Inspired by the cartoon movie 'Cinderella', we decided to create a costume using soft circuits that would transform from an ordinary maids dress to a glowing dress. The apron on the dress covers a photocell and when removed triggers the 50+ LED's stitched on the dress. These LED's fade in and fade out in a pattern. In the movie when the clock strikes 12, Cinderella's dress goes back to normal. The dress we made is programmed to turn off after 5 minutes, symbolizing the events that happen in the movie. This time limit can easily be changed. Check out the video below to see it in action.
