I was thinking about Halloween and i can see every body is making costumes and i thought that no one thinks about the basket. It comes in different shapes but not "high tech", so i came up with this idea. I think that it is going to drag the attention as well as the costume.

Step 1: Materials and tools
It wasn't hard to make that project. All i needed was:
Semi transperent glass (cuted with the shape of the baskets bottom )
LEDs (slow fade RGB in my case)
4 AA Baterries
A box proper for the baterries
and some drawin skills :)
Step 2: The " tunel "
The size of the mirror was 45cm. I've put some LEDs to see what distance between them is going to look good and 2cm seened to be ok. This way i needed 21 LEDs with 21 51ohms resistors. I've got the sheme from www.ledcalculator.net
Step 3: Battery box
The box i've used is from an old cassette box because it was fitting perfectly for the size of the batteries. Added switch and some wiring and i've putted on the bottom of the basket with some wire.
Step 4: From the outside
When i finished this i though that is too simple and empty from the outside and this was what i came up with.
Step 5: And there it is
This is the basket i would go out when Halloween comes
