panting tap light / light bulb cover

This is for a Leona [league of legends] cosplay.

basic reference:

art with glowy bits:

I'm thinking that making the circles glow would look really cool-- she's supposed to be all sunfire and whatnot.

so my idea was tap lights [cheap if it doesnt work out!]

there are 2 different kinds I could find:
1)

2)

I feel like the LED light will be brighter and better to see, but I might need a way to diffuse the light AND make it more yellow which im unsure about. im thinking watered down paint of some kind and/or yellow plastic wrap might work.. but I have to touch it to turn it on, I can be careful but I dont want it to crack.

..or maybe theres a better alternative altogether!! ideas?

Difusing

just get some n600 sand paper and sand the inside and outside of the transparent plastic if you can take it apart easely.

Thanks for the suggestions... I didnt know those flatwire panel things existed!! they look promising. I was mostly looking at a tap light because I dont want to make my own circuit, but those might be better!

Yeah me either until recently! I've never used them before so I can't review them. But they look like they would work well enough and lighter weight than a tap light.

I can't attest to the flatwires, but I've purchased quite a few LED/lighting products from save-on-crafts.com and I would highly recommend the site, especially for lighting newbies like myself.
