About this Prop
Construction Details:
Standard wooden jewelry box type thing I already had, refinished and changed some of the hardware on it. Cross "lock" is carved pink foam with a magnet buried in the center and a metal plate on the back of the removable cross.

Experimented with LEDs and various types of bulbs and batteries but due to insufficient brightness and in some cases heat concerns (and lack of knowledge at the time as well) ended up gutting a lantern and putting the guts in there, as well as installing and wiring up switch hardware from radio shack to make it so that it came on when the box opened, and off when it closed. Used red film and a piece of sanded plexiglass to give said eeeevil glow.
Personal Thoughts:
Once upon a time when I was planning a skit with some friends, I came up with the idea of doing Pandora's Box that lit up with an eeeevil red glow when you opened it. Also wanted to do the cross-lock, but I scrapped the idea of making the cross also work as a pendant at the last minute.

Didn't end up doing the skit due to some major falling-outs with some of the people mid skit, but since I already made the box they used it for their skit anyway.
