Glowing light bulbs in my hair: help me wear this piece of art

Help me create a functional light bulb crown! I saw this amazing sculpture at an art walk this week, and I'd like to make it into something wearable for Burning Man. My guess is that I can start by buying this type of bulb, but I need some advice beyond that. Wiring type and strategy? Batteries? How about affixing them to my head? I have long hair and could do something creative with little buns - I want to secure everything in a minimalist way (no baseball hats) so that the focus is on the lights.

Help me make an ass end of a unicorn of myself.

There's a con at the end of March that I'll be attending, and I only just thought of the costume I'd love to be part of. I think it would be hilarious and incredibly fun for my friend and I to go together as a pantomime unicorn. I would welcome suggestions to make it clever... hopefully with a bit of style.

Costume Ideas for Emma Peel from The Avengers?

I'm helping a friend with an undergraduate film school remake of The Avengers. I've been cast as Miss Peel, and I'm searching for the perfect costume to fit the character. Unfortunately, my school is in the middle of nowhere - shopping in person isn't really an option. Any thoughts for how I can assemble or where I might find a hip 1960s-looking catsuit on the internet? Thanks!
