FIG. 2 is a rear, right side, top view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side elevation view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional view of a part of the upper portion;

FIG. 7 is a front, right side, top view thereof in a closed state with the upper portion pivoted downwardly onto the lower portion; and,

FIG. 8 is a rear, right side, top view thereof in the closed state.

The broken line showing illustrates environmental structure and forms no part of the claimed design.

The user-actuated lighting effect device can be used to provide a lighting effect for a performer during a performance.
