Combining cyberpunk culture, clothes and LEDs may seem a bit radical, but people are now creating clothes and accessories that will blow your mind.

With the affordability of LEDs, the ease of 3D printing, and Arduino microcontroller programming, it’s now easier than ever to create some absolutely stunning cyberpunk socks. Here are 8 of the best.

LED Mini Skirt

Our first look is the outfit from Reddit user SexyCyborg, which combines LED lights and a miniskirt that is sure to grab attention. But don’t just think it’s a simple skirt with fancy lights, the practicality is sure to impress.

backlit skirt

She came up with her original idea for an LED skirt from a similarly designed Japanese concept called the Hikaru skirt. However, SexyCyborg was not happy. She wanted something more practical and suitable for an adult. (Japanese Hikaru is «a frilly tutu skirt,» as she puts it, and better made for fashion purposes than practical purposes.)

The talented Chinese manufacturer also made a belt with a powerful battery, 3D printed the case, seeded 5050 RGB LED strips inside the skirt, inserted LED strips into a plastic sleeve to protect against sweat and accidental liquor spills, and put it all together. via bluetooth and phone app. If you want to create your own, you can learn about the process and follow her instructions.

The skirt can also change color depending on her surroundings and mood, which she said was a lot of fun during the Fourth of July celebrations.

DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes

Practicality should not be your main goal. If you’re going to a party that calls for some pretty fancy designs, keep your eyes peeled for cyberpunk LEDs. The designs can vary from cyborgs, demons, aliens and other creatures that stumble into the night.

If you want to do something similar, don’t worry. Go to the details page on, grab your best soldering iron, watch the tutorial video above, and carefully craft your eyes for sure to entertain. You never know, you might get good enough and create an LED contact lens that displays readable information.

If you are looking for something that will lie on your head in » situations with high loads», you can reinforce the stainless steel wire or use other materials that may come in handy if you are jumping at a dance party.

LED glasses

If you don’t like LED eyes, consider these cyberpunk LED goggles. In fact, there are plenty of LED glasses on eBay and Amazon, but you can also create your own or customize a previous design. The best thing about the video below is that the glasses are made from «scrap electronics» that you can put around the house and are pretty easy to make.

Cyber ​​Falls Wig

Now that you have your eyes or glasses, you will need to make yourself a wig. What good is cyberpunk clothing if you didn’t have glowing hair?


This project from will take a little time, skill, and cost a little more than other projects. However, the results are amazing, as you can see from the picture above. Once you get the hang of Neopixels, you’ll be left with no end of other projects: impressive cloud lamp cloud lamp cloud lamp LED pixel display. which can be useful for many things, and ambilight which can make watching movies more enjoyable.

3D printed glowing cyberpunk spikes

Adafruit has another project that all cyberpunk fans will surely like — 3D spikes on the shoulders. These bad guys are made from Ninjaflex filament (used for 3D printing), NeoPixel LEDs and Gemma — a tiny wearable platform, compatible with Arduino .

As you can see from the video, you can also print out other patterns like ice crystals that you might like if you plan to wear them in winter or wear the spikes as a bracelet, belt or neck strap. Also, consider what SexyCyborg has done above and link a bluetooth wearable and a light iPhone mod or android app so your spike or crystals can change colors.

LED sneakers

You may have already seen people wearing illuminated sneakers. They seem to be popular with children and young people around the world. And you may have noticed that some of these sneakers can get quite expensive.

Good news. You don’t need to spend a small fortune to buy a pair of these sneakers. Just buy a cheaper pair of sneakers you like, follow Adafruit’s instructions, and save on your own design. You can choose any color of LED lighting and even add more technology to your design. For example, Flora, Adafruit’s wearable Arduino device, now includes a micro-USB port that can help you get more done with your project.

EL Wire Light Suit

Wire Suit EL (Electro-Luminescence) is a pretty cool weekend project and a great way to impress your friends at a party or fun party. What’s more, making a suit out of EL wire isn’t that hard, especially if you’re good at soldering.

If you’re not good, the EZ-EL group who made the suit above also made a video to help you learn how to solder.

The great thing about EL Wire is that it gives you a lot of creative freedom: more light, less batteries, different colors, etc. The choice is yours.

LED masks

The only thing you need right now for the perfect cyberpunk costume is a mask. Good news. Etsy has some great masks to choose from or take inspiration from. One that I found interesting is Huboptic’s Bandana LED Mask. His designs are even featured in the official Skrillex video — Dirty Vibe.

The cyberpunk set is complete!

While you won’t be able to wear all of these ideas together, you can certainly mix and match these items and impress your cyberpunk friends. Don’t be afraid to try new things while following projects. You never know what you can create, even if it’s not clothing related. This style is in its infancy and can really take off with original ideas.

Take action! Try to create something new, do it yourself, and learn about the technologies that make these projects unique. Create something interesting.
