You don't have to spend $40 to get yourself a pair of glowing glasses... you can build your own.  This is a really easy hack for under $20 and it will get you a lot of attention.  This hack doesn't use cheap looking LEDs, it uses Electroluminescent Panels and it produces a really amazing effect.  You'll end up turning off your lights in your house and just wearing these.  Great for taking your dog out on walks at night or peeing in the dark.  Get ready to be the center of attention!

Step 1: The Magical Ingredient: EL DISGUISE

The magical ingredient is a new product sold on Ellumiglow.com called EL DISGUISE. 


The products are basically a number of electroluminescent disguises that are attached to a stick with an inverter.  They are meant as a photo booth accessories or just to cover up your face to fool around and have fun.  I was a little skeptical at first, but when I was playing with the ones I purchased I was having a lot of fun. Definitely received a lot of "wow, that's such a good idea" from my friends.

Ellumiglow.com currently carries four versions: red lips, green glasses, orange mustache (my favorite), and a blue bowler hat.  Normally one costs $20.99 but they were on sale at $15.99 when I bought them.  You will need to purchase the glasses for this hack, obviously.
