Introduction

Festival season is nearly upon us.  When the sun goes down, professional party-goers light it up with NeoPixels.

But what to make?  A top hat?  Fur leggings?  An LED harness?  Versatility is key when you're on the playa, or camping with your tribe with limited tent space.

This bandolier can be worn many different ways, so you can sport a different LED costume accessory every night of the week.  Make a few extras and loan them to your friends, or strap them all onto yourself and be the life of the party.  Or use them to decorate your tent so you can find your way home at night.  

This is a fairly easy beginner project.  In addition to the parts listed to the right, you'll need:

  • Soldering iron & solder
  • Clear 1/2 inch Heat shrink tubing
  • Hot glue gun
  • Heat gun
  • 2" - 3" wide Fun fur trim
  • 1/4" wide sparkle trim
  • Ribbons for tying
  • Needle & thread
  • Small piece of velcro

You can add your own code and animation modes or just copy and paste ours for delicious animated rainbow goodness.
