Does anyone have any experience with fibre optics in cosplay. I have looked at guides and how tos, seems easy enough. Looking for different ways to use them, such as lighting them up and encorperating into fabric.

Did Quorra 2.0 with what was essentially fibre-optic lightpipe. [url]http://www.cosplay.com/costume/475473/[/url]

It was actually pretty easy to work with- LEDs at the ends of cut lengths of clear-core light-conducting pipe (this stuff. Unfortunately, now a retired item; [url]https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/10695[/url] ), simple wiring to a switch and battery, and heatshrink tubing to keep things in place.
And dammit, I am TRYING to find the build shots on my google drive, but they seem to have vanished or not have been properly shared to mine, as it was a job between both me and my boyfriend. We never put a tutorial up, but we did make a step-by-step of sorts for workmanship judging....
