When Enlighted Designs Inc. was commissioned to create LED dresses for several wax figures for the Glow Gala experience at Madame Tussauds NYC in Times Square — which opened in June 2022 — they turned to RC4 Wireless and their RC4Magic 2.4GHz line of products to help achieve the desired effects.
The centerpiece of the room is a re-creation of Katy Perry’s iconic 2019 Met Gala chandelier dress, which hangs from the high ceiling; Lady Gaga and Priyanka Chopra dressed in outfits inspired by their 2019 Met Gala looks, but with added illumination; and RuPaul wearing a lighted silver dress and wings, inspired by a classic Bob Mackie design.
All four of these “show stopper” dresses are programmed to pulse and change in sync with a multimedia music and lighting experience using a number of DMXpix dual string drivers.
Enlighted also added more subtle lighting to many of the other outfits in the room, including ties, LED buttons, and accents on other dresses.
