This has got to be the cutest video I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks to LED technology and the creativity of Royce Hutain, his 22-month-old daughter is wearing the most original Halloween costume of the year.
The video is made even cuter with the vocalizations of the little girl, along with the encouragement of her mother as she runs toward us — she’s an adorable illuminated stick figure, come to life.
Royce promises a follow-up video, showing us how he affixed these LEDs to his kid and made the whole thing work so beautifully. We’re looking forward to that. Meanwhile, this is not all the inventive guy has done with LEDs and transmogrifying attire. For instance, look at what he did with a horse’s head:
Beyond that silliness, check out the way Royce outfitted a skier with the tiny lights, resulting in a snowboarding, back-flipping stick figure from another dimension. Remarkable.

That’s a great idea! Inspiring. I could do some really cool live acted animations using this technique. Fun!
