Kinda like throwies, but for weird people.

Step 1: Obtain necessary components

All of the items used in this project came, as do many wondrous things, from the dump where I work. O.K. "sanitary landfill" if you must, but I think that's an oxymoron, if there ever was one. Here's a list:

1) Doll head. This is a Barbie head, which may, at some point in future, be used in a rip of jessyratfink's famous Barbie Doll Electric Chair project.

2) Led. I hope I don't need to describe at length, the operation of the light emitting diode. Let's just imagine that tiny imps dance on the little chip inside, casting off photons, in their frenzy.

3) CR 2032 lithium throwie battery. Also handy if your motherboard gets old and senile.

4) Ducky tape. I could respond to those who say "It's duct tape, ya tard", by embarking on a long and convoluted aside, on the history of the stuff. whether the original duck name came from being made of cotton duck, being used to repair amphibious DUKW vehicles, it's being waterproof, and so on, but hey, Wiki it for yourself. I calls it ducky 'cause there's a picture of a duck on it.

5) Super Duper Magnet. Purty, ain't it? This one, as I'm sure everyone can tell, is from a hard drive read head electromagnetic deflection positioning apparatus. OK. voice coil.
I was attempting to detangle my sisters 70's barbie's hair and let's just say she is now bald. Oops! Well I ripped off the arms and legs and I can't remember where I put them, but I still have the torso and head, so maybe I'll just do this!
I am gonna put an RGB LED in mine. Just like my Skull Glowies! <br>http://www.instructables.com/id/RGB-Skull-Glowie-Gather-the-materials/
You have a very entertaining way with words. <br>Good read.
Thank you very indeed.
Is there a way to turn on/off this thing? Once it's duck taped it's kind of permanent, no? I'm thinking for costuming - it'd be great to day of the dead these babies, and hang them from a sombrero...
Photon Emitting Near Infrared Semiconductor<br /> try to shorten that! (i laughed&nbsp;:D)<br /> im glad they went on with Light Emitting Diode :D<br /> anyway, its a nice one, i doubt however il be able to get some barbie head :D<br /> <br /> hey, heres a thought, use some permanent marker to give her some kind of war stripes :D<br />
i like you you seem to be crazy like me
Wow...very creative? Nice instructable, it's definitely unique!<br />
Its featured? All you did was put an LED in a barbie head!
But, did <em>you</em> put an LED in a Barbie head? Didn't think so... <br/><br/>Just look at that healthy orange glow. One can almost smell the phthalates oozing from Barbie's face, yum!<br/>
Photon Emitting Near-Infrared Semiconductor, oh that is so awesome, oh this has already been posted damn you mr beanyMvbeanbean! Seriously classic though!
I keep trying to think of a good acronym that involves ladies' areas, but get stuck at VAriable Gain...
VArial Gain Involving Negative actuators or (to use when describing you acronyms) VAriable Gain involving negative acronyms!
Or perhaps VAriable Gain INductor Array; or, to describe myself, Vagrant Gnu Invoking Naughty Acronyms.
Variable Amperage General Inductor/ Negative Actuator lol
sorry the convo was too long ago for me to remember the funniness of it, sorry =[ <br/>
I'm sorry if anyone is lamenting about some idiot reviving something old... but might I suggest "Variable Analog Gain Induced Natural Attenuation" ?
no Scaries at all just very funny
this would be great on one of my friends :p
This looks very cool, however it's a little too weird for me.
Heh heh.... P.E.N.I.S.... lol Good one, dude. I'm gonna use this and scare the mess out of my little brother.
Good. Somebody got that one straight up.
Oh, by the way, I hope by "I'm gonna use this and scare the mess out of my little brother", you mean the doll head thing and not the... never mind...
Sorry, I just couldn't resist that one...
Photon Emitting Near- Infrared Semiconductor Haha classic...
Hahahahahaha gotta love the acronym joke on the second step lol,very clever. Is it true?
That's for me to know and you to guess. Thanks for noticing it. I'm particularly proud of that one.
This is pretty cool. I had tons of fun with it, to save time I used a power supply. Here are pics:
Nifty. Trolls are way scarier than Barbies!
thanks. i love LED projects. I just grab something and mod it.
dude me too! I grabbed an LED, and added LED's to to it! yes, that's correct, and LED encrusted LED! WOOOHOO!
i'm gonna be having a shoulder surgery soon and <strong>I'M</strong> gonna get the surgeon to put LEDs in my SHOULDER! then <strong>I'LL</strong> be the blinkiest!<br/>
Oh my gods this is like totally... *cough* er... crap I was possessed by the prep again. Anyway! Super fun, I have a plastic shrunken head collection from last christmas' decorations (shush, I can decorate anyway I want) I'm totally shoving LED's in them and placing them around my brothers room while he's asleep, then turning off his TV night light. LOLOLOL<br/>
I'm gonna illuminate my paris hilton doll...
She might be too skinny to fit the led in. Isn't she scary enough without it, though?
Sweet. With enough red & green LEDs (and an endless supply of barbie heads) you could make some great Christmas tree light substitutes.
Someone really hate barbie... :D Or you just hete stupid stereotypes of woman?
Mainly I like spooky glowing things. ;)
Yeah! Who's up for a trip to China to stage a break-in at the People's Doll-Head Manufactory, to score a few thousand of 'em.
AHHHH! Creepy!
LOL - combine this 'ible with <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Motion-Sensitive-LED-Throwies/">the motion-sensitive throwie</a> and then fasten it to a gate or hang it in a tree...<br/>
I'm thinking of life size heads, stuffed with led Xmas lights, hooked up to one of those motion detector floodlight dealies...
Hehehe, awesome job!<br/>All these new Instructable LED<em>ies</em> are coming up, and they're awesome!<br/>Nice job, I do really weird things, and this might be added to my list! :-)<br/>
very good, imo, also ,(Photon Emitting Near-Infrared Semiconductor)=<br/>PENIS..lol<br/>
I calls it Gaffa-Tape :3
I likes that one too. Purists might poo-poo and say that gaffer tape is different, being usually non-reflective and non-residue-leaving when you tear it up, but who gives a? I say call it what 'cha want.
