I have a huge favour to ask...



I Got a phone call this morning from a Agency who want me to do a nightclub performance as Burnt Toast in Cyprus on Sat 17th December. (Next week!!) Trouble is they want some glow staff as well as the other stuff i'm doing and I haven't got any at the moment.. frown



Sooo... (it's a big favour and i really don't like asking but) I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to lend me any aerotech staff for the night? redface I'm only really looking at good friends and other performers here as there's no way i'd expect anyone else to entrust me with such a valubale toy... and even then i expect there's very few people who would actually part with it/them or not be using it/them themselves that weekend...



...BUT if there's anyone who could and would help please give me a call or PM asap (07867630898) and we can dicuss how many hugs and other things (gig refferals etc..) i could offer in re-payment... ----> hug2



...also anyone with experience of gigs abroad i'd appreciate any advice you might have for me...



thank you for reading and apologies for having to ask... hug

GLOWSTICKS!

SELLOTAPE!

2+2!

or.... any other LED toy, glowball + sellotape and the end of your staff....

Or get some FHAT glowbugs and squish them all over your stick.

You can do the same with glow in the dark powders, or uv active powders, but it doesn't work soooo good. (plus for the uv active one you need a portable blacklight, and hell those are more than ten pence, so out of my price range.)

thanks meg... that was my backup plan as i'm making some uv staff for burnt toast anyway (i have lots of uv paint!). might go for the old glowsticks on hands trick as well after seeing your bristol fire performance... as for portable blacklight, i got me own uv cannon but not planning on hefting it over there! biggrin hug

incidentally can anyone point me in the direction of threads about fire equiptment and air travel? umm

in an emergency, rob strugz.

Don't ask much do ya? Probably depends where you're travelling too. In britain, burnt fire toys = no problem. Outside, problem.

Good luck chris.

If you cover your fire props with loads of cling film then they should let you on no trouble. Unless they think you're smuggling i guess, but it's worked every time for people i know.
