As in designing/installing LEDs on someone else's stuff?
That's not really something I do, I'm afraid.
Too many potential liability issues.

I mean like a custom job, where I send a design concept, exact measurments of a body and so on.

I know you said that you don't want to tell all your secrets, but I was wondering if you make molds of your masks/helmets or do you just make one piece projects?

It's cool man!
I don't do molds.
I used to do pretty much solely one-off builds, but these days I usually just create a rough prototype with foam, number each piece, and mark connections with alignment lines.  After it's done I break it down and transfer all the shapes along with their corresponding markers to poster board templates (storing them in folders).  I then use these templates to reconstruct it and make the final "clean" builds. 

I do have to build each piece from the ground up, but because I have the templates saved I can just pull up a folder and recreate a project whenever I feel like it.  Recreating a build also only takes a fraction of the amount of time it takes to make the original because I already know what I'm doing.

That's what I was thinking, your projects look like they would be very hard to make molds of. Ahh that explanation sounded awesome :D Sounds so simple.

That's really smart! So true so true. Thanks so much for that wonderful answer! :D I'll have to try it out someday after I've finished my current project La la la la

You're way OP for this realm with your skills sir. I'm sitting here in total envy, watching your kick-ass eye lighting. Any tips for me who's going to make his first lit eyes?

Haha thanks! I'm alright. 
I guess it really depends on the shape and/or type of mask you're installing them in, the types of eye holes you're seeing out of (and their placement), and the type of style for the lights you're aiming for - Unless you're just referring to the mechanical aspects of it (i.e. wiring and such). 
Otherwise I can't really offer much help without knowing those things. I wish there was a cure-all method that suits everything, but that would be too easy lol.
