Electronically augmented costumes for the Swedish band LUR

In this project, I worked with a Swedish band called LUR. For their current show, I designed their costumes in collaboration with a costume designer.
My part was to implement EL wires and LEDs into the costumes. I programmed the wires and the LEDs to pulse in a certain fasion. Then they were sewn into the costumes. The electronic components necessary to run the EL wires are in a separate pouch which can be attached or detached and is hidden in the costumes. This makes it easy to change the program running the wires.
