Posted:You can also bust open a glow stick and dump the insides on to what ever you're spinning. It will glow for as long as a glow stick will, but not quite as brightly, 'cuz it's not as concentrated as it would be in the stick.Oh yeah, don't get any in your mouth either, I heard it can be nasty. But then thats just what I've heard.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

Posted:Try Flag Poi.There seems to be a multitude of ways of making them but I think the simplest seems to be to get a string-and-coin poi thing going then sew (or in my case staple) this to the inside seem of a large white (preferably square) pillow case. Not the most effective looking flag poi but it works. The best I've seen have been either silk or simialr "flowing" materials. The problem with using pillow is the material is twice as thick as it needs to be. try opening it up if you don't mind ruining the pillow. Then find some UV/Black lights and prepare to dazzle people.Warning - they are darn hard to learn to use unless you rig up a swivel near the handle...Gosh - another helpful answer from me, what is the world coming to...------------------http://welcome.to/thehugbubble The Mug Shot Gallery MSN Poi Community Words to memerise, words hypnotise, words make my mouth exercise.
