    idea, take a circular incandescent lamp and ballast (available at home stores for about $10)...sandwhich this between two 1/4" pieces of clear acrylic (use nylon spacers, also at home goods store)...take a circular piece of mdf, cut whatever pattern you want into it (imperial, mandalorian, etc) and attach to the top piece of acrylic...you may want to buy some frosting spray for the acrylic so the lamp isn't so garrish...through the middle of all this you could run a bit of steel plumbing pipe to act as a support for the mannequin...cheers

    mine isn't so interesting... it's a dark grey square. the cool feature is something i picked up here years ago. it's a circle of aluminum about 1/4" thick and 18" diameter. it's got the fett skull laser cut out of it. that's on the base by boba's feet.
