Hokey Spokes


” Hokey Spokes Hokey Spokes are transparent “”blades”” that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and custom text appear.

The user can decide how many spokes in a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 “”Blades”” can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds. 2 Blades/Wheel look good, 3 Blades/Wheel look great, and more than three look amazing.

Hokey Spokes are designed so that they fit virtually any mountain or road bike with a wheel diameter of 24″” or greater. Hokey Spokes can be used on front and back wheels at the same time.

Each Hokey Spoke contains a number of designs and messages. The blades can cycle through all the designs or can be set to play a custom text message all the time. Play mode is selected by using one of the waterproof keys located on any blade.

I also create handmade LED light up clothing, jewelry, hair ornaments and headpieces, which are perfect for looking great AND being safe at night.

And even better, I do all kinds of custom and one of a kind fantasy and historical costume creations– I believe in making people’s costume dreams come true!

I’ll also be participating in Prepare for the Playa in San Francisco — everything you need for a great burn! July 25 and August 18 at Cafe Cocomo at 650 Indiana Street in SF. Come see my lovelies in the fashion show, and learn how to install your own LED lights in clothing and costumes!”

“Bunnywarez is run by M and Jovino; two bunnies from Oakland, California. M’s first year on the playa was 1996, and Jovino’s was 2000. Our four year old business sprang from our love of creative costuming. Everything we make is created with outdoor parties and camping in mind. We love playful, furry style, and all the things you see on our site are our own original designs. We strive to make all of our garments both fun and functional.

Our super cute animal jammies – for grownups – feature deep pockets, long double-ended zippers, and adjustable elastic at the ankles. They are cozy and adorable, while being extremely practical!

We also offer faux fur hats, which are fully lined and cut long in back to warm your neck; as well as fleece-lined faux fur wristiecuffs with roomy stash pockets, and the ever-popular legwarmers.

Kittygirl (and -boy) alert: we have cute clip-on ears and furry kitten mittens too!

We take pride in saying that all of our items are made with love in Oakland California. We hope you’ll have as much fun wearing our creations as we do making them. Remember to mention Burning Man for extra goodies in your order!
