I was thinking about covering my living room set with white sheets and thought about using back lights to make the sheets glow. Heres the question Will the white sheets glow with the black lights?
We tried to use these one year and they did not give off enough lite. So we picked up the 12" ones from HomeDepot and they worked great. eBay sells some really nice ones used in clubs. Hubby picked on up for $50 and it lights up a 15x15 foot room NO problems. Plus all of the neat flashing extras.You may already know this, but be sure to use real blacklights - the fluorescent kind, not the incandescent. There are compact fluorescent bulbs available that screw straight in to a regular lamp socket, so you don't have to buy a bunch of those long ballasts. I saw the compact fluorescent bulbs at Home Depot for about $5.00 - I haven't bought any, so I can't verify how good they are.
Oh, how much fun would it be to decorate the first person to pass out drunk!!! Take photos of them under the blacklight, but leave no visible evidance LOLYes they will!
I know this because (embarrassingly enough) I used to play Laser Tag, and I accidently wore white one day. I was such an easy target. haha.
It's fun too to write on yourself in highlighter, because you can't really see it without the black light on. But once you turn the light on, it's like a hidden message on your arm/face.
I'm so cheesy.
We bought SEVERAL of the 24" blacklights at wal-mart. We just tested them out last night and at $9.96 each - totally perfect! Wal-Mart mustn't want to sell them for Halloween though -they are found in the regular light section in the store where you buy regular light bulbs.Skulkin, your "blacklight" room looks great! Did you just have the one long blacklight tube shown in the picture? Or more lights throughout the room? I tried something similar last year (without the white sheets), but the room was quite dark so found I had to add other lights.
If anyone else has any tips on how to make a great "blacklight" room, please tell!!
