Hello everyone, Well it's time to show you my poncho. I have had last minute disasters. My Flora just burned on Pierre's umbrella hat Im trying to get something going. I have spent so many hours designing and adding so many little details that this setback is stressful. I have no idea what happened since it was working fine this morning. Anyway let me show you my design and I hope that before midnight I have Lights.
I will share pics of all of the things i added to create my design. It all started with an inspiration and a sketch. My poncho turned out to be 55x43. I have 211 RGB LEDs, 8 strips plus 4 single LEDs. I will share videos from the start of our brainstorming and as we made changes along the way. The Adafruit flower logo is going to hold my buttons and Pierre's with glue dots and cut out of the vinyl. I also used the star on the tops of my umbrella hats. I used 3 Neo Pixel rings 16 for my buttons. Soldering is not healthy and I was getting sick from the fumes so I got out a mask. Not pretty but I like having healthy lungs. Pierre and I have identical ponchos and hats. Every detail on my poncho is on his and the umbrella hats. The two hoodie below are the daywear hats, but since time has not allowed me to finish them I will do them later. The notes on paper are all the detail measurements made for placing strips and everything else on the poncho. I used the glue dots to hold all the strips and made my own plastic strips, to cover the strips because I didn't like the weight from the rubber cover they came with. The El wire below is the chasing kind.
