  1. I just ordered some EL Wire to do this.

    What bag did you use? I ask because I didn’t see it mentioned and I’m sure someone will ask (I’ll probably convert a vertical slingbag, but still)

    Killer project idea (I’ve been thinking of using EL wire to do something tron related for a long while now) that I’ll be doing over the new year :)

  2. wow, nice idea.

    There is so much more you can do with that.,… i am thinking about EL Wired Jackets and Pants :D

  3. Ha – those are great pictures!
