It's an LED in a hacked-up pill bottle! It's just held in place by friction; the hose is shaped to curve around my temple and down behind my ear The battery pack sits behind my neck, and is at this point not secured to anything at all and is prone to falling and taking the whole eyepiece with it. I should fix that.
cosplay contest <3 i was the one with the penguin hat. i remember waiting in line and squinting at the fine detail on the back of your collar xD may i ask what those lacey details are made out of...? i must have them for myself!
Hello! The lacey gold things are fabric paint - I drew out the design on paper to get it right, traced it onto the collar piece, and painted it. It's edged with the squeezy-bottle fabric paint you can get, to give it the raised edge (which I supposed also makes it look like lace!)
