**Masquerade version is now on Thingiverse as a Remix of this!! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1064014
*I modified this mask to house 25 5mm RGB LED lights (from adafruit) in the mask. I also added slits on the sides to add a strap. The battery holder holds 2 9-volt batteries.
For different voltage sources use this great resistor calculator to determine the correct resistors.
Natural or any other clear material.
Do not scale for original Replicator*
I used adafruits.com Diffused 5mm Slow Fade Flashing RGB LED. They are great for beginners as they don't require any programming skills. http://www.adafruit.com/products/679
-Check to see if lights fit in place as PLA has a tendency to warp
-Once you are sure the lights fit, glue them in place with a fast drying adhesive that works well with plastics
-Solder lights in place with their associated resistors
-To connect the mask to the battery pack, I used male/female DC Connector Size: Out-side diameter 5.5mm, In-side diameter 2.1mm. I used adhesive to mount this wire to the left edge of the mask passing right in front of my ear and down my back.
-I used a silicone adhesive sealant to seal all the exposed LED leads and wire.
Disclaimer: I make no claims that this mask is actually safe to wear. I am not liable for any injuries caused by electrical shock. MAKE AT YOUR OWN RISK
*Refer to pictures for the wiring diagram
-The stap is made by sewing 3/4" velcro strap made up of 3"of the "hard" side of velcro and the rest is made up of the "soft" side of velcro.
-I trimmed a piece of soft cotton from a fabric store. This is held in place with velcro sewn to it so it can be washed.
-To stop light leaking into your eyes causing flares in your vision, use a dark opaque material such as electrical tape to black out the eyes. as an added effect of the tape the mask become creepier.
