New Offerings in our LED Light Shows

October 31, 2014

I've been going a little bit crazy with LEDs this year.

Ok, a lot crazy.  It seems like dreaming up and creating LED-based acts and costumes is all I ever do anymore.  It's moved beyond an interest, right through obsession and landed squarely in the realm of passion.

I'm still doing loads of Pri…

Back in October, we went to Maui for a week and brought the mermaid tail.  We rented an underwater camera and went for a swim, and got a lot of photos and a few video clips as a result.  They have been sitting in an unassuming folder on my hard drive ever since.

Right now I am choreo…
