In addition, since the bi-annual Copenhagen Burlesque party is this weekend, I thought I’d share a project I completed a few years back. I present to you my red LED goggles on a top hat:
I originally created this for a Steampunk costume, and I intend to re-use it for this Copenhagen Burlesque. In fact, this Copenhagen Burlesque I will be re-using costume parts from several past costumes to create a Steampunk Wolfhunter costume.
The goggles are lit by two LED strips each, soldered together and with a wire leading to a 9 volt battery secured inside the hat.
I might need to switch out the LED strips and resolder everything in the near future, though – the LEDs don’t light up as well as they did the first time I used the hat.
