Step 5: Add Glitter

Now finish off the hat by spraying glitter evenly all over the hat. If you get glitter somewhere you don't want it (like on the badge) it can be easily wiped off with a paper towel.  It'll look a little foamy/frosty at first, but give it time to dry and I think you'll like the effect.

If you are more patient than I, you may want to do this step first.  Just know that it take a few hours for the glitter to completely dry, and you won't be able to handle the hat until it dries.
I agree with marolyn about the light source of your hat. That's cool but you should keep your instructable here and not link to another site with information that should be here so we don't have to do a run around
Where is the light source coming from for the ball?
in the vid, it looks like 2 laser pointers from above the hat.
Im going to use this for my halloween costum im going to put the disco ball in my hands because im creating a party Robot, but its not like a bunch of squares, im shaping sheet metal to make me look like the guy in the new video game coming out soon. Vanquish
 Neat!  If you went all out you could produce a room full of seizures!
I agree. I have epilepsy and have to shield my eyes from flashy things. If I was under the hat though I would be creating them, not getting them :)
How about setting your next hat to open the top and have the disco ball lift out from the hat when you push the button?<br />
I like that idea... an interactive disco ball ...
