What should I do with this bottle?

Hey there everyone!
So I bought this bottle here at a value village.
And I want to turn it into some sort of decoration for my desk.

Any suggestions on what I can do with this bottle? I was thinking of maybe making a Legend of Zelda potion or something, but I am open to other ideas.

maybe fill it with bits of polished glass? or colored sand? or put a small fake flower in it. thats all of the legend of zelda thing won't work.

Maybe you could make a fake fairy, put an LED or something in it and use it as a bottled fairy desklight sort of thing?

^ Definitely ditto on the mana potion bottle. I work at a Value Village; maybe I should be keeping my eyes open for stuff like this...

You could fill it with tonic water and stick a black light near it to have it glow.

@Kuroki: I was really looking for something anime or video game inspired, so I'm avoiding turning such a neat bottle into a simple vase.

@Bisected & PrincessKaori: I thought of a fairy too, but the opening/neck of the bottle is really small. Do you think it'd look funny if the fairy was so tiny? As I recall...weren't the fairies kinda large in relation to the bottles?

@generally everyone else: So...silly question. If I make a potion, any suggestions on what liquid or material I should use so that the thing doesn't gain mold if I just leave it on my desk?

Technically, I think most of the fairies' bulk was made up of their glow (since they're just balls of light in the 3D games). That's why I suggested using an LED.

If you want to make a potion, I'd use water with food colouring or paint and a bit of disinfectant (just to make sure nothing grows in it).

You are over-complicating things. Fill it with vodka, and drink before working on cosplay. Things will go better than expected.

Or worse, but you will at least have an interesting story to tell.

Yes, I checked to see if you were over 21 before posting this.

^This is the best suggestion I have heard so far. XD
Haha, perhaps I'll do just that. Fill it with blue curacao and make it glow.

The best part is, it is universally useful for all cosplays. Jussayin.
