|Classic 80s costume. Loved the way I was able to make it light up but hated the way it gave me a headache.|
Costume now in retirement as it is starting to fall apart.
Further to the headache thing. In order to light the El-wire, there are several inverters discretely placed around the costume running off 2 AA batteries. One of these inverters is inside the padding of the helmet, resting on the top of my head. Because of its close proximity, I can actually hear the inverter giving off a very high pitched whine when it's switched on, and after about 20 minutes of wearing it, it starts giving me a headache.
I think it is likely the frequency of the the invertor causing the headache as it always when away if I switched off the inverter. This is just something to be aware of if you intend to use electronics.
