Title: Lights as a feather wearable lamp
Post by: becca-red on May 02, 2008 03:16:49 AM


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.

This is so incredible. I love the concept, the materials I have never seen and it is a beautiful corset. I can't tell you how much I love this.

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!

it would be amazing if you could post a tut because my fiance is a singer in an industrial/goth band and i know that he would love to have something like this...

well maybe not a corset lol :D but i would definitly wear it a lot!

or if you would be interested in a personal swap at all? ;)

oh and of course you have won my vote!

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.
