1. Talk to your optometrist before doing this
2. My leds are long wave 405 nm 30 degree blacklight mini leds. These are the least intense/ invasive I found and I was able to ensure they could skim the contact lens.

4. ADD A POTENTIOMETER. This allows you to dim the lights, otherwise you will walk into a garbage can in a dark room (was super embarrassing). since adding the dimmer this cosplay is now bar friendly and drunk people love this shit! I can see in normal lighting and such without any issues at all, I usually can't even tell when the lights are on.
5. Have fuuuuuuuun!

Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
Accidents happen. And when they do, you’re going to want a dash cam for a second pair of eyes. At the minimum, a decent dash cam can save you vast sums of time and money in case of an accident. But a really good dash cam can do a whole lot more. Here are six […]
