Luke, I'm Your Flasher...
Shoot your kid(s) in their Halloween costume. That's exactly what Strobist reader Resuggan did while playing with one, small flash.
He put it to camera right on 1/8 power manual, stuck a red gel on it and triggered it with a PC cord. The kicker that pulled off the idea was to use a time exposure to track the toy lightsaber as it moved around a bit.
Tres Hollywood, IMO. Click on the pic to see it bigger.
