Next step would be custom made controller with cheap RS232-BT bridge (will be far less than half the size) and WS2812 LED strips, right?
And a longer skirt would distribute the light better at the outside of the legs.
Maybe attaching the strips via Velcro would be a good idea to be able to quickly remove the electronics for washing.

This is an excellent build... Saw your first one which was rather on the bulky side, but now you've slimmed it down a bit, which makes the design easier to wear. Maybe for your next version, you could incorporate it all into a 3D printed belt, thereby eliminating the box altogether :)

Wonderful device. I can see it being used in many costuming applications.

The belt buckle battery/circuit board is a fantastic idea. I can see myself using his for many builds.

Nice device. If you want something simpler than phone control, there is a device called a "rotary encoder" (adafruit 377). It has a center push switch and a pair of switches that click differently depending on whether you turn it clock-wise or counter-clock-wise. I've seen it commonly used for radios, where you punch it once, set volume, punch it twice set balance, punch it three times set treble, and so on. One could do that with NeoPixels where the various modes would be like: change brightness, change color, change blink pattern and so forth. And you can have the encoder on the center of the front of your belt buckle with a flower shaped knob or some such to make it decorative.

Great writeup! Thanks for taking the time to be so detailed! This give me some great ideas for a project I am working on!!

Great writeup on imgur, pretty work!

I use Sketchup for cad. It was easier than Tinkercad except the free version doesn't have any boolean operations. Tinkercad does. But you can import stl's into tinkercad for those though I never have. I just draw what I need or difference out stuff with scad.
