Light up Luna Plush by meplushyou Light up Luna Plush by meplushyou
Yay! I finally did something with lights!

I've been wanting to make plushies with electronics for a while now and decided to start with something simple, obviously inspired by adamlhumphreys  <3
Luna has EL wire in her mane and tail. The controller is located in her back leg, behind a zipper. The light has a few settings: off, on, flash slow and flash fast (or as I like to call it: Rave mode xD)

I'm so happy with how she came out! I've tried lots of new techniques on her and learned a lot. 
I can't wait to make more interactive plushies in the future!

Specs:
Made with minky fabric and sparkly organza for her mane and tail. She has removeable accessories: her crown and necklace are magnetic and her shoes come off too. Her shoes are made with stabilizer material so they are nice and sturdy. Her wings are also very sturdy and wired so slightly poseable. 
Her cutiemark is embroidered with glow in the dark thread. Her eyes have gradients. Her b
ody was made using the princess pattern by valleyviolet. Mane/tail, accessories and embroidery are made using my own files. 
She takes 2 AA batteries ^^

Size: 35cm / 14 inch

Ooooooo, now THAT is one way cool idea!  Beautifully-done, too, with or without the neat light-up effect!  (Luna's my all-time top favourite character!)

Thank you so much! She was a lot of fun to make. I should really start a new project like this.. La la la la

Purely-technical question:  Was the lighting effect difficult to do? 

Just curious...

It wasn't too difficult, since it's basicly just one EL-wire. I just had to plan out how the wire runs through the plush. It was a lot of work to handsew the wire on her though xD

Woah, that's awesome. I've never even heard of EL wire before. You really went all out on this one especially with the magnetic shoes and the glow in the dark CM as well.

I know this one isn't even close to how complex your creations are, but it was a lot of fun to play with. I can't wait to try out more of this stuff. I've got a Flora/Lillypad, conductive fabric & thread and lots of sensors waiting in my drawer xD After finishing some commissions I'll definitely be tinkering away~

No probs! :aww:

It's still a good start! I'd honestly like to get to what my Patreon's initial idea was with an interactive plush, but I've taken a slight deviation in focus: www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUjJVR…
About 6 months of work here and there, but I hope it works out. :eager: My Kickstarter page in progress is here if you want to take a look: www.kickstarter.com/projects/9…
Looking forward to your developments! :iconraritylaplz:

Ah, not a bad deviation at all!
That looks really interesting!
At the company where I work we've been busy with a lifesize robotic plush with arduino (with servos and voice module and everything!) which made me regain interest in microcontrollers again. I had classes with arduino at school, but I didn't really do much with it untill now. 
I see why it would be insanely handy to have FETs on the board itself! I'll definitely be backing your kickstarter once it goes live. That sure looks like all the best things in one package ^_^

Thanks and best of luck!

Oh wow! :O I admit that was totally unexpected. :D If I may ask, what company do you work for? :-?

Arduino classes at school? Apparently the Arduino isn't quite as old as I thought, at least as far as public awareness goes. ^^;

Very true, and I might get to the point of offering some with FETs, but you see my angle, right? People can choose the FETs that best fit their application, whether that's your $0.30 N/P FETs, or your $3.00+ N/P FETs. ^^
But if this works out, I also hope to design a smaller variant with at least twice as many fixed N-ch 3A FETs, (and this one would have the FETs already in place). :la:

:iconapplejackhappyplz: Thank you very much for your encouragement! :hug:

I work for a software and media company called AlienTrick. We don't usually do robot related stuff, sadly xD As an R&D project, we're building or company mascotte (an Alien) as a plush robot. When finished, he'll be at the door to greet people ^^ I'm always happy when we get to do a bit of tinkering in the boss' time!

And yes, arduino classes. That was at the first or second year of uni so, ehm, almost 10 years ago. Man, time goes fast. 

Oh, if your project goes live, I'll be sure to spam my colleagues with it. I'm sure lots of them will be interested!

Oh sweet! :XD: That sounds like a fun company to work for! :D Makes me think of the company behind this: www.indiegogo.com/projects/big… Amazing products too. :O

Oh wow. :iconflutterwhoaplz: Maybe I was totally out of the loop at that time. ^^;

Awesomeness! :iconapplejacklaplz: Just need to settle on a date. I might need to rethink my video and show more human interaction based on the recommendations I've been researching. Might be good to have some of my update posts ready to go before the launch itself too.
