As explained in Part 1, the target is a Halloween costume that includes animated NeoPixel effects. Basically this is taking Ice holiday lights with flair projectWrap it around the body and add a USB power bank. Part of the appeal is that after Halloween, the electronics can be repurposed into the next holiday show. But for now… Halloween! And quickly!

The choice of character was largely determined by clothing. While there are endless monsters suited to blood distillation or ecoplasmic ooze, Ooze Master 3000 It specifically relies on a NeoPixel “ground signal” to complete the illusion. So that narrows the room for something with a long skirt or cloak. There are still many options! Choose the Grim Reaper because there are ready-made materials available, and because it is something that is easy to identify and self-explanatory. I’m not a fan of “explained” fashion.

One can find a ready-made reaper in that Halloween store that crawls dead business shells like hermit crab. Most of their offerings are near the budget end of things, but that might be enough…Most people will be impressed by the effects of NeoPixel anyway. Monsters are my bag though, I wanted to escalate it as something usable year after year or at horror conventions, so I’m ready to go a little more. It’s all true, but it’s up to you!

If you are inclined towards DIY, All Sewing pattern companies have a variety of gown designs. Or if you are a fan of Halloween, Maybe there’s a starter outfit already in the costume box. I found a rich texture Grim Reaper Getup from Zagone Studios…their work is a cut above the usual ‘outfit in a suitcase’. Not a pocket change, but not too far-fetched either. I especially like that it’s a family business that’s made in the US…kind of reminds me of another process. Things take time to arrive by mail, another reason is proof wont Get ready for Halloween this year.

This particular robe is made of burlap…cool because it’s so woven, NeoPixels can underneath and shine through. It is a double breasted closure, so the chest area is completely covered and drips can run down the ribs. I spent some time weathering the costume to give it a lively (died?) look (these and other tips are at Cosplay Hacks Instructs).

That’s it for today’s premium. The next update will start entering the electronics!
