    Hi there guys, the new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 dropped this morning and I have been drooling over this damn fine jacket!

    Now one thing I didn't pick up on first go through is that it is full of neon crazyness

    So I want to make this jacket, and I figure the best way to get the lights in there would be to use ElectroLuminescent (EL) Tape/strips or pads/panels. I have never worked with the stuff before, but here in Australia it seems like its hard to find and expensive for the pads (unless I'm not looking in the right spots)

    So the main question would be, can you run a few strips next to each other and get it looking like 1 solid strip? or will you have dark lines where the edges of the tape meet? I have pics if I'm not being clear.

    The second question is would it be safe or advised or even work, if I were to slice off the excess "tape" where the light doesn't shine? Or am I out of luck and the best bet would be to go for the pads/panels?

    Thanks in advance guys

    EDIT:
    So what I mean by slicing or cutting would be along these points

    AliExpress, Gearbest or any of the online. "Tech Flea Markets" such as Goodluckbuy or DX.com are your best bet for cheap EL wire and panels.

    Yeah I think I'm gonna try tackling the jacket as well.

    what you'r searching for is el panels. they are like 60$ each for a 1 foot x 1 foot

    Thanks GasmanR and cullen9 for your help and suggestions. I have found a place in Australia (also happens to only be about a 40 minute drive) that stocks EL Panels. They even sell el kits for Tron costumes.

    For all my fellow Australians here is their site:

    And thanks again to everyone for help and suggestions.

    One last question......If I do a build of this jacket, should I continue on in this thread or start a new one?

    Thanks

    From the sound of it you will have a assortment of jackets in game with different uses.
    Highly customizable character options, both male and female.

    So here's my reference collage, it includes pics from the official cosplays they had at E3, and extensive trailer screenshots. I'll likely be making that enamel pin, some patches, and stickers based on this reference. Also it seems like the cosplayed Jacket is leather.

    Agree, plus if it was leather i think i would want to make my own vs buying and modifying it. this is the one i was looking at.

    and I added pharon66 reference image to my imgur references.

    Yeah Cullen, because of time, and funds, I'll likely make one similar to that for DragonCon.
    I'll take my time on making the leather one, my deadline for that is the game release.

    Hahaha that is the exact jacket i ordered last night!! Great minds huh?

    I live in australia so can't have mine done for dragon con but PAX Aus is at the end of october so thats my deadline.

    And thats a cool plan of having a leather one for release...i have never sewn before lol but how hard is it to make a leather jacket? Im guessing there are good videos or tutorials or whatnot.

    Another cool thing about having it done by game release is hopefully there are multiple badass jackets so that there is a mix at cons!
