TRON: Legacy. How would I be able to set-up a battery-run LED Strip system in my NY Comic Con costume? Answered
Alright, so I'm going to NY Comic-Con with a loose adaptation of Jeff Bridges' (Kevin Flynn) outfit from the movie Tron: Legacy. I chose this outfit because, as far as lighting is concerned, it seems like the second-easiest costume to make. Pictures will be provided below.
Now, my confusion. Because EL wire would be a bit too dim (and expensive) for the effect I want, I've decided on the LED strip approach. I found this reel of 3528 SMD LED Strip that is both cheap and very bright, but after looking around the interwebz about battery power, I am thoroughly confused.
For about (at most) 12 feet of this wire, what would I need to set-up a system where the LED would last for most of the day? I probably would wear it for 3 of the 4 days of NYCC, so I suppose the battery(ies) should be rechargeable (or if not, cheap enough to buy in bulk). I'm a college student, so I'm on bit of a budget if you couldn't tell already lol.
Thank you in advance. I hope to hear from you guys soon!
