    DressCode Examples

    A series of lasercut felt designs that can host customized version of DressCode motion or sound circuits. DressCode circuits come in two variants: (1) A simple motion version that uses beaded tilt sensor to trigger LED lights to turn on and off with movement of a metal bead over patches embroidered with conductive thread. (2) A more complex version with a custom circuit board that has a microphone for picking up sound and triggering outputs based on volume thresholds. LEDs sewn to the three outputs of this sound-circuit will light up to music similar to an equalizer display on your stereo.

    Rather than shun the kitsch of blinking LED lights, DressCode celebrates LEDs by incorporating them in fancy festival attire. DressCode encourages everybody to partake in the illuminated future by making their own blinking sound-reactive attire! Celebrate, build, party and become part of something big and bright.

    DressCode is a collaboration between Sophie, Vincent, Seb and Mika and Hannah of KOBAKANT.

    How to assemble the basic mask pattern:
    When you cut the above pattern with laser cutter, you will get these two pieces.

    Measure the 5cm point from the bottom edge and mark it.

    Cut half way from the end of the slit to the marked point with cutter knife. Make sure to not to cut it completely. This line is to help folding the felt.

    Half cut line should look like this when you fold it.

    Do the same for the other side

    Now, turn the mask to the other side and add half cut line from the end of the slit to the bottom edge. This side will be the front side.

    Fold up the line you’ve just made. This will be the tip of the nose. It will look like the picture. This is the angle the mask should get fixed.

    Add the triangle piece where the slit made a gap.

    Sew the triangle piece to the mask to keep the slit separated in this angle.

    It also helps to add extra stitch at the top of the nose hole from the back.

    Now it should look like this, and it is ready to be used as the base mask.

    If you have steam iron, it helps to steam it to fix the shape or give some curvature to the mask to fit the face better.
