I’m going to be Cyclops from X-Men (specifically from the 90s animated series). I’ll be wearing street clothes with a navy turtle neck under and his signature beam focusing bright yellow visor. The visor will fade on to a bright red, imitating his laser vision.
I will be using an on/off button to activate the lighting effect. When the on/off button is pressed and held, the light will fade in and continue to increase in brightness till it reaches maximum brightness. If the button is released at any point the light will quickly fade out.
If time permits, I’m hoping to add a power up sound effect to coincide with the lighting.
