Lenses for iron man helmet light up eyes

I only used my Glowforge for a small part of this project but thought I’d share it anyway. For background, this is the 23k gold Iron Man mark 50 helmet I made. I wanted to make the eyes light up like in the movies so I laser cut the lenses and also engraved little dots on the inside face to reflect light more out than in. Then just soldered a simple LED circuit and embedded the LEDs into the 1/4" acrylic lenses. I’d say it worked pretty well. I also made a build video of just doing the eyes here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02OUUxJiF8w
