Bedroom set

I'm recreating my own bedroom in a stop motion set for a project I'm working on. Here's what my real bedroom looks like: http://takezer0.com/images/seans_wall.jpg . . . And here are some shots of the progress: http://takezer0.com/images/working_desk.jpg ^ my workspace http://takezer0.com/images/tiny_hinges.jpg ^ hinges and a lightswitch plate http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3116/2581515134_c324ca4f2b.jpg ^ my first batch of foam didn't work too well http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3027/2560852778_bbfdedef6c.jpg ^ the completed cast http://www.esotericsean.com/images/clayset.jpg ^ most of the set is done, need to add more things to the bulletin board, make my bed (that's the styrofoam)

that looks terrific. I was wondering what the bar in the overhead is?

That's an LED strip that I attached to an IKEA lamp. Here's a wider shot: http://www.esotericsean.com/images/wideset.jpg And a closeup of the LED: http://www.esotericsean.com/images/ledclose.jpg

The set looks great, and the LED lights on the lamp is a great way to rig the lighting. Looking forward to seeing more!

I appreciate it, you guys. It's hard to work on something for weeks and not tell anyone about it :P

It's cool seeing the mini bedroom within the large bedroom! Only, shouldn't there be an even smaller bedroom set inside that, and another one in that set.... :7 The only criticism I have is that the green wall in the set seems like a brighter green than the real wall.
