Love these little battery operated grain of rice size LEDs on a copper wire held on with a bit of epoxy. They are bright and look fabulous on costumes. I own the same lights from the Martha Stewart Christmas line in white, red, and blue. Hidden behind a little piece of tulle or gauze you get a nice diffused glow.
What I love about the the new Pier 1 set is they now can be used with a remote control. Pier 1 carries a remote for their pillar candles that will work with this light string. In a live chat with customer service they confirmed the remote on sale for $6.36 will work with this light string. Extremely handy to save battery life when an actor is not viewable to an audience. No fumbling with a switch on the battery pack. The light strands should be in stores in August.
