red led light?

Any chance someone could find me two? I keep looking on various websites, including ebay, but can't seem to find any small ones that I could use. If it matters, I'll be using them for Velvet's ( Odin Sphere ) Psyphers, just to make them glow.

You mean like this one?

There are a lot of models of red LEDs ranging in different specifications. Do have any that you are particularly looking for?
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.

If youve never played with LEDs before, I would suggest getting a multipack so that you have extras. The first time I started messing around with them I blew out a few LEDs just playing around.

If you don't want to deal with the wiring, there are dozens of pre-assembled LED devices out there, some of them super cheap. You've just gotta get a little creative with re-purposing what you can find.

I've had pretty good luck with finger LEDs - bought a big pack of 'em off Amazon.

The most recent set I got had colored LEDs, but I've bought some in the past that are just plain white LEDs. They're compact and relatively bright, and last a pretty good long time. In some of them the batteries are changeable (but the batteries may cost more than a new one with fresh batteries). In some of them they're glued together and the batteries are not changeable; you just toss 'em out when the batteries are done, and put a new one in your prop.

I've also used the LED light assembly out of a candy/toy thing like this:

It's red (just right for Velvet's Psyphers), extremely bright (like, uncomfortable-to-look-at bright) and the batteries seem to last a long time. If you disassemble it, there's a little gobo/lens that makes the projector shape (a ghost or smiley face or whatever) - take out that piece and it's even brighter. Get one from the gas station or grocery store for a couple bucks.
