i'm looking for an idea to make and float ghost props on Halloween.

I've seen a couple instructables on ghosts in here, but not one that fit the bill. This year I tried a helium filled balloon with white material on it. The idea was to use an LED inside the white balloon, drape the material over the balloon and let it float in my front yard. Secure it with fishing string. But the lightest material I found was still too heavy for the balloon. The material wasn't cheesecloth, but as close to it as i could find. Any ideas or recommendations?

DIY (very) big bubble glass (acrylic or epoxy)

I just love these lamps from Axel De Witte: http://alexdewitte.nl/?p=44 Is it in any way possible to create similar very big bubble glass with either acrylic or epoxy or something similar? I have something in mind of a balloon in the shape I want and then spray painting it with epoxy resin or similar many times and then in the end remove the balloon inside.

THE SHOW

I just love the show. It is brilliant. Adam is really funny, and Jamey is always serious, they make one good team. I really liked the new episode "lead balloon myth"... Tell me something you like in the show, what is your favorite myth they busted, what do you think about the junior mythbusters???

Paper Mache Power Ranger helmet?

What ways can I make this? I've done the duct tape mold method, and the balloon method. I'm not sure if either will turn out nice. I see all these Iron Man and Halo helmet instructables but never a Power Ranger one. Can you help?
