  • how to add EL wire to a coat or other garment

    If I could get a reply from either the author, or other readers who've had experience with this, that would be great. I'm just wondering how you get separate objects or shapes to light up together. I'm having trouble explaining what I mean. I'm trying to make a glowing skeleton costume for my son this Halloween. I have a suit that already has the bones printed on it, and a rope of EL wire that's already put together and connected to a battery pack. I want to outline the bones with the wire, but how do I trace the separate bones and get them to all light together at the end? I read that you can cut the wire and add a connector to it? I'm kind of lost on all of this...
