Wow nice, i'm telling my friend to make a pair! c: looks great!

Great,  It should be easy for you.

I used yellow because it is the color your eye is most sensitive to.
The blue is the base color for all ELighting as far as I know.

For speed .. in time for Halloween .. if you don't mind a bit larger handle
epoxy the plex rod next to the inverter and forget my step #5 nonsense.

Have a great one :-)
