Created by the cosplay and propmaker at GiveWave Studios, the Floating Fireball Prop 2.0 is an illuminated fireball that appears to float above the palm of a person’s hand, as if by magic. Which is exactly the point. No word what Floating Fireball Prop 1.0 was, but in my mind, it was an actual burning wad of crumpled paper.
Held to the hand with a transparent plastic band, the fireball is illuminated by a string of wire LED ‘fairy lights’ inside, and is available in a variety of colors ($68 to $86) to suit your current fireball needs. Me? I want a large blue one but with the head of the fireball facing away from the palm like I’m performing a Street Fighter Hadouken. This year’s Halloween costume contest will be mine.
Get one for each hand and pretend you’re dual-wielding magical fireballs. Just a friendly word of advice: make sure to extinguish your flames (read: take them off) before attempting to go to the bathroom. The horrifying stories Merlin used to tell!
