Lux Staff

Placing Flex Modules inside cosplay props

Similar projects worth following
We are building a wide range of demos with Flex Module. Cosplay props are a natural use of Flex Modules. This is a costume involving an outfit and a wand. The wand utilizes Flex Modules for effects.

System Design

The goal is to show what is capable with our Flex Modules in cosplay.


The design of Lux is somewhat simplistic, but we will take care to reproduce the costume well.

The top and skirt are easily replicated, but getting the shoes and staff right are the biggest complications. Cynthia will be sourcing fabric and has most of the patterns copied.

In addition, she has the shoe wings replicated and is working on finding the right pair of boots to attach them.


The staff has stars on either end that shoot stars when casting. We will design pulsing RGB LED based star patterns to simulate this. In addition the staff will produce sound effects mapped to each type of spell cast.

Any software related will be released under BSD or MIT license. SAAS or cloud based software will be AGPL.

    The models look good, but their scale isn't quite right for Cynthia, so she will be shrinking the staff design some.

    We plan on implementing sound and lighting effects of Lux's Q,W,E, and R abilities. Lux's sound files can be found here.

    First, the pieces need to be smoothed out. The two best methods would be to either expose the pieces to acetone vapor or to coat it in "XTC-3D." Next, applying bondo to fill in imperfections. Once dry, the pieces are to be sanded smooth and even. Then, spray painted a base coat for paint to adhere onto. Lastly, several coats of colorful paint and a matte or glossy lacquer as a finish.

    We planned to build a small ledge inside the shaft of the wand to place the controls. It will implement a capacitive touch based 4 button system to cast the 4 major spells of Lux.
