We stuck a lamp (LEDs) inside a cup-cake cover from the dollar store. I hand colored the top with a sharpie, to give it a spiral look. In the end it wasn't 100% "shell" like, but applying the 20' rule we thought it was safe. To my knowledge, nobody complained that the shell was the wrong shape. There's a brief picture of it at 1:10 in our slideshow. (also at 1:30) Andrew

We made ours with a tap light (from Home Depot), a big clam shell, and clear tubing. It looked like it was floating on the neck and Ursula just tapped the shell to turn it on and off. Worked great - cost under $15 to make.
