Glowing Ghost Costume for a Child

My 6 1/2 year boy designed this ghost costume. He said he wanted light on it to appear as if he was floating in the dark.

I made the costume using 8 layers of Tutu fabric and a set of LED lights.

It is pretty simple to make. I cut the tutu in squares and and I attached the LED lights on one of the layers.

The cost was about $65 CND LED are quite expensive.

We received a lot of complements and I did not have to worry about losing my son in the darkness.

      Love this costume! Did you just wrap the lights around your son or were they sewn in? Also where did you put the battery pack?
