Hi,

I'm planning on putting together a fantasy costume for my first time going in costume, with a magic staff. I've seen some lights used in props + costumes, notably a number of GhostBusters with various lights in their proton packs, and a staff with a glowing crystal.

What kinds of lights would you suggest for costuming and where can they be found?

LEDs are preferred as they don't generate much heat.



Much thanks

Depending on the type of staff you building an easy solution is you used an LED flash light that is thin and put I into the base of the pipe you use as a rod and have it point up towards whatever the head is.

Other simple options.
