This ring creates the illusion of a spike going through your finger, although the ring is SO lightweight you probably won't even feel it. **This project DOESN'T use actual spikes, they're just simply cone bead caps! Much easier to find than real spikes.

    I love this idea so much, I tried it, but ended up supergluing all of my fingers together!
    haha, I will have to try again with different glue.

    How marvelously excellent!

    Hm, I'm thinking this could be even more fabulous if the ring on the underside of the finger was "hidden" with a little costume latex, à la this instructable. That way the illusion would work from more angles… but it would be a bit more of a hassle.
