    Hello,
    So I need a little help with something. I am planning on starting my Ral Zarek costume and I like to plan somethings out or even see if it is possible. So here is the costume.

    As you can see the cool part of the costume is the lightning and lights. I really want to make sure that the effect is there. I was curious if any one could help me out with the lighting in the chamber on his back. Maybe someone has done something similar. I haven't worked with LED lights in a costume before but I work as a high and low voltage electrician during the summers so I am not afraid to do any electrical.

    Yay, another Ral Zarek costume! The finished results of my speedbuild last halloween you can see here >http://www.therpf.com/f24/ral-zarek-mtg-costume-228191/. I really only did the lighting for the device at my side. For that I lined a bowl with aluminium foil, stuck the led in there, and capped it with a large magnifying glass. I covered the magnifying glass with some plastic wrap to give more of a distorted, electrical look. It did it's job with the time restraints that I had but you might get better results rigging up some sort of jar of liquid that you can shine a light through, just a thought.
