IMPORTANT NOTE: Your flashlight MUST be LED based. therwise it will melt or set-on-fire your fabric.

Because I felt like it.

Do you think it's possible to make this around a tea-light on a ring so it's wearable?

Nice idea. Must be looking awesome from distance at night and totally safe.
I'll try this next season (with addition of electronic "blinker" for dinamic changing brightness of the LEDs).
Thank you for sharing!
I think it will also double as nice "flaming canonnballs" for my CO2 launcher.

Can you use this method for a blue flame?
Magpieb0nes's avatar
sure! you could do any colors you want just remember to use your lightest color tulle/fabric in the innermost layer

Okay, so how much for the fireball spell?  Looks cool, so long as I can throw it (or at least hold it) in LARP.
