Dressing as a wizard, mage, or a Harry Potter character? This magical flame prop is just what you need to show off your spell-casting skills. Made by Etsy seller Jo Roberts’ Eitanya Designs, this creative prop is wearable and makes it look as though you are controlling flames. The lights come in a variety of solid colors, or you can choose rainbow option that changes. Roberts says:
These are crafted from PETG plastic and hand-colored and blended for a wispy, magical fire effect. The super-bright light is provided by a removable dual-sided light pod, which is shatterproof, waterproof, and uses replaceable CR2032 batteries. Standard size for the clear hand strap fits up to 8″ around and is designed to be slightly loose. Flames are reasonably durable, but please note that these are not intended for children (I’m working on a kid-safe version!)
