You are thinking way too complicated, man. Think simpler.

Maybe in appearance, but not in function.

Yes, your behind is so illuminating that I had to withdraw my eyes until i could find my goggles. I guess you never get lost at night as your glowing behind illuminates the way... if you walk backwards that is...

If you can ride a reindeer backwards you could put Rudolph out of a job... and speaking of jobs I hear there's an opening (no pun intended) for someone with a glowing behind...instead of dropping a ball on new years eve they want someone to drop their glowing behind...

Seriously, the suit looks great.

Which part?

The accumulator mainly, though the glowing part of the staff would be great to know as well. Thanks!

Well the accumulator is made from a cardboard grip tape (for skate boards) tube, craft foam, and clear plastic from a 2 liter pop bottle. You can see a close up, along with further materials list int he comments, here:

Please note the accumulator ISN'T accurate to the book, and in the close up its blue instead for green. (Just changed the cellophane.)

The staff is a PVC pipe. The glowing part is simply slots cut into the tube, lined with poster board, and an LED flash light covered with green cellophane stuffed into the base.

I am loving the accessories! I've been considering making a staff too, you've nailed it perfectly! Any info or tutorials on how you put together your stuff?
