I am in love with this costume...where did you even begin to make it?! I am planning on making a whiplash costume and seeing this I'm just like 'Oh my god, how the hell could I ever compare?!'

^.^ Thanks, I think that's one of the most ego boosting comments I've gotten!
This was one of my 'psychosis' moments; where I get some little idea of how to do something, then I can't do anything else until I've gone and done it. It started with the whips... T.T I went 'Hey, I know how I could make them glow!" and it was funny for like five minutes, then twenty minutes later I had full sketches of the wire layout and a list of parts I needed and I couldn't sleep.... This happens to me sometimes.

But that aside; GO DO IT! Once you've got your hands in the parts, It's fucking fun and these things always turn out better than you would think. Especially If you have competition *wink*

Well, The lights themselves are rope lights from home depot housed in hollowed out lightsabre handles. they're plugged into a power inverter (housed on the back) that then hooks to a 12volt drycell on my belt. Good news: It makes noise and it looks cool without having to be actively plugged in to a wall. Bad news: Average 12volt dry cell will only get you about 5 minutes of light time before needing a recharge, and somebody else has to turn it on.

Looks awsome :D What'd you use for the chest plate tho?

The chest plate.. hmm Depends on which part you're talking about. The whole of the Vest is upholstery Vinyl over a plastic mesh base. The body of the arclight generator piecey thing is a dismantled car speaker and an 8mm movie reel with the same light cord as the whips wound through it. The hanging doodilies (gotta love technical terms) are severed sections of a soda bottle holder rack (the kind the bottles get delivered to restaurants in).

Thanks for commenting, and I love answering questions ^.^
