Illuminate Eyes with LED

http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ln...l5ujo1_500.jpg

I am working on a wild tiger mask, and am trying to decide how i want to do the eyes. I need to be able to see, and at the same time i want them to glow without blinding me. Any suggestions on how I could go about placing the lights?

I've seen this done before, so this is just really an idea that I've never done myself. I saw a Jin-Roh cosplayer made is helmet just a bit bigger, then had the helmet's eyes above his own, and applied the LEDs, then he made hidden slots under the 'LED Eyes' so he could actually see.

In this case, since wild tiger has opaque eyes , you're going to have to do what ebay said, have a handler or just lift the visor up everytime your not posing or walking around

You can also put directional LEDs that mount beside and just forward of your own eyes and point through the mask eyes at a slight slant. It won't provide as much light from every angle, but it will allow you to (mostly) see.
