View Full Version : Li's Lasin Board.....

05-27-2003, 07:20 PM
I don't think these are sold anywhere.....but i need to make it!!!! I was thinking two, square pieces of wood...But i want to put a small, penlight flashlight in there somehow. The flashlight will need to be where it can be removed to replace batteries and also where whoever is playing Li in the skit can be able to click it and turn it on....but i don't want it on the outside. And i need to paint the top of it...Here's a picture...anyone got any ideas?

i think that the only way of making it is drawing on a cardboard paper, painting and cutting... o.o

adn i think it's sold in anything like Chinatown, but in smaller versions

No Chinatown arounds here...nowhere near here! Cardboard paper? Will that take the beatign of a convention? Our props seem to take a beating when they go to a convention. Esp. in the crowded dealer's room. Maybe the bottom half can be like...a small wood box with hinges. (narrow box.) Maybe i can fix something in there to hold the light in place...cut a small hole in the bottom so the place where the flashlight is pressed can be there.....hmm...How does that sound everyone?

the good thing about things made out of cardboard is that you can make bazillions of them, so whenever one of them gets all f**** up, you just throw it away and replace it

I made a lasin board for my boyfriend's li costume. I took 2 pieces of the thick foam poster board (in black) and cut one in the main shape of the board and another one in the inner hexagon shape of the board. I then glued the two sections together and painted it. as for a light, you're probably better off either not doing it (I doubt people are gonna be like "ohh it's not right blah blah" ) or if u do I'd go with LEDs and wire them to a 9v battery. You don't have to worry about space cause you can just tape the battery to the back side of the board or li can hold it in his/her hand and the LED themselves don't take up that much space.

here's a picture of my board. What I do recommend is if either u or a friend of yours who can read chinese help make sure you get the symbols correct. Mine are for the most part correct with the exception of one or two...

Can you get 9V LEDs?? I've only seen 12V ones >.>

yes! 12v leds will work fine with a 9v battery. The ones I've used are ones purchased from an auto store so they're made for a car and they come pre-resistored so they won't burn out due to too much amps. but yes they'll still light up. I've had 3 of those LEDS wired to a sole 9v battery, and they work fine.
