Check Out the Light-Up Princess Dress the World’s Coolest Uncle Made for Halloween
It’s October, which means it’s officially Halloween! (Halloween is a month-long celebration. Don’t @ me.) And there’s no better way to welcome October than with this amazing light-up princess dress a cool uncle made for his niece.
Redditor Luke_Dukem said his niece wanted to be a princess for Halloween, so he made her a dress that lights up. He posted a photo of the dress, and the only thing lighting up more than this dress is the face of the little girl wearing it.
Â Seriously, this wins Uncle of the Year for sure.
As another Redditor pointed out, if you set this to flash from blue to pink, you could have a real-life Sleeping Beauty moment.
“Good job on the dress AND making sure she never gets hit by a car. #ProParent,” another Redditor applauded.
There’s a full step-by-step tutorial on his website. He started with a purchased dress, which means there was no actual sewing involved. There is some soldering, but soldering is easier than it sounds. If you can fill in a bubble on a standardized test, you have all the skills you need to use a soldering iron.
From the look on her face, that little girl is positively ecstatic. This must have been such a treat for her uncle to put together. It was a long, complicated process, but how often do you get to blow a kid’s mind like that? She’s going to be talking about this light-up princess dress for the rest of her life.
He says the whole thing cost about $120, and $45 of that was to buy the dress and petticoat. That’s less than a person would spend on the “good” princess costumes from Disney, and this is way more exciting. (Hm. Now that I say that, a person could also use this technique to make the Disney dresses light up, too.)
