I wanted to be a pumpkin elf for Halloween and wanted to make my elf extra sparkly and even spooky.
What it does
It is an elf hat costume that flashes LEDs and plays spooky music based on different triggers such as pressing buttons, shaking the hat, and light sensors.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Programming the board and lights the way I wanted to work was a challenge as well as sewing the LED on the right way. I had to fix my program multiple times and test to make sure my wires were sewn on correctly.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
Programming seems like a challenge at first, but once you understand it, it becomes more fun but time consuming.
What's next for Pumpkin Elf
More LEDs and bodysuit with more hardware.
