Hacker Masquerade DIY Mask Workshop

Media Title

From my heart and from my hands, why don’t people understand my Halloween mask? Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman would be disappointed to learn there’s nothing weird about soft-circuit science. The purpose of this workshop is simple. Step one: take an ordinary costume; step two: make it awesome. If it moves, blinks, flashes or buzzes, chances are it can find its way into your design. Don’t know your resistor from your capacitor? It doesn’t matter! Diagrams and flexible rope-like circuits let do-it-yourselfers easily integrate LEDs and other electronic gizmos. If you can tie your shoes, you can stitch together a kick-ass mask. Makers and mini-makers alike are free to bring current costume projects from home or start from scratch. Materials are covered by the cost of admission, and the Hactory staff is more than happy to lend a hand. Donning your digital duds also grants you free admission into the first Hacker Masquearade Ball taking place later this month. -Bill Morse
