This project isn’t just for Star Wars fans, its for any cosplayer that has a need to re-create their favorite character’s sounds. Not all of us can replicate Chewbacca’s growl, or give a Tusken Raider battle cry. If your character has unique sounds, you can take your costume to the next level with a 4 button sound glove. Hidden under your costume, you can trigger 4 different sounds by hand, amplified by a small speaker worn around your chest. This project isn’t terribly expensive, nor does it require a lot of time. You can complete the sound glove in just a few short hours, with readily available tools.
The heart of the sound glove is the MP3 board. I purchased this item online at electronics123.com. It comes in 2 versions. One version is thinner, but requires soldering of the battery pack and control switches. The other version is a little thicker, but only requires a small flathead screwdriver to secure the battery and switches. All of the products used in this project can be found below the video.
Let’s get started!
