Pam Jellyfish - seen in Honolulu
Beware the glowing stingers, in the dark, they make you look twice
A simple umbrella with portholes to see out of, and some dangling Lightwire. Note how the Lightwire was enhanced with thin strips of bubble wrap.
This was a clever use of Lightwire to make an animation of a woman flashing her blouse which was presented by 3-way sequencer with a 'flashing' Lightwire display. The female figure was stitched on a separate piece of cloth and then frame by frame, covered with Lightwire. The finished piece was attached to the back of a jacket. Shown here is the beginning stage of stitching wire to figure outline.
Seen at Emerald City.
Costume seen at Emerald City at Lost At Last Concert.

Raptor Puppet Costume
This was a very clever use of Lightwire to create a mobile, wearable puppet costume. The puppeteer wore a complete black, skin tight body suit that was covered in Lightwire that outlined the form of the raptor. The puppeteer was invisible in the dark allowing the raptor outline to spring forth and terrorize nearby burners with its voracious appetites.
(Burning Man, 2006)
Lightwire Chest Piece
Chest pieces or illuminated corsets seemed to be the rage at a recent Burning.
BATTLESTATIONS!! The Tobin Lightbox

Emils Space Disco (concept)
With a "space disco" theme, this costume was modeled using motocross body armor and pants and a paint ball helmet. The hands were covered with 'laser gloves.' Lightwire was attached with thin nylon thread and stretched around twice and tying it off on the inside of the suit at regular intervals.
