The Suns and Sun People
Big Sun and Nicole
The sun was made of two sheets of heavy “transparent” plastic dropcloth ironed together, with thin colored plastic hot-glued on, lighted with four strips of flexible LEDs, powered by two LED battery packs, and blown up with a battery pump for camping mattresses.
Advantages: nice and bright, packs up easily, doesn’t mind the damp,
Problems: hard to get rid of air leakage in inside corners. caught the wind, sun-holders were wrestling with each other. If I do it again, I’ll put it on a rod across the top. LED strips weren’t made to bend repeatedly – they will develop shorts with repeated packing and unpacking?
The main problem that it was too bright – it killed any other puppet near it, even though NY streetlights are nice and bright.
