The costume includes color changing LEDs on the spine and front that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller and onboard RGB controllers (respectively), and is powered by 16 AA batteries, two 2032 coin cells, and one 9-volt battery. In total there's more than 70 LED's on the entire costume

i love your look with this, i'm working on an indie idea and this totally gave me a great view of something new-wish i knew you in person to ask advice or get you to help develope imagary
keep up the creative work
what are the spine fins/spikes made of?
The spine assembly is acrylic segments mounted to a flexible piece of vinyl tubing (so the spine can bend with the wearer).
There's over 40 separate segments in the spine assembly--I used Solidworks to model and plan it before cutting
It's an original design...I love all kinds of cyberpunk (Masumune Shirow, Eric Canete, Barbara Canepa) and I love bright lights, so I put this together from those influences.
~Dekeradio: He sent over a few more in the set--I'll post some more of them soon. SO happy with how they turned out!
~Ragesteam: gracias! los chicos @ Beatdown Boogie hacen un gran trabajo (via Google Translate )
*Netko09: You read my mind! I've got big plans for some motorized knife action upgrade
This has been my most time consuming project so far, but it was so much fun to make and finally see come together. Glad to be able to share the final product with you all!
If you can go check out some of Benny's other photo works--he does a great job!
