    How do I add lights to my armor

    Total newbie to the armor thing and I'm putting together a RotJ Dengar. What are everyone's thoughts on making a few of the buttons lights? How would you go forward with this?

    Simple way is to buy LEDs at radioshack and a little bit of wire (heat shrink tubing to seal connections). Check the voltage on the LEDs. Most are 1-3v. If you wire em in parallel, 2 AA batteries should work for 4-8 LEDs.
