Daytona Magic Sells a version. I do not think you have a choice on the color of lights, though.

There is a paper bag on the market for the lights, on is $35 and one is $200, which one do you think works the best.

Your next choice is that you can make one yourself. Radio Shack has all the things you need to make on yourself. In Pittsburgh they should have a vocational/two year college, ask a teacher to help you put it all together. If someone you know can sew, you are all set.

Stevens Magic has it also, the price is the less: http://www.stevensmagic.com/index.php?ma......kfdkaov7

Go to Michael's and get the seed light set for making Christmas Wreaths. They are battery operated and about $3.00. There are color choices.

I have used them for many years. They are quite effective on unsuspecting audiences.

Or -- you can have some made with special patterns and messages in Las Vegas -- for about $1000 each for a hank size - a little more for a full curtain. (LOL)

Another approach might be to buy a rhinestone setter (probably about $25) and forget the electric part -- setting the stones the way you want them generally. Stones can be acrylic and inexpensive too -- or Swarkovski (?) Crystal if you have a bigger budget.

Another plus here is to be able to make special message props for bigger clients -- at an additional fee of course.

LOL!

For many years, I have used these battery operated light sets to identify a chosen card. There is even a blip in Linking Ring at some time about my card revelation and being lit up like Las Vegas.

There are about 20 lights in a set and they are easy to use.

UGM in Japan sells them, but they're about as expensive as Daytona. Still, you have a choice of red, blue, or multi-color lights. And UGM tends to sell quality items. (Nothing against Daytona -- I've never bought from them, so I can't judge.)

Bob -

Years ago, when I bought a battery operated light set from a craft store, it ran off of 2 C or D batteries. I think each light string had about 10 bulbs in it.

Do the current ones run on button cells, so they are lighter and more compact?

Because you'd never be able to make this item yourself (as you are suggesting) with those standard battery operated light sets that I once bought at a craft store.

You have to use 5 or 6 sets to make it yourself. That's a lot of bulk and weight for a dozen D batteries. Even a couple of D batteries for a 24" foulard seems unwise.

Mine use two AAAs and have at least 20 lights. Adding more to the same power pack would be no problem. Juice has never been a problem for me anyway. (The power pack is smaller than two cigarettes.) The lights shine either through the back of my tux jacket or the front of my shirt. It depends on whether I'm working in a Tux (Black tie) or a blazer.

I don't think what you have is the seed light. But I have tried to use what you described. I liked it because the bulbs are replaceable, but mine are not the long pointy screw in bulbs. (And they are brighter! There is also a switch for flashing or constant on.)

PS --- Jim Wilder here on The Café has seen me perform it and even wrote it up many years ago.

So, you are talking about lights used on / under clothing, rather than on / in a foulard?

Donald,

That is how I have used them over the years. However, I have no reason to believe that they would not work on the foulard. Cloth is cloth.

Ah, I was wrong. UGM's is quite a bit more expensive (especially at today's exchange rate.)

I did check WalMart for the lights. My local store had them and they were less than $3.00 for 20 lights in a set that were battery operated. The only two color choices were all white or assorted (4 color rotation).
