Stormtrooper Leg Lamp
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:14:51 PM »

I had this idea rolling around in my head for awhile now and finely decided to just go ahead and make it. 

Those of you that are familiar with A Christmas Story will get this right away. If you are not familiar with the movie I suggest you watch it ASAP.







 

Here it is with the full sized original...













Now I'm thinking I'd like to do A Star Wars Christmas Story movie.

Kid, "I'd like a Luke Skywalker Lightsaber with a metal hilt and green blade!"

Teacher, "You'll cut your arm off."

Awesome! I'd put that in my front window!

My wife and I love that movie. A few years back we got to help do some light demolition in the school they used for that movie, in St. Catharines, ON. It was being converted to a women's shelter, and they needed some volunteers to help out. It was cool to see some of the sites from the movie - unfortunately for the last time for that building.

Thanks Thirdfloor and Wedge. I'm not sold on the shade and think I'll go out this weekend and look for a more traditional shade. I'm thinking all white with black tassels hanging around it like the original.

This past Christmas I only had the original leg lamp in the front window for one night (wifes  ::) ) when we were expecting some friends. We had a number of people walking and driving by stop and take photos of our house and lamp.

Wedge were you able to get a souvenir or two from the demolition? A few years back someone was selling on line peices of the siding of the house that was used in the movie.

I was not happy with the shade so decided to go with this one instead. I think it's a huge improvement.
