If he's on here please contact me as I want to work on a project here in the UK for Glastonbury and I need to know how on earth he did it. Did he use the SparkFun LilyPad wearable LEDs? Please someone get him to contact me ;) Thankeeeeeeeee

I'm doing a pretty major clothing LED project, and it looks to me like he just stuck blue LEDs straight through the fabric and wired them up with a resistor for each LED. I'd imagine that he's wearing a 12v battery pack in a fanny pack type deal. You can get the LEDs and resistors cheap on Ebay.

Forget EL wire and glo sticks.. LED is the way :)

Cant tell if its blurred, but looks like he used a little ElWire around the eyes and mouth.

This guy did something mighty similar, but his get-up lacks the EL wire and the LEDs on the head so maybe it's not your man...:

When he lights his streetlamp, it is as if he brought one more star to life, or one flower.
When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Our neighbor, Dusty Dave, did something similar, used one of those white hazmat suits with strings of LED lights just poked through the fabric. His were multi-colored.
These are not my fuckos.

I don't know him, but I did speak to him at the burn. He said EACH of these was powered by a watch battery. Ouch.

I saw this guy out there two or three years ago. He was using these little body lights, which are basically a little tube with an LED on one end, a coin cell inside and a rare earth magnet on the other so you can attach it to clothing or other things. He bought a boatload of them and simply attached them. Must be hell to turn them on and off.

This is the type of light I am talking about: http://coolglow.com/components/com_virt ... d09985.gif
