7th May 2013: El-Wire Since I'll be wearing this again as part of an Ace Attorney cosplay group at October's MCM Expo, I thought I'd try experimenting with el-wire to make the visor glow.
The results weren't encouraging.
Even with the highest voltage battery hooked up to it, the el-wire doesn't glow bright enough to visible through the red sheet placed behind the visor. There's a faint red outline that can be seen when in a darkened room, but not a sufficient amount of glow. Anything brighter than el-wire would be TOO bright for me to see through and therefore render the visor impractical to wear in a crowded area.
Ah well, it was a fun experiment but for now I'll have to file this one under 'F' for 'FAILURE'.
