Recently there have been a few posts concerning eyelights, in paticular the use of rope lights.

My question is where do I find rope lights? what kind of stores stock them? (I mean those lights that come in a PVC type tube that they commonly use in nightclubs and shop windows).

Also, a member posted an image whereby they had wrapped a rope light around the lens barrel to get the surreal look in a character's eyes where they have beads of light surrounding the iris. What's the best way to acheive this?

I think the answers to all your questions are in the threads you're referring to.

Sounds like you answered your own question there...

A lot of solutions involve rolls of tape, heavy baling wire, c-stands, etc. whatever works.

Home Depot, Target, Walmart, any lighting store. They seem to be everywhere actually.
