The Watchdog is invented by a friend of ours, and we would love to see this technology grow. It's a super strong cable that also glows! We've done some demo's in our office with the product and people love it! EL Cable has similar properties to EL Wire, but without the fragile angel hair wires. It's great for architectural purposes, events, dog leashes and more. The possibilities are nearly endless. Help us in bringing this great technology to market.

How To Build Your Own Light-Up Costume

First things first, there are a number of technologies that you can use, but deciding which way you want to go will save you some trouble down the road. We believe there are 4 main types of lighting options when dealing with costuming. LED's are great, but they have an inconsistent light, and it's overbearing and bright when used without any type of diffusion. We prefer to stick with the EL's which we call short for Electroluminescence. EL Panels and EL Tape are essentially the same thing, and make a great costume. They are thin, relatively flexible and can be cut.
