[Question about diffusing light] ... Making a Tron costume. How can I diffuse the LED lights to look more smooth? Answered
Alright, so I'm making a Tron Legacy outfit for NY Comic Con in a few days. It's a spin-off of Kevin Flynn's black robe, which is basically a robe with a light on the borders of it. Pic below.
Now, for many reasons, I'm using LED strips instead of EL wire. The problem is that the LEDs are so bright that each individual light shines clearly through the white shower curtain that I'm using.
Do you guys know of any really good ways to diffuse this light so that it looks smoother? When I lift the curtain higher from the strip, maybe about an inch, it becomes more diffused. But since I will be sewing this to my garment, I'm not 100% sure how to keep the shower curtain higher above the LEDs at all times.
Any enlightenment would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
