Light Up Sims PlumbBob Costume #ElectronicHalloween

FG8KP36GFRWQTOS.MEDIUM

Mrsayao did a really great job on this Sims PlumbBob tutorial. For Halloween I’m very tempted to be a Sim that wears wearable electronics aside from the plumbbob. This project is perfect on its own or in a group. You could draw straws for Sim personalities!

I was able to leave the light on for about 6 hours straight without changing the 2 9V batteries. A word of caution, this costume is meant to be worn at night, the light is faint when seen in the daylight, see the 2nd pic what happens when a flash is used. I used 3 LEDs and stuck to the typical 350mA current specified by the manufacturer. Adding more current will simply burn them out faster so don’t do that =)
