I need to make a thing out of LED lights. I have questions.

So, I am working on a costume build, and I kind of . . .blithely assumed I could do what I wanted and now I am, of course, realizing that I'm slightly out of my depth. I have tried googling but I'm not sure I'm looking at or for the right things. HALP? [more inside]

How did Seinfeld dress?

I grew up watching Seinfeld, but didn't really have a personal conception of style while the show was airing. I watch reruns, and I think that the costuming is sort of... "dorky 90s department store". However, I'm curious, when Seinfeld was contemporary, how fashionable would those clothes have been? What was being conveyed with the clothing choices of the main characters?

Geek parent meets high school theater -- there must be an app for that?

I've got a kid enjoying high school theater, and I'd like to help. My skills do NOT run to hammers or sewing machines, but I can work Chrome / Google Docs / databases like a pro. The costume designer is wishing for a way to track student measurements, costume notes, and pictures / photos in some sort of online / app format for going to fabric stores and keeping track of sewing progress. She's coveting an iPad mini to use with it, so I guess an app would be fine. I'd prefer a Chrome / Google Doc option, because I'm cheap. LOVE to hear from costume designers / wardrobe coordinators who've figured this out. Extra credit points for people who know how to create a costume database for completed costumes after the shows.
