Amazon's CreepyParty rubber masks!

by bentremblay on Sun Oct 07, 2018 9:10 am

I have discovered the plastic eyes used in all these rubber masks are _just_slightly_ wider than a Neopixel Jewel 7-element disc.
I popped off the eyes,
soldered the leads,
hot-glued the eyes right onto the boards,
wrapped the edges of the boards in black electrician's tape,
made holes in the mask's eye regions,
threaded the eyes through like a button through a button hole,
and hot-glued the eye assemblies back in place.

The software and wiring diagram used in this project (https://learn.adafruit.com/mystical-led-halloween-hood) was a good starting point, but I used RGBW LEDS so needed to make corrections.

I have attached my alpaca.

Nice! That's one scary looking alpaca. Thanks for posting. :)
