I think that would also be super cool. It'd be reminiscent of the hypercolor
stuff. Maybe the only thing to check out for UV LEDs is intensity of output
vs. power input - my suit uses a shitload of power as it (like 1.4A I
think), and white LEDs give you one of the biggest brightness bangs for your
buck.

On a garment it could kick ass, but can you get LED sunburn from LEDs being
too close to your body? :). And super thank you to everyone for all the
compliments!
