therobotmonster: sirfrogsworth: Programmable LED fans are the latest thing in cosplay technology. The price of admission is pretty steep though. At $400 per fan, it will cost a pretty penny to become a proper wizard.  If you are like Wong and believe attachment to the material is detachment from the spiritual, buying these would contradict that philosophy. A cosplaying conundrum to be sure. Keep saving up those rupees I guess.  [ theRPF ] What intrigues me about this is the potential for small-budget films.  Like, that produces, on what I assume is at best a prosumer camera, a believably impressive effect, and the only drawback is the base being visible. I have to imagine a little compositing to hide the bases until the energy fields go up would be cheaper than CGing the effect for every shot.
