Of all the new items for 2010 in the FrightCatalog, I think I’m most excited about this:
No, it’s not a weird top hat with glow sticks taped to it… the item is the glow strands, but they’re not old-fangled temporary glow strands that you crack to mix the mysterious chemicals that make it shine for a few hours. These are four foot, pliable, battery powered neon lights that can be attached to any costume. Dress as a spaceship, or TRON or … a neon sign! Set to constant light or strobe! This is awesome. $16.99 per neon strand, comes in blue, yellow and green.
Oh, and speaking of glowing stuff, you know what else is cool? iGlow gels for hair and skin. I checked this out recently and it’s a must-have. This isn’t some day-glo color that shines under a blacklight–this goop actually glows.
Apparently, the chemicals in glow sticks are not toxic when you mix them, because that’s the basic concept here: you mix together two parts, and the resulting gel glows for about eight hours. No “charging” under white light or anything–it’s fully self-illuminating.
Isn’t the future cool?
