Lady Gaga’s LED Matrix Mask from the VMAs was inspirational. I had to make one!

In this instructable, I’ll show you how I discovered the tech behind Lady Gaga’s LED mask, tweaked the design to be more appropriate for cosplay, and created the sine wave code for the LED matrix. I’ve included links to all of my research, references, and code so that you can follow along and make one too.

Watch me make the mask:

When I started this project, I had never worked with an LED matrix before so I was super excited to have the opportunity to go into a second dimension! Another big first was working with spandex — I also build the entire bodysuit and learned a ton!

To see how I made the custom spandex bodysuit, check out the instructable here.

This LED Matrix Mask is part of this complete cosplay:
