- Add another Arduino microcontroller for LED strips only.
- Battery holders.
- Apply waterproofing lacquer on circles and panel.
- Diameter of crinoline bottom hoop is 80 cm. Add an extra 100+cm of arc length of black paneling and tulle paneling to inner layers.
- Replace strip in bottom tube with side-emitting LEDs?
- 240 - circles (all used except one)
- 64 - 8x8 panel.
- 23 - strip 1.
- 23 - strip 2.
- 17 - strip 3.
- 84 (?) - strip along bottom tube.
Total: 451 LEDs.

- 8x8 cm WS2812 LED panel
- 5m, 30 LEDs/m, IP67, black LED pixel strip

- Layout of LEDs, waiting for items to arrive.
- Tested out LEDs under layers and on crinoline.
- Took apart seams of inner layers of black skirt to add extra panels to fit over crinoline.
- Measured skirt on top of crinoline. Extra panel with bottom arc length of 100+cm.
- Decided to go with 6 strips of 23 LEDs each. Cut one strip.

- Tested out LED rings. One wire was detached so had to be soldered on.
- Punched holes in crinoline, used zip ties to attach first LED strip.
- Took apart LED circles and tested FastLED programs.
- Set up LED circles, one strip, and panel together on crinoline and used zip ties to place everything but the panel on crinoline.
- Ran FastLED programs on everything together.
- Pictures posted by others to Facebook, RevSpace kiekjes, Twitter.
- Rearranged LED circles, mounted some back on with velcro. Mounted panel with velcro.
- Cut two more strips. Attached wires to one and mounted it horizontally at an angle.
- Folded up bottom hem and put velcro strips all across to partially make a tube along bottom.
- Ordered LED connectors (20 pairs, 3-pin).
- Measured and cut panel for black layer of skirt.
- Used fabric glue along bottom hem tube, in between velcro strips.
- Soldered wires to more LED strips.
- Soldered wires to remaining LED strips.
- Connected everything together, hooked up to an Arduino.
