I'm hoping to have the guy at the entrance to our exhibit this year have a lantern, but it would be cooler if it flickers as though there's a flame inside! I can live with a regular steady glow, but yeah haha.
Do they sell these? I'm assuming they do, but they're probably realllly lame looking.
Or is there any other way I could achieve this effect (short of a real flame lol)?

I use the LED flickering tea lights. I change the wimpy LED to a 10,000 mcd and cut in a 4AA battery pack. Some are really easy to hack. Use some small colored diffusers to spread the light around. If you use a spray-on glass frosting coating it'll look good, too.

I bought out walgreens when they had the led tea candles. They actually had them cheaper than the maker sells them for!

Dollar Store has some that cycle through 3 different colors. That'd be kinda strange for a lantern, though.
