    Hi,

    I am not aware of the names of similar places where you are.
    But here I would go to a plumbing supplier or electrical parts supplier for the PVC tubing.
    Or a hardware store.

    The material I would purchase from a Haberdashery (clothing material store).

    I would have to search for the blue or green chromakey material. Maybe ask at a good photographic store.

    As it is quite a simple project, I would guess that you could substitute some of the items with things more readibly available.

    The concept is a good one.

    Hope this is of some help.
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    this is called a light tent.

    PVC pipes can be found at many hardware stores.

    the nylon cloth can be found at some HDB shophouse around King Geoges 's Ave and Maude Road.
