  • Halloween Costume Idea - Glowing Cartoon Stickman Costume Kit

    Year after year our EL Wire Glowing Stickman Kit has been the most popular kit that we sell for people choosing a Halloween costume. Our Cartoon Stickman kit has all of the glowing parts & connectors you need to build your own glowing stickman kit for Halloween this year. The kit is simple to attach to any dark clothing you might own using either safety pins, sewing or glue. The colourful stickman looks amazing at night or in low light conditions, the vibrant glow of the EL wire is easy on the eyes unlike LED lights that can be hard to look at directly. This costume kit will definitely wow your friends & family!

     

    The regular sized Stickman Kit contains the following:

    • 3 x 2 meters of pre-soldered EL Wire (your colour choice)
    • 1 x Basic Driver (battery power pack)
    • 1 x 3-way Splitter (to attach all wires to one driver)
    • 3 x 2 meter Power Extenders

     

    How To Build Your Glowing Stickman Costume For Halloween This Year 

    EL wire can be attached a few different ways depending on what you are more comfortable with. The easiest route is using small safety pins, and this method allows the wire to move slightly between points helping to prevent any unnecessary bending or breaking of the EL wire. The EL wire can also be sewn or glued for a more exact design, be careful to not pierce or break the outer shell of the EL wire.

     

    The First step in assembling your costume would be to lay your clothing down and plan out your design. There is usually a few inches of leftover EL wire at the hands and feet allowing for a small foot or hand design (circle or line). The driver aka battery pack can be kept in a convenient pocket, the connecting wires should have plenty of length to reach the EL wire.

     

    One piece of EL wire runs from one foot to the other, running up and down the front of the legs. It is powered by one of the 2 meter power extenders that connects at one of the feet. The 2nd piece of EL wire runs hand to hand, with the connector attaching at one of the ends. The 3rd wire would start at waist level and run up the chest, and around the hood (assuming you are using a hoodie). Without a hoodie a custom mask could be created but it would always be attached to the clothing which may be a pain. A hoodie is highly recommended.

     

    Most of our customers add a pair of our unique Glow Glasses to really add a WOW factor to their costume, we offer numerous colours & designs that are easy to wear and won't affect your vision.

     

    Tip

    Keep the wire loose and flowing so that when walking or moving around, the wire isn't bending as it could eventually break if bent too many times.

     

    To take your stickman costume kit to the next level we recommend adding a 1 or 2 meter starter kit and creating a unique face mask. Store bought masks make a great base for adding EL wire, but you can also use black duct tape coated cardboard for the classic Stickman face.

EL Wire Kit Buying Guide - How To Choose The Correct Kit

EL Wire Buyers Guide

EL wire is a great way to add a wicked glow to clothing, costumes, backpacks, hats, bikes, and more. It is a thin, heat-free plastic coated wire that gives off a cool 360 degree glow. EL wire is available in 10 colors and 4+ lengths to suit your needs. Our glowing wire is flexible to allow for intricate designs and is simple to attach to fabric, surfaces, and items. EL wire which is short for electroluminescent wire is made up of a tiny copper wire coated in a phosphor that will glow when powered by a 'driver'. There are two smaller 'corona' wires surrounding the copper wire that carry the electricity back and allow it to glow. The inner wire is covered in a PVC casing that gives the wire its unique color and it also protects the core from the elements.

 

EL Wire Starter Kits

Our EL wire starter kits offer a great way to get started with EL wire as they are ready-to-use and contain everything you need. We have paired up our extra bright & colorful glow wire with a small & easy to hide driver to light it up. These kits are great for small to medium sized projects such as adding some glow to the brim of a hat, lining the zipper of a hoodie for Shambhala, or decking out your bike for Burning Man.

 

Deluxe Multi Color EL Wire Kits

Our deluxe multi color EL wire kits are great for when you need multiple strands connected to one driver. Our kits come with 2 to 6 individual strands of EL wire, a splitter, and a driver designed to power that length of wire. The deluxe kits are great for medium to large projects such as decking out your bike, lighting up your campsite at the next music festival, or building that winning Halloween costume. The drivers are typically a little bigger than the starter kits, but on the upside the battery run-time is a lot longer.

 

Sewable EL Wire Kits

Our sewable EL wire kits are similar to the starter and deluxe kits except the wire included is a 'welted' version that is made for sewing. The welted EL wire has a small 1cm plastic tab that runs the length of the wire so you can sew or pin it to clothing & costumes. Regular EL wire can still be sewn using a loop method which can be more efficient depending on the design.

 

Sound Sensitive EL Wire Kits

Our Sound sensitive EL wire kits are extremely popular and make a great choice if you are going to be using it around music. These kits will dance, pulse and flash to the music when in sound mode. We sell single color EL wire kits as well as 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 color deluxe kits. These kits are great for parties and outdoor festivals, but sitting next to the speakers will have them fully lit as it can overwhelm the sensor.

 

 Which EL wire kit is the right kit for me?

It's better to round up when measuring your required amount as most people don't buy enough length the first time, and extra EL wire can be cut and capped. Picking out 2 funky colors will help your design stand out, the most popular combinations are blue & pink, lime & red, and purple and yellow. With all of our EL wire kits we highly recommend our 2m power extenders allowing you to keep the driver in your pocket or tucked away somewhere safe.
