Another successful attempt at incorporating light and illumination hardware into a costume!
I was sitting on the idea of a Lumiere costume for years. I just never had the time to sit down and actually figure out how the lights would work.
Turns out, it was pretty simple. I got three cheap post-4th-of-July Statue of Liberty prop flashlights. The bases were painted white to look like candles. Two of the flashlights were attached to yellow plastic bowls as the candle holders with a yellow sockish sleeves glue-gunned to the base of the bowls.
I took the third flashlight apart and used only the top part of the flame body. I glue-gunned a mini LED book light with a orange gel filter inside the flame. The then whole thing was fitted into a hole in center of the hat.
Race day was baking. Holding two flashlights with a sleeve covering my hands was pretty rough.
