Here's the wave light but look around u might find it cheaper. It runs off battery so no need for cords but it does shut off after 1 hour but it's easy to turn back on. They need dim light to b visible but they r pretty bright (I used them for my pirate party)
Omg love it all....it's gonna b awesome!!!!
I tried doing the goblet of fire using tulle, a curling iron and spray sealer....but it just didn't work. What u might try doing is use a flame light but switch out the red/orange color lenses for blue..
Or u could try using something like the Aurora wave lights (it has 4 or 5 color options)...u could tape some celo-wrap to it (kinda like flames) then when u turn on the light the blue wave should bounce off the celo-wrap and loop like blue...
Love those!!! I considered glass myself but just couldn't figure out a way to get the hourglass look...I think wine bottles would definitely work...might have to use that e6000 to glue them together. As for the frame, my original idea was using long wooden plaques from the craft store with dowels and gears (all painted gold like the original...that might work out pretty good with the wine bottles (especially if u sandwiched 2 together for the top and bottom so u can cut out recesses like I did...
K here's the only pics I think I took during construction of the points counter. It was kinda a pain (making sure everything lined up) but not hard at all...and fairly inexpensive too.. the biggest expense was the glitter at $2.50 for each bottle (walmart)...don't use spray adhesive...IT DID NOT DRY CLEAR...I just used poly
Hey wanted to give u a few pics of the points counter to help u see how it kinda fit together...I can't post them on here so I'll pop them in my potter thread from this year....if u need anything though just give me a shout out :)
Keeping with the Halloween atmosphere I'll share my darker side. I am really fascinated with dark themes, death, gore, blood, guts, cults, monsters, bones, etc... Pretty much just about anything that a normal person would be shocked by. Does this concern me? No because I do not have any interest in practicing any satanic, occult or any other dark rites.
Visually, I am into subtle Halloween decor that looks realistic, accurate and of the proper era. I do not like props that are larger in scale or goofy versions of their real life counterparts (e.g. large spiders, etc...) or family friendly props. That's right... if I decorate, I want it to look real and authentic. I guess the best way to explain it is, a semi-minimalistic and subtle realism with an eerie undertone and spooky atmosphere. The psychological effect.

I enjoy atomic age, cold war and nuclear warfare related propaganda & art.
