Blade Runner Lampshade / Part 2 – Translucent Images and Bulb Holder

I’m not sure if this is a good look or similar to the actual prop in the movie. I then installed the images and Perspex. In the movie the lampshade is a desk light with quite a bulbous stand, but I decided to hang mine so I made a mount out of 3mm hardboard which I could screw the bulb fitting too.

The video I was referring too:
