Three Easy Steps To Make A Tesseract
Today we’re going to help you create a very easy, but effective Tesseract. This cosplay accessory is perfect for Red Skull, Captain America and Avengers cosplays, to name just a few.
You will need:
1 Cricket/Baseball/Tennis ball display case
1 Roll of wax paper
1 Can of frosted glass spray
Self sustained blue LED’s (quantity will vary with intensity of the LED’s and how bright you want the cube to be).
Spray the display case with the frosted glass spray, this gives the cube the perfect almost opaque look that you need. You will probably need to do this in layers so be careful leave it to dry for as long as it needs. Thinner even coats will work better, it takes quite a few so if you grab it to soon you will leave prints and ruin all your hard work.
Cut a piece of the wax paper, it will need to be enough to crumble in a way that will fill the entire display case – so don’t be too stingy with it!
Insert the LEDs, you can simply push them in but will want to make sure that they are inside the wax paper as this helps to refract the light and give the illusion of the energy flow inside the Tesseract.
Important Tip: I had some problems finding suitable LEDs I recommend looking for safety collar LED’s for dogs – strange but true!
