    Just finished an accessory prop from another thrift store find. This is a necklace case that I found for $2. I added LEDS to the lid and wired it to a battery pack on the bottom. I'll probably corpse the skellie inside later. Thoughts, opinions?

    I am looking to achieve the a similar effect to that of which is used in Pirates of the Caribbean. I imagine small LED's might work but I am in need of some guidance!

    Hey Guys, I have a new LED FADER control for up/down fading of LED's. What's unique about this little controller is that it can output up to 5 amps of current, enough to power 200 standard LED's! The board can be powered with 8~12VDC depending on what you need for your LED's. Input voltage...

    Hey everyone. My wife and I recently found an interesting outdoor light at one of our local thrift stores, but the LED lights inside were corroded. Anne, knowing that I've worked with LED's before, wanted to know if I could rewire it. After some diagnosis, I know how I'm going to do it...

    Hello my fellow haunters and Halloween enthusiasts. A few months ago I was walking around my local dollar tree and something caught my eye, a battery operated LED tapered candle. So I bought a pack and some aaa batteries, put the batteries in, then found out the horrible truth. They were bright...

    This year the theatre group decided on a carnival theme for Halloween and they decided EARLY for a change, so I've been working on a carnival sign. Problem is, it looks wonderfully old and decrepit until I add the LEDs, which by nature are pretty and bright. Any ideas how to distress them to...

    Has anyone had any experience using the addressable pixel led's yet? I have a new project in mind that uses these. Thanks, Pete

    Well, here's the start to my version of a CC, gonna be more of a Cauldron Reaper. The usual spray foam for the coals but did a bit of a twist for the burning EFX. Used a 30 light string of regular orange LED's and a custom made 20 light string of red flicker LED's. The flicker LED's are like the...

    When using LEDs, what viewing angle do you prefer?

    I bought six different colors of prewired 10mm 12v LED's from Lighthouse LED's. Some of the colors are very bright, green and blue, and red to a slight lesser extent.. Others such as yellow, orange, purple, are pitiful. One yellow isn't even enough to decently illuminate a single skull...

    I've got a skull mounted on each of two large columns that flank my cemetery gate. I want to put red LEDs in their eyes and would like them to fade slowly (very slowly) on and off - maybe even with a few seconds between completely off and starting to fade back on. And, it would be great if...

    I know there is an abundance of info out there, but I cannot seem to find precisely what I am looking for. I have an old computer power supply that I use for lighting some of my pumpkins, and I want to make them flicker. I know that I could just add a flicker led to the circuit, but instead of...

    So I want to build an infinity mirror. HERES THE SMALL PRINT I want to know if its possible to build one the size of a door? Im curious to know if the bigger you go the less of the infinity effect you see. Also most people do 1 line of LED's what would it look like if you did a few lines of...

    I took photos while I was building my spotlights this year, so I made a little tutorial. Things you will need: 1/2" PVC coupler. 1/2" non-threaded PVC plug. Wing nut and bolt (I used 1/4-20, you would probably be fine with smaller). LEDs of your choice. You will also need the resistors for...

    I was planning on buying some basic super bright 5mm LED bulbs but wasn't sure how many I really wanted to get. Several people have posted different websites and the one with the best price was .18 per 5mm bulb. I've been looking around at bulk suppliers, and I found ways to bring them down to...

  19. Halloween Costume Ideas
    Hey I had an idea to use blue LEDs [ battery operated ] to illuminate a jacket and pants [ black of course ] to mimic the new movie costumes, but what about the light piping? How would I accomplish that to have the LEDs light it up from behind, and what would it be made from? and how to attach...
