Janet Hansen’s AWESOME fake fur LED jacket! –

Here’s a recent addition to our collection of faux fur coats lighted with LEDs. This mid-thigh length unisex coat is made with a black and white polka dot pattern, and we’ve inserted a color-changing RGB LED into the center of each of the spots (over 400 of them!).

When the coat is first turned on, the lights are synchronized for a while (going through a slow fade of red, green, blue, gold, aqua, pink). Over time, the individual lights go through their changes independently and out of phase, for a nice random color changing efffect.

When the lights are off, they are completely hidden, and it looks like you are wearing a “normal” faux fur coat.
