The costume is made from faux leather and EL Film strips. The luminescent panels are removable, velcored onto the leather vest in order to make the top washable. To be frank, the cutting and re-soldering the EL film was quite tricky to work with but I think I managed to the tame the beast with the help of conductive fabric tape. I will write up a tutorial on how to work with the EL film in the next three weeks for those folks who are interested. Meanwhile… here are the rest of the pics.
How is it that this ‘fan made’ suit looks so much better than one of the officially licensed ones? I’m really digging those lights, and she mentions that they’re removable on her version, so maybe you could buy the ‘official’ ones and slap some of that EL Film on them to make them totally bad ass.
