I want to put LEDs in the base and platforms to make them light up... does anyone have any recommendations for the recommended wattage
for mini LEDs to light up and be visible in day light?
Also any recommendations for where to buy these lights would be great.
Which version are you building? If you make the eyes out of LED's that are viewed directly, you won't need much wattage at all. If you're trying to illuminate a translucent unicorn horn, you'll need more punch- I'd look at getting a 1 watt or greater LED. 1W LED's are generally too bright to look at directly without getting spots in your vision, but for indirect lighting they're great.
I've used SuperbrightLEDs
for this sort of thing, and they sell pre-wired LED's that you just have to hook up to 12V worth of battery and you're all set. If you buy loose components you'll have to solder them together with resistors which also involves a bit of math.
