HELP: Blacking out windows for recoveries. Best materials/methods
Okay mod's please just give this thread at least a few hours in Brisbane forum as i'd really prefer to know what the sunshine state punters have to say about blocking out the sun whilst partying.

Got a bucks party friday night that plans to go till about... sunday at least. Wanna black out my mates place on the beach to avoid the sunlight to ensure we can party longer.

Now would love to know what other people do or use to negate the rise of the sun in the morning to lengthen their partying.

Thoughts were either buy some cheap black curtains or cloth and put them over the doors and windows or go to like Bunnings or a hardware store and get that industrial black sheeting, but thought that might be a bit expensive.

Thoughts? Recommendations?

Got a LOT of window space to cover as it's a farken big house so cost is an issue. But really we want something that'll work, stay up and is pretty easy to put up.

All help GREATLY appreciated!!

Not really 'cost friendly' but dark blinds work wonders.
Failing that, I would say curtains. Black industrial sheeting is bound to make the house super hot, unless you have aircon installed.

Black garbage bags and tape?

I can't believe you're blocking out the sun, and the house is at the beach

I would be down at that beach in a flash!

I'm with Tez, if you're going to be gurning in a house at the beach...well go and gurn on the beach stupid, don't black out the windows! Mmmm munted in the ocean

But stay between the flags.

I second cardboard - it breaths (unlike the plastic sheeting idea) and will be cheap as ... perhaps some bucks-night appropriate artwork (read: playboy centrefolds) to jazz it up a bit?

HITW & Tezzy yes thankyou for that, fantastic idea to gurn at the beach......

You two obviously haven't been for a dip in the big blue lately, it's farken FREEZING. so unless we wanna gurn in full body steamer wetsuits then we'll be staying in doors

Or you could just put those garbage bags over your heads, and use the tape to seal them at your neck.

Whatever works.

Don't know if you've noticed.. but it's hardly been "winter" during the day in qld lately. The days have been gorgeous, and heaps of my coast mates have been hitting the beaches on the weekend. But its ok.. you tape up your gurner beach house and stay inside

The cardboard idea seems best though.

I went swimming in the ocean at Byron on both days of the Splendour weekend and the water was almost warmer than the ambient temperature. I couldn't believe it.

I think this is heading for the general forum very soon, cruisy.

go to bunnings and buy black plastic sheeting and tape it on the windows and doors with scotch tape. garbage bags will only work if you get the really thick ones, as the thin ones will still let some of the light through. layers of newspaper would be an even cheaper option.

At least with alfoil they'll come out with a nice crispy coating (so long as you use good oil).

Go to Bunnings and buy a roll of 100Metres of black plastic, that way u can cut it into measured portions and block every single window and door and use black gaffa tape (the 1000mph strong stuff with material woven through) to stick it up.. completly covers the whole place not a shred of light through!!!

Jake, if your going to gurn so hard for so long, i recommend one of the following...

- Figure it out once your already fucked and in the house, that would be a great mission

or better still

- Dont block the light out, BUILD A FUCKING CUBBY HOUSE OUT OF SHEETS AND A KITCHEN TABLE!!! theres no light getting in that puppy!! maybe even join a few tables, beds, racks WHATEVER together, and make a cubby house maze!!! how totally awesome, you could have a little spliff and have a dutchy even!! hahaha, im all excited, can i come jake??? hahahaha

Home gurns are awesome!!

Does this mean we should hand in an absentee form to any clubs/nights that you may, or may not, have said that you may, or may not be attending?
