Quicky Comb Jelly Halloween Costume

Our little guy is into sea creatures big time, and it really comes out at Halloween.  He's been a shark a couple times, an orca (don't you dare call him a killer whale), and an octopus.  Not to be left out, I figured I needed something to blend in, but I didn't want to spend a lot of time, and I'm not quite geeky enough to be comfortable spending 45 minutes on the metro in a full manatee costume.  So I went for jellyfish.  It's simple, doubles as an umbrella, and folds up for travel. Here's an idea of what it looks like. It was a BIG hit at the invertebrate house during "Boo at the Zoo."

The design was something I could through together thanks to having the necessary ingredients lying around or available from Amazon.  These included: 

It took me a couple hours to put it together.  Most of the time was figuring out the best way to route the wires.  Everything is held together with packing tape. It's a bit makeshift, but it's not particularly noticeable from any distance.  Here's a closeup. 

After this Halloween, it'll probably be time to retire it.  I haven't decided yet whether to re-purpose the light strips into more writing productivity porn, or some sort of Christmas decoration. Any other ideas?
