    Kind of fails, not if you put some lights in there. :D

    So...... A plastic bag over our head. Can we say, Kids don't try this at home.

    My friends already call me a geek... BUT THIS IS SWEET!

    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).

    I have never seen a LED with a metal base....

    *coughs* *cough* this looks like a condom *cough*

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

    Haha, doesn't one leg have to be shorter than the other? J.k Cool costume.


    Scary. Real scary.

    hahaha! that was really cute!! funny costume! :D as "bofthem" said, you should break the instructable into steps, but anyway, thanks for sharing :)

    Ha ha! That is so cute.

    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:
