Valkerie’s Costume Jacket (Wearable Tech Costume)

Annie Lywood Video Valkeries Costume Jacket Jo Hounsome Photography from Bonnie Binary on Vimeo.

This jacket was designed for Valkerie, a teenage character with superpowers and a badass attitude, who likes to appear at night. It has been a great project to work on and involved the collaboration of a team of skilled artisans. The lights on the back are simply controlled by an App on an iPhone, and we designed a special textile touchslider to control the performance of the lights on the arm of the jacket.
