Lights and leaves

By spotogspindel | August 30, 2016

So a pretty crazy thing happened today. I was asked by someone in the technical department in the municipally to have a look at a stage-curtain, to see if it could be fixed. Turns out the municipal is restoring the old stage in the “town hall”. They were about to throw away a whole lot of old things there, including these old “pig-faced” lights. So I called the man below, and he came to have a look at them…. two hours later, our garage is filled with theatre lights! They all need repair, so he´s got his work cut out for him the next couple of weeks. They are so cool! I want one in the living room!


So what is today´s task for me? Adjusting after 1. fitting and adding more leaves and “forest floor” to Peter´s costume…


Does this look like something Peter Pan would wear?


Still lots to do with it, but at least it looks like a pair of pants now.

    The lights are amazing — you’ll need to find a not-so-hot light if you use them in the house though, don’t you think? I picture theatre lights as being hot hot hot! But then again, what do I know?! Love the pants, makes me yearn (but just a little) for autumn. 🙂

    That´s right. The current bulbs are 500 watts, so it would get very hot. But lucky me: living with a lighting designer who can change the whole inside, turning it into 100 watts bulbs instead. 🙂

    “Kjellermannen” var vel glad for disse, tenker jeg. Litt mer å pusle med når du er borte på alle dine oppdrag 🙂 Hils han så mye.
