Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Reverse...I gotta take my wrist piercings out before I move on to the forward BTB 3BT coz they keep getting ripped on my clothes and it hurts and I want them gone now so I can learn more poi!

sounds more like a huggy or crossover, a straitjacket is the same but inverted, so you have arms folded into themselves

Posted:thanks simta. so many moves so many more names.

also learnt to move the huggies in small circles in front of me last night. And made my first step towards something a little special. some sort of anti-spin hybrid butterfly thing coutesy of nate. my first hybrid. *giggles with glee* or *roars triumphantly*, whichever seems more fitting. I think giggling.

Posted:Just managed to figure out how to thread the needle, along with how to do it lying down. I also managed to figure out how to do hyperloops inside of a 3 beat weave, and this move thing where I put it under my leg and wrap it around the back of my arm and come out into a butterfly. Which was purely by accident, but it looked cool. Also just got the 5 beat weave down.

Posted:Today I just managed to learn the Buzzsaw. Yesterday I attempted flowers (And succeeded). Now I'm working on Buzzsaw tricks, including not wacking myself when I try to do a buzzsaw flower. I hate being short, because that means my arms are short, so I have to super shorten the poi if I don't want to wack myself in the chest.
