My Demonic Brigitte shield includes over 550 LEDs, has 4 different light animations and even a smoke machine build in! The design was made by Zach Fisher and is basically Brigitte from Overwatch in a custom Diablo skin. The shield is completely made out of EVA foam, is super lightweight and was mostly painted with airbrush colors from Vallejo. I’m really proud of the result and hope it might inspire you to get into crafting and fancy LEDs as well!
