    Not bad for a quick Halloween costume piece. A little crude, would have been nice if the whole thing lit up instead of just one strip down the middle. I made one for a little kid once in the hospital. I used a dollar store tap light, taped it up and spray painted the body silver and used a paint marker to draw the design onto the "lens". I drilled 2 small holes in it and put small twine thru it so it would hang around his neck under his Iron man shirt. He loved it! biggest cost was the batteries, changed out the cheap ones from the dollar store so it would last longer.
