Ein sehr kreatives Kostüm
Neulich bekam ich eine Email aus Holland, welche ich Euch auf keinen Fall vorenthalten möchte. Zwar hat der Verfasser in Englisch geschrieben aber ich gebe Euch den Inhalt mal so Sinngemäß wieder:
Also, er schreibt, daß er ein großer Fan der 50er und 60er ist und natürlich auch sehr gerne eine Juke-Box aus der Zeit hätte, aber das liebe Geld. Nun feiert man in seiner Stadt 3 Tage im Jahr ausgiebig Karneval. Da das Geld für eine echte 1015 nicht reicht denkt er sich, egal, dann musst Du Dir halt selbst eine Box bauen, und da Du gerne Karneval feierst, machst Du daraus gleich ein Kostüm.
Gesagt, getan, heraus kam der \"Wurlitzerman\" und er wurde sofort die Attrktion des Karnevals.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zu dieser tollen Idee, und wer eine Bauanleitung braucht, hier die Original Adresse vom \"Wurlitzman\".
Und hier die Mail mit der Adresse:

During my travels on the worldwide web I came across your beautiful
site.I always have loved the 50\'s and 60\'s when the world still seemed to be good,with great songs that would mark the era for many years to
come.Wuerlitzer jukeboxes tributed their share to that magnificient
period in time. The 1015 model not only seemed to fit the mentioned 50\'s and 60\'s but is still very popular nowadays and probably will be forever.
Unfortunately I haven\'t the finance to buy an original Wuerlitzer but
dreams are for free. In the town where I live we celebrate our carnaval every year.For three days people dress up in allkinds of creations and have fun with eachother.
For years I was looking for the ultimate creation.Something with lights
and sound would be great. I came up with a Jukebox,not just a Jukebox but the one and only,the best known of them all the 1015 Wuerlitzer model.It took me a couple of months to make it, as good looking as possible and it had to fit my body as a glove.Another hard part was making it actually work.My first appearence as \'Wuerlitzer man\' was during the \'93 carnaval and was an immediate success.Especially at night it was great to see the lights working while I played Rock\'n Roll music on it.
Some technical data of my Jukebox;
-Two walkmans with remote control one with Rock\'n Roll music and one
with carnaval music
-2 kripton flashlights
-3 blacklight fluorescent lights
-4 speaker system 140 watts
-1 booster 200 watts
-10 small lights
All powered by 4 motorcycle battaries totall of 18 ah carried in a bodywarmer.
Power supply lasts about 3 hours and is refreshed with newly charged batteries once a night. The costume weights about 15 kg.
Unfortunately it was to difficult to made the bubble tubes,but I am always looking for new gadgets to attach to it.
The first year my creation hadn\'t a money slot, so people wanted to put the money in my mouth,next year it had a slot and I was able to raise money with my act.
The money I collect every year goes to charity.Although every year it
costs me some money to repair it if something broke during the carnival.
On of my wishes is to have a batterybelt(like professional camaramen
use).A belt would be more comfortable to wear instead of the bodywarmer
stuffed with battaries.
Another feature that would be great is a MD player(direct access) so I
could actually play the song people would like to hear.Now people get
the song where the tape is possitioned. Meanwhile I\'m very know in my town with carnaval and people would miss
me if I didn\'t attend each year.My creation has been on local and national tv during the years.It has become an eyecatcher.
I would like to hear from you what you think of my Wuerlitzer
creation?Am I the only one you know of who likes to dress up as a
