    Option 1 I think this might be best as it one of few I could find that gave the width of the led's hole. At 8mm it might need expanding a little but the lens is simple so there is space.
    Option 2 Lots of sellers of these but less clear if a pixel would fit.

    Using 5050 pixels might work a bit better with the lenses, it is more similar to what they are designed for and would be more of a point source which should give a sharper beam. Ray has lots of options for them including A, B, C.

    I might order some myself to have a play with - if I ever decide what I'm doing this year!
    I picked up some 15deg lenses from ebay.. I'll do some testing and see how they look.

    A lot of images and videos may be broken. I did something stupid a while back. But should be enough info there to construct it.

    And I have the 3D print files and more construction details here:

    I do have an internal walkthrough video back up:

    And a daytime photo of Serena wearing it:

    Here are some aerial shots of Halloween night and her traversing the neighborhood.
