here Is what the wiring looks like. Its best to use Mesh as it defuses and Spreads the light through the eyes evenly. The MAIN thing is to angle and glue in the LEDs so the 30 degree angle of the LED is shining on most of the eyes.
(i chose 7000mcd LEDs so that it can even be seen in the day time haha)

(warning VERY BRIGHT, only used for flashing of the eyes. close your eyes to flash them for a second)

The left side is for the LED's I mounted to the eyes with a momentary switch.

Here is a video of the eyes working

OMG..That’s freaking Brilliant! I’m definitely taking this into serious consideration for my costume planning. Now, this is meant for wearing right? It would seem a tab awkward to have to place a thumb/finger inside the bio to flash the eyes..any plans on changing the location of the flash button?

yes its definately meant for wearing ;) the plan is to move the wiring for the switch into the gauntlet in the future, but i wont have all that ready until i get my full suit of armor :p i already have a plan for the wiring to go through the oxygen lines but still be detachable with magnets so you can still take the mask off

Sounds like it’s going to be sweet once completed! It’s definitely gonna’ be a crowd pleaser for sure. I can imagine Con. Attendees freaking over this already! My first costume is going to be based off the P1, I think this would set it off perfectly.
