About

Hey!

I am Zetta. I started this Kickstarter to to help raise funds for design and production of LED fursuit collars and harnesses.

This is the second design of the X style harness and collar.

Improved connectors and LED reliability at the cost of an extra connector.

The LEDs are RGB, comes with a remote control so you can make them flash, fade, a solid color, or go to the beat of the music. There are 4 options for the music control. There is an adjustment for brightness via the remote control, and the same buttons adjust the music sensitivity in music mode. The whole unit is powered by a rechargeable battery pack inside the suit, though it can be adapted for use with or without a suit. The straps are 2 inches wide on this set, and are white for the best color bleed-through.

There are color options available for the strap material, however I feel white is the best for the LEDs to shine through.

Available colors for LED strap material:

Blue, Burgundy, Gray, Green, Lime, Orange, Red, Tan, White, and Yellow.

Plastic buckles come in white or black.

Aluminum buckles available for an increased price.

Non-LED strap material colors:

Black, Dark Navy Blue, Dark Red, Forest Green, Hot Green, Hot Orange, Hot Pink, Hot Yellow, Khaki, Light Red, Navy Blue, Olive Drab, Pacific Blue, Pink, Pumpkin, Purple, Raspberry, Royal Blue, Silver Gray, Tan, White, and Yellow.

Metal hardware (O-rings, D-Rings, and Slides) can be powder coated in these colors:

Blue, Candy Apple Red, Candy Blue Raspberry, Candy Chili Green, Candy Lime Green, Candy Orange Liqueur, Candy Royal Purple, Charcoal, Flat Black, Gloss Black, Green, Gunmetal, Lime Green, Olive Drab, Orange, Oxblood, Purple, Red, and Yellow. 

I am working on building another design with the standard harness design. Getting that to work with LEDs is going to be a bit tricky, but I am able to make custom sets without LEDs. I will get an example up once I finish my set. Sets without LEDs are fully adjustable. The material is 1.5" wide. Many colors and options to choose from.

The major cost in these things is the battery pack and sound controller. I am researching other options.

Backers will get first pick on a set of their choice. The rewards are basically discounted finished set for helping me to get materials together and get my idea out there.

Backers also get, in addition the the rewards, my eternal gratitude and thanks.

I am still working out international shipping. If you are not in the US, but are interested in supporting or requesting a set, please send me an email at adumbrationkitsune@gmail.com

Risks and challenges

The design process is an ongoing project. New designs and ideas will be posted regularly throughout the process.

The only major drawback is that the unit is not self contained. Due to the LEDs and the controller requiring 12V, the power source and controller connect to the unit via wired connectors. I am researching use of other LEDs and controllers, but have found these to be the most reliable.
For the collar and X harness combo, there are 3 connectors run to a single controller.
Plans for the standard harness are to get it down to 1 connector.

International Shipping is another challenge. I am currently in the process of deciding the best and cheapest rates for outside the US. The addition of lithium ion batteries complicates the issue as well. I am looking into regulations on shipping these materials and will provide updates when it is figured out.
