LED Knight

Enlighted was commissioned to create this lighted knight costume in 2012. The client hoped that wearing this would help her win an invitation to a VIP meet-and-greet session with her favorite singer after a concert.

The foundation is a commercially available knight costume, made of silver/gray plastic designed to mimic metal armor. We decorated the shoulders and front of the torso with flashing color-changing RGB LEDs. Some of the LEDs are flashing at a fast speed, while others go through a slow color fade.

The battery pack is mounted inside the chest piece, and the system includes an on/off switch that is easy to access while the costume is being worn.


The clip below demonstrates the flashiness of the finished product.
