With the use of a smartphone, a skirt shines in seven colors, and a magical costume changes color in various ways. The impossible has become possible through smartphone advancements in the photo and video features.
In 2013, there was a posted video of “Denka cosplay costume” that, unlike the fantastic Naruto Clothing that many cosplayers wear, it featured the shining skirt part of the costume of Tenko Hinai, the character of the Toho project. It shone in seven colors. The creator, Shizuoka who became a hot topic challenged it this time, it was linked with a smartphone.
“We have implemented a smartphone app that controls the color of the skirt, and you can now freely control the color change of the aurora part, adjust the gradation, rotation speed, etc.”
He also started the weapon “Hiso no ken” by Tenko Hinai. By installing an accelerometer on the sword, the skirt shines in conjunction with the pose where the cosplayer sets up the sword and the direction of the sword.
The 38 full-color LEDs adorn the costumes and swords in a way that is no longer a realm of art. Seeing is believing. I want you to actually watch the video and taste the impression that the color changes in real-time!
In the making, the flow from conception to implementation is published. Modeling is Mr. Dai who became famous suddenly with “I tried to make a stone mask with a 3d printer”, and the smartphone app is handled by Gomi of the technology circle “Techno Arta” to which Mr. Shizuoka belongs. From the modeling of the blade to the control device of the sword and the skirt, to the development of the smartphone application, you can feel the underlying power of the “Nico technical department” that has made “impossible” “possible” so far.
A Denka cosplay costume that realistically reveals a fantastic worldview and character. The possibilities of cosplay expression are likely to expand greatly again by technology.
