Step 6: Final Thoughts

So now you have all the steps you need to create the disco ball hat.  Pretty easy huh?

 I had toyed with some ideas of things to add to the hat.  Such as attaching lasers or LEDs to shine on the ball.  Or lining part of the hat with EL Wire.    In the end I decided to keep it simple, but I encourage anyone who might try this instructable to come up with a cool way to add/modify it.  I'm sure some of you will :)

For more info on the hat and the costume I wore it with you can check out my recently started blog


Thanks so much for reading my first instructable.  If anyone does build one of these please send me a message or even better some pictures. 

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 ...
awesome ! gona do this for my crazy hat party
