I would recommend picking up this book: http://www.amazon.com/Wiring-Simplified-Based-National-Electrical/dp/0971977976,
and reading it.  It is good basic, fairly comprehensive, easy to understand book.  Even though it is not directly geared to temporary/entertainment power distribution, it will give you a good basic understanding of electrical wiring that I feel anyone who turns on a light switch should have.

Breakers and ELCB/GFCIs that cut both the live and neutral line are mandatory for construction site wiring in Australia.  The "shows and carnivals" electrical standard lags behind a bit, but using products that comply with the construction standards is an easy way to get IP44 or IP66 ratings for outdoor use too.  The downside is nobody makes this type of gear in black.

Cutting both live and neutral makes sense in environments where live and neutral might be swapped somewhere.

Multiple sources for CEEform plugs in black,  also distribution gear.     http://www.showtechnix.co.nz/3-phase-connectors-1/    , the Midnight series is all black.   Cheers
