Also, you do want to be sure that whatever glue you use is flexible enough for whatever you need it for; hot glue is usually pretty good, but you need to ensure that it actually sticks to whatever you put it on. Some things it doesn't stick too well to.

Upon inspection, there was one solder point that was missing. So I cut out a portion of the plastic covering, put a little bead of solder there and it worked perfectly. My problem is that there is an unprotected hole in the back of the pixel.
Any thoughts on how to patch that? Hot glue is the first thing that comes to mind, but I'm not sure how that would interact with the electronics.
Eta: oops. Thought I was in another led thread. Did not intend to hijack. Amazing project by the way.

My dress is finally done! I hit a few design bumps along the way and had to change my thinking several times...but it works and I love it!
(I was just going to post the video, but my other half insisted that I cover the kid screaming/dog barking with some dub. )
Without further adieu...
