamond-shaped fabric patch, and sewn in place.

Keeping up with the spirit of Mardi Gras, this outfit also featured "runway" style red lights on both sides of the pants zipper. These could be activated with a separate switch, as needed.
