I didn't get to see the light until my girlfriend opened it for Christmas. She took it out of the box, and unwrapped the cord and i walked away as she asked me what it was. Then from across the house i hear "oh. my.goooooodddd. THIS IS FRIGGEN AWEEESSSEEOOOMMMEEE!!!!!!" etc, etc, etc. It looks WAY cooler in person than in the photos, and i can not wait to hang it up! The vendor was a pleasure to work with, and shipped everything super quick. I will most definitely be buying again!
