I went to a con over the weekend, and I saw some awesome clips as in the title. Basically, they were a small power source, a light, and fiber optic cable. I want to make some for next year for myself and my daughter.

Thing is, I can't find the stuff I need. I also don't know how to go about it. I'd like to have them so I could put some into our hair, and then weave them into our dread falls (felted wool - adding more "dreads to 'em).

Ok, I am not completely sure on this... but there seems to be kits out there that you can assemble. Which would allow you to learn how to do it...

Is there a specific reason that you want to make vs. buy them? (did I just faux pas on craftster?)

But, you can buy whole bunches of them for like 5 bucks, without the hassle of trying to make them.

My husband does a lot of hobby work with electronics, so in *theory* I could build a motherboard with the crap we have around here. Plus, I want to be able to make some that are made to fit proportionately to a 7 year old, and some that fit me. Plus, running it through our dread falls so those light up, too.

I have lots of ideas, but at the moment, I don't know how to go about it fully.
