Light up Puppets - Before and After

The puppets for Swazzle's new light up puppet show Water Color were covered with Electroluminescent Wire, also know as EL Wire. Hundreds of feet of EL Wire was painstakingly hand stitched to the puppets with transparent thread. Water Color is now on tour all over Southern California, to see when Water Color is playing in your town check out our online tour schedule. To see what the puppets look like with the stage lights on, and with the lights off, I've posted some before and after photos.

These all look fantastic and must be quite a show to watch!
I was wondering, what are the eyes made of?

Also, this is more of a random question, but what do you use as the bases for your stage besides the trunk? I saw the new stage design and was wondering what you used to support the painter poles.

Thanks!

The eyes for some of the puppets are made from white buttons, others are acrylic half spheres.

The supports for the stage are made from IKEA lamp stands: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/10139879
