Make Your Eyes Glow with LEDs

glowing eyes

Want to achieve wicked-looking, glowing eyes with a simple trick? Kamui Cosplay suggests wrapping LEDs around your head. I’d recommend pulling them farther apart than what you seen in the photo so the LEDs are more on your peripheral than right in front of your eyes. You could even achieve the same creepy effect if you pull the LEDs only to your temples. Kamui did state she wore the bright lights for about 30 minutes for a show without any issues. Here’s how she did it:

Many cool fictional characters have glowing eyes. Did you know, that it’s super easy to build this in reality? Just connect two LEDs, cover a part of the wire with silicone and glue these silicone stripes with skin glue to your temple!

It looks like an easier solution than wearing painful contacts, even if they can only be worn for a short time. You could even paint the inside edges of the LED to further block the light. However, if you’re at all worried about them hurting your eyes, skip them altogether.
