Hey guys, I'm the prop master at my school and our spring musucal is gonna be kiss me kate. But there is a catch, all the taming of the shrew scenes are scifi! So you know what that means! We are gonna have a lightsaber fight and I must say that so far it is looking insanely good. SO on to the topic I will be making five sabers for this play. We just ordered the wire and inverters today. Each saber will have 4 strands of highbrightness short life wire. Seeing as we only need it for the one play and the fact that it is cheaper we don't have to worry about it lasting too long, they just has to make it through 3 shows with a 5 minute fight in each. not too shabby. Also to increase the brightness we will not be difusing the wire. They will be far enough back that the audience won't be able to see teh individual wires. Now all I have to do is order the polycarbonate and I can start building. Does anyone have any ideas on how to permanently attach the blade to the hilt? Man what have I gotten myself into?
