A few months ago a friend gave me an EL Wire dog leash but had pretty much striped it down to the bare EL Wire and battery box. So for months I was unable to think of any thing to use it with until I saw the EL Wire contest and finally figured out I could use it with my oxygen mask.
This instuctable should be easy enough for any one to do.
Also I would like to thank ever one who viewed and voted for my last submission for the usb contest
Step 1: Lets Get Started, Gather Your Supplys
You'll need some sort of oxygen mask with a tube, just mask sure there are enough air hole in the mask since you will be plugging up the tube.
One EL Wire dog leash, or you can purchase EL Wire from http://thatscoolwire.com/ along with a battery pack.
marker (if you want)
ruler or tape measure (if you want)
hot glue gun
also you will need some epoxy with / instead of the hot glue (edit)
Now if you couldn't find the dog leash el wire you will need to contruct your own el wire with battery pack set up, but you should be able to find the dog leach for under $20.
One important note make sure the el wire is as long or shorter than the tube because its alot easier to cut the tube.
Step 2: Disassembly / Assembly
Step 3: Measure Twice Cut Once....crap
Now when you reach the end cut the tube about and inch or so way from the wire, in my case I needed yo leave a little room so i could stick the cap in from the cut portion of the tube. The cap is the part that connects the tube to the mask.
Step 4: Glue It or Loose It
On the other end (picture 4) figure out how much you want between your wire and cap then trim off any excess tube you have fill the end of the tube with hot glue and jam the cap into spot holding it in until the glue cools down and hardens. I glued the end so no moisture will get into the wire as you breathing in this mask and trust me you get one hell of a shock from this.
Step 5: YOUR DONE
Depending on what your looking for you can keep going, spray paint the mask, glue some gears onto it, the sky is the limit.
The extra pictures are me wearing the mask an hour ago in some of my haunted house costume and the other 2 pictures are from last years haunted house showing how i'm updating the costume.
Feel free to ask me questions, give me suggestions this is only my second intructable so please give me some feed back.
edit i broke it tonight the wire is shorting its self out like it did when i first got it, but at least it lived long enough to be posted
