Zoot Suit Uses Total Control LightingWe just got this note from Frisco about his fabulous Zoot Suit, and we wanted to share it with you:

Hey Cool Neon:
I was just in your store and you asked me to send some pics of a project I made a few years ago, a zoot suit using Total Control Lighting. Thanks, and have a great Burn!

If you want to contact Frisco, you can reach him here: ricosuavezoot@gmail.com

Frisco used the Total Control Lighting square-based pixels in his zoot suit with an Arduino controller and a remote control pad that he programmed himself (in the days before we offered the TCL Mini Controller).

Zoot Suit Uses Total Control LightingWe love hearing from all of you about your projects. Please send pics or videos to: info@coolneon.com

UM lights NOTWMore about Dancing In Cool Neon Electroluminescent Wire!

We got a note from our client, Andrea Aranda, who is producing a show in San Francisco, in which she and her troupe will be performing in their EL wire costumes, and they got all of the wire and connections etc. from Cool Neon!

They used custom soldered High Bright 2.6mm Cool Neon wire and Big Boy Drivers with Switch to create these costumes.
We think they are fabulous!

All About Mounting Total Control Lighting Into a Garment
antrolumeWell, you know how much we like costumes! We have a fabulous video we want to share with you.
Our friends at Anthrolume have made a great tutorial video about mounting Total Control Lighting into a garment! The tutorial will show you how to:

  • hide the wiring
  • keep the garment from fraying at the points where the LEDs emerge
  • be water-resistant
  • have good reflectivity properties
