Injury Tracker 2012 HD
It's May, so in my household that means one thing; raid the thrift stores and start building props. But I take after my dad, who had a unique ability to injure himself in ever new and creative ways.
This year, I decided to test solar garden lights as accent lights in my master lighting plan. I bought one of the $2 stake lights from Wally World and set it up in a miniature graveyard setting. As I was slowly and lightly pressing the light into the ground, the plastic shattered and sent shrapnel into three fingers across both hands. One of them probably could have used stitches, but I decided to man it out.
On a side note, while the stake portion of the light was a wash, the top with the sensor and the LED still work great, and I found that they're perfect for accent uplighting on props, and PERFECT for sitting mason jars on top of to light the contents! And, I've had one running for 4 days straight on one charge before it started to dim! So you see, there's a silver lining to every laceration...
Anyone else start accidentally adding real blood to their props yet?
