ok so is it a lamp or isn't it.

Well it lights up, can run of the mains or battery, I am working on solar power. When it on it lights my room and you can wear it out, so I am going to go for it.



Here it is in situ, lighting the room.





Here it is in situ, lighting the room.

The light is produced by Electroluminescent Wire, which a hand sewed between the layers of the corset. I inserted a layer so no stitching would show. This  is link to were I get the wire http://www.surelight.com/ (heres a US site for thouse who asked I have never used them http://www.thatscoolwire.com.), you can also get it on E-Bay. You can wear it with a small battery pack and set it flash in time with music.

More pictures of my cousin out and about in the corset/light.







Thanks for looking and a big thankyou to my cousin and sister who had to stand around in the cold for the photos.

I will try an post a tutorial if any one is intrested.

At first I wasn't sure I got it, but then I got to the last photo and it was like "Whoa!  I get it and this is the craziest thing I've ever seen!"  I love the design you chose (the wings), and it's such a cool idea.  Props for you on originality and execution!

This is freaking amazing. I've never seen anything like it, and I've never seen those light things before. I went to the website to check, and yeah. It's amazing!! I may have to look around more in the US for something like that, or resort to ordering out of the country!! I just have to figure out what to do first!! This is amazing!!

This is a great concept.  You could sell these in stores that club-goers shop in.  In the US, these would sell well at stores like Hot Topic and Torrid.
