What's a quick way to make a trick mirror?

I saw a recent casemod and got infatuated with the idea. The window in his side panel was a mirror, until it turned on. The light generated from the innards caused it lose opacity, like one of those mirrors used for lineups and whatnot.

I have a case window, and it is normal acryllic. Can anyone think of a way to mimic this property?

Thanks! Happy modding!

See if you can find some mirrored window tinting for cars. That would do it.

If you go to a magic supply shop, you might find something even better, like a semi silvered mirror set up that makes it look like there's a "spirit" skull inside when you turn the lights on. That would be trick.
If your glasses fog up and you want to make your own mask fans, here's how;
