Introduction

Finally, a skirt that does everything.

 

This skirt uses the amazing Circuit Playground board and stranded neopixels to create a versatile garment with loads of features.

  • Sound / music reactive mode
  • Motion sensing twinkle mode
  • Rainbow color palette modes

 

I made a petticoat or under-slip that can be worn underneath a variety of long skirts or dresses.  It would be simple to convert this project to pants, chaps, a vest, or any layered costume look.

The 3d printed "belt buckle" houses the Circuit Playground and adds another 10 reactive lights and button controls to the ensemble.   It can work as a standalone light buckle without the skirt as well.
