Been playing with EL wire to give some effect for my new suit. This was just a trial. Cut out parts of the grill in the Gort. Still gonna back it with mesh. Finish the paint and lenses. Just wanted to see how the lighting worked

Ha... I have a bunch a it. Been working on a Daft Punk suit on the side and decided to apply some of it to my Pred suit. I bookmarked the link on my computer, but my Internet is down.. Posting all of this through my iPhone. I'll get you the link when I can... There are many sites selling wire and pre-fab kits... Not very expensive either. Think I spent 5 bucks on the bio's lighting

I used blue EL wire on my Imperial Seatrooper helmet. Looks awesome, as it does on this Gort bio as well. :mad:

EL wire and anything that lights up is cool in my book.
I got a bunch of Red EL wires, LED's etc. from my electric supplier. There's so much u can do with them like for computer gaunts etc!

...and I aim to intrigue.
EL is actually great ...not as bright as LEDs..more of a consistent mechanical glow. Too late now ..I cut into that Bio already :mad:

The greatest thing about EL wire is it doesn't consume alot of electricity so 2 batteries should last you a while and it doesn't heat up. here is a link I found for EL wire they have a plug and play section for the people who may not know how to do there own wiring http://www.elbestbuy.com/index.html

Great idea. Really brings the bio in a class of its own and looks sweet and not too overdone. That blue lighting would look sweet lighting up a row of bios....mmmmm
