Good idea?
Hey im...well at least thinking of doing clouds advent children cosplay (my gf doing tifa) were two people who wouldnt normally do it i.e kind of average shape and stuff.

When I decided to do it I was rushed with ideas for the costume, I really enjoy propping so when a character comes along who is from an rpg and has a bount of diffrent props and items i jumped at the though.

I really want to make a potion or pheonix down or other such item, i have the perfect glass bottle for it, im considering putting LED's in the bottom to make the liquid glow and make the shinra tag and well you get the idea, any other ideas for props and items?

What I would do is get a blue bottle and one of those LED press lights and work from there.

I have the real FF Potion drink that was sold at Lawsons in Japan, I bought it while I lived there. If you want I have pictures of it on my photobucket account.

If needed I can help make and or build this prop if you would like?

I have the same drink ^^ the ff12 ones in the lapis blue bottles (and one of the cans with the figures) erm its not really a must i just thought it was a good idea ^.^ its something i might do over summer as a little bit of fun (god knows i will have enough hard props to do i.e alucards guns)

Aww Alucard's guns aren't all that hard as long as you prepare and plan enough ^_^

I quite like the idea of it having an LED, maybe with some kind of resin around it so that it looks like it has liquid inside it that is glowing.

not to hard but im extrememly pedantic (sp?)

and yeah i was planning on having it as a working drink bottle so i could pop a drink in for the day and slowly use it and refill it, the led(s) would provide me with the glowing effect, i would work the led case into the design of the bottle and do something with the cap, as well as making the shinra label poss on computer.

That just gave me an idea.

Use one of those little water proof LED lights inside the bottle. You know they are the kind you find on key rings. Put it in the bottom of the bottle and fill with water. If you added glitter, it would enhance the effect. Add a bit of fishing line so you can get it out of the bottle without spilling the water.

Its worth trying fluid from blue snap bands/glow sticks as if you can carefully snap them then transfer the fluid to the bottle safetly, this will give you the desired effect but you must be careful. Most will last several hours and places like poundland sell thwm cheaply. Often this is what they use for neon glows in movies apparantly but I suggest practice runs and caution.

Be very careful with this. I've personally used this stuff and the chemicals are quite bad when coming into contact with plastics. (doesn't know if the bottles are glass or plastic) It actually melted a water pistol of mine that I wanted to glow.

Plus, it doesn't work very well in daylight and if you're planning on drinking from it, you might die LOL

Hence my caution but the blue stuff can be great in daytime unlike the others. The other thing you could do is buy blue night fishing floats and put them in the bottle in water. I have tried similar with the LED and it doesnt work well ><
