Here’s Donivan’s entry for the MAKE & CRAFT Halloween contest, he writes – “This is my MeKeVoRkA costume I made a few years ago. The chest plate is using an EL sequencer that has been modified to use a larger inverter. Unfortunately the photos don’t show all the strands lit at once. There is a Basic Stamp microcontroller that is used to activiate a laser module and the red eyes in the mask. The mask also has a microphone that goes to a voice changer box and 10W audio amplifier. All the EL wire interferes with the audio, but I think it sounds kinda cool. There’s a video with sound on YouTube, see above for the link.

The belt pack contains the audio amplifier + voice changer circuits, the Basic Stamp board, the hacked sequencer, three EL wire drivers and two sets of eight AA rechargable batteries to power it all for about 3 – 4 hours. “ [via] – Link & video.
