Concept:

I want to make a Halloween batman dog costume that has a flapping cape. I am going to use a continuous micro servo to pull the cape up and down, and use an accelerator to detect whether or not the dog is standing up or laying down, so that when the dog is standing up, the cape will flap, but when the dog is turned to the side, the cape will not move. I also plan on adding RGB LEDS around the batman symbol. I the costume to look like the cape is flapping in the wind when the dog is running or just standing up.

Continuous Rotation Micro Servo

Adafruit LIS3DH Triple-Axis Accelerator

Lithium Ion Polymer 3.7v Rechargeable Battery 2500mAh

Adafruit PowerBoost 1000 Charger

Black Hook Loop Fastener

Arduino Nano

20 RGB LEDS
