Introduction: Easiest Arc Reactor.

Not really a step-by-step, just an idea that I'm gonna do for Halloween.

Step 1: Buy.

Step 2: Make.

Cut the mouthpiece off a blue balloon, about an inch up. stretch this over the top of the LED light, tight enough to where there isn't a big bulge, but loose enough not to push the center button without your help.

Step 3: Wear.

The easiest is to tape it to your chest, like I have in this picture. It hurts a little. Another idea would be to use the hook on the back of the light, and wear it like a necklace. Or you could do what other people on Instructables have done with theirs, and sew a pocket into the inside of the shirt. Good luck, and have fun!

    great idea! I ended up finding this on Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/SE-Camping-Travel-Emergency-Light/dp/B0020MZ70O/ref=lh_ni_t .....but only after I bought these http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fulcrum-Light-It-9-LED-Anywhere-Light-XB-3-Pack/15048685 , in either sense, I'll try them both out and likely use the inside sew-in pocket method. Thanks!

    I got the one from Walmart in today as well as the one from Amazon. The Amazon light has unbelievably poor quality, as not all of the leds work and it's more of a pain to crack it open and get it to work, plus i only paid $4 for it, so I'm ok trashing it. The Walmart light comes in a triple pack and works great, plus there's 3 of them. It's gonna be a slightly smaller arc reactor than the one pictured here, but it'll work

    I don't mind the number of Arcs, each one kinda builds on the last. But it would be nice if we started showing some that looked like the real thing, rather than under the shirt. Nice and simple on this one. Would never have thought about using a pre-made light.
