I am going away to a festival next Friday and im trying to make a costume for it. I want to make a stick man costume with 5050 LED's but i also want it to strobe at whatever speed i want. I know very little about circuits but my friend is studying engineering in uni and he said he would help me. I thought i would post on here and see if i can get any help.

this is what i want it to look like but with a strobe effect instead of just on/off.

thanks in advance

Depending on the voltage of your led supply, you can use a 555 astable circuit to pulse the leds on/off with a mosfet transistor .
