    If this is in the wrong section, please feel free to move it.:doh:

    Made this in about an hour.
    Bought the light @ TRU for $2.
    ( Halloween section: Jack-O-Lantern Strobe Light )

    Painted dark gray and silver.
    Used duct tape for the outline of the design on the front of the lens.
    I had to diffuse the 3 white LED's inside using 3 sheets of tissue.
    Even diffused, it is very bright!

    Clear lacing is from Micheal's Arts and Crafts.
    ( to hang around neck and hide under t-shirt )

    I know it's not 100% accurate, but for $2?
    I ain't complaining :woot:
