katy perry



We've created several pieces for pop star Katy Perry, including the lighted outfit that she wore for her performance of "California Gurls" on the MTV Movie Awards in June 2010.

For this project, her stylist supplied the Daisy Dukes and bikini on top, and we installed nearly 1000 individually hand-mounted LEDs.

We also created the rainbow-colored LED sunglasses that Katy Perry wore at the beginning of the song, as she descended onto the stage on a surfboard.

Enlighted also helped to create some lighted stage props for Katy Perry's 2009 tour.

For her inflatable stage set, we built flexible fabric-based cat eyes that were illuminated with blue LEDs. We also created the lighting for her glowing color-changing mic stand. The overall look of the set and mic stand were designed by tour production company Frank the Plumber.

Both the eyes and the mic stand included a standard DMX interface, so they could be controlled as part of the professional stage lighting system.
