Here's the link to Janet Hansen's "enlighted" (not enlightened, see the
subtle difference?) business of illuminated clothing. Like I said,
right up your alley, but VERY expensive. Pretty much everything is
custom and she charges about $10/LED. So most things are in the
multi-hundreds or even thousands of dollar range.
If you're thinking of doing this kind of stuff as a business, Janet is
totally a great role model!
Also, I mentioned my (embryonic) idea for a choker which pulses lights
in time with your heart beat. The wiki page is a bit out of date:
I got the armatures from Rebecca's Wholesale Novelties, only $2.15 each.
Sorry I didn't have any on hand for you to see, they are cheap (i.e.
plastic and crappy) but still an excellent inspiration for what's possible:
Hope to see you again at the meeting - don't let the electrical stuff
intimidate you, it's actually a lot of fun making stuff and showing it
off at our meetings and to random people that you meet :-)
