Say hello to my latest new invention: LED persistence-of-vision belly dance fan veils.
I created these because I haven't seen much like them commercially available for LED dancers, and I am super happy with how they turned out. I can upload whatever colors and code I like to them for all sorts of different effects. And they have pretty sequin fabric that reflects the light and adds so much motion when they're being twirled and danced with.
I wrote a tutorial about how to make them and posted it over at Adafruit.com - take a look! And I wrote a little more about the process over on my Fire Pixie Fashion blog.
Here is a slideshow showing some long exposure still photos of the fans. I'm really having fun with these.. :)
