Spandex Wedgies

Is it just me, or does stretched spandex look somewhat like someone’s getting an atomic wedgie? No? Guess it’s just me. Regardless, check out this great use of stretched spandex from Shawn Begley at Orchard Grove Community Church in Walled Lake, Michigan.

The design uses five 4-point spandex shapes.

  • 2 blue 8’x12′
  • 2 white 10’x10′
  • 1 white 16’x12′

The wash lighting on the spandex was accomplished using 10 Colorblast 12TR and the light shapes were accomplished with gobos from 4 Varilite VL2500 Spots.

    When you make stretched spandex like this, do you need to make a frame to stretch it around or just tie it off to the ceiling and floor? Kinda new to this stuff…
