HAHA, that's funny. Very creative. my 2 cents... make the bottom round, so it's more like an every-day type of LED. Also, pull one of your pant legs down so that it looks like one leg is longer than the other (anode/cathode).

This works especially well if you have one leg longer than the other.

Would you mind breaking this out into steps? This is a really cool costume, but the instructable won't get much attention at only one step.

If you would prefer to simply post the costume in its finished state, you can put up a new post in the Halloween contest forum: https://www.instructables.com/group/halloween07
