"... Let There Be Light ..."
And it was good!

I've finished installing the lights on my proton pack folks! Check it out:

I got four flashlights from the dollar store to use the reflectors in the "Cyclotron"

This is the "Cyclotron" where the four red lights will go.

This is the "Power Cell" where the blue lights will go.

I had to remove the ALICE backpack frame to install the lights.

This is the back of the pack without the frame. You can see where the red lights will go.

This is my cat Celie who was not helping me.

The "Cyclotron" lights installed with the reflectors glued to the plastic lenses and the lights cellotaped into the reflectors. Low tech, yes, but effective.

The "Power Cell" lights installed with some thin bolts.

The main circuit board for the whole lighting system. This was taken from inside the "Cyclotron" where the red lights are. The board is installed with the same thin bolts.

And here's the board from the outside of the pack.

And now videos!

Here are the installed "Power Cell" and "Cyclotron" lights before I put everything back together.


And here it is all back in one piece! (minus the gun, I need to put that back on)

Operational Status: Triumphant!

This is looking totally awesome. Good work!

I fell into a fit of giggles when I saw your cat not helping. Silly felines.

That's a damn fine-looking proton pack! Well done.

Hey thanks, Rob! I'll have plenty of other pictures of me in the entire outfit this weekend. I'm hitting a couple of Halloween parties.

That's so nifty! Gus asked when you're going to start building a Stargate? hehehe

Heh. There will most likely NOT be a Stargate Replica in my foreseeable future. Jess would seriously have a cow. And that would lead to awkward questions.
