Wiring Diagram

We'll be using two separate strands of neopixels: one in the front and one in the tail and ball.

The two pockets you made in the front of the hat will hold the flora (on the left) and the battery and power switch (on the right).

The battery & switch will connect to the OUT end of the front strand and the IN end of the tail strand, to minimize long wire runs. (This is a possibility folks sometimes overlook with NeoPixels: while data MUST travel in a specific direction, "in" to "out," power doesn’t care and can be applied at either end.)
