Posted:Alright, this one is for glow and fire, and everything else. I want to know what everyone has in their bag of tricks. I'm not trying to steal ideas here, so if you have your own special toys, you don't have to list them here. I am just interested to find out what kind of stuff people come up with in their spare time. So far, judging from everything I have seen and heard up to this point, Dangerboy is in the lead.

I'll start. I have a set of racquetball practice poi; alternate colors of UV Zuni (I think I am the only person in the world who still has the same pair still intact!); a pair or ropes that I braided out of 3 different colors of Nylon cord; a set of BIG UV flags/scarves; a set of smaller scarves; a drawer full of glowsticks; christmas light balls (they are about 7-8 inches diameter, and swung by the cord, so they don't go too many places. Kind of like beaming poi all jacked up on crack!

); the cords that light up and flash (can't remember what they are called); bicycle lights; fluorescent finger tubes; UV body paint; my beautiful, beautiful chains; and probably my favorite-my 4 RAV'N lights all wrapped up in bubble wrap to make the light bands bigger.

And that is why I go by Glowshow, in case anyone was wondering.

...As for me...the list is shorter of what I don't use.I don't use juggling torches, clubs or juggling fire balls, mainly because I don't juggle!As for what I offer to perform with...Non-fire: Comets, glowsticks (multiples), LED, non-fire staff, getting Electroglo Staff next week in mail (thanks Malcolm!
Non-Https Image Link
), flags, fluff cuff poi (yes I have a pair
Non-Https Image Link
),A ball python named Goldie (I don't swing her, but I dance with her), bola's, laser pointers, veils..which are similar in use to flags, meteor, devils stix, contact juggling stuff, and a bunch of other little tricks up my sleeve!Fire: Poi (multi length), multi-wick poi, staves, jump rope, torches (eating, breathing, trailing), working on meteor, whips, fire sculptures, fire fans, I tried fire fingers but didn't like them at all, working on firettes, and I have several tools of my own design including (but not limited to) a "fire ray" and "whip it".For general knowledge, meteor can be used like a rope dart, so I don't need a seperate tool for that.You are only limited by your imagination!

Posted:non fire- braided cord with attachments for 1. three glow sticks using key rings and pony-tail streatchy things, with leather finger loops.2. A medium length and a short length set of thin dog chains with a glow stick on each end. 3. two pair of nunchucks that I can use just like poi4. and many varients on the chain with leather finger loops theme, including: a)soft baseballs, b)tennis balls, c)steel, and not to forget my d) doggy toys dipped in black rubber coating that look just like spiked flails, great for mideavil shows!e) cane poles for twirling (all sizes) f) I twirl damp towels too (provides cooling actrion and a work out!)Fire? never heard of it...

I don't have a large list, but here goes.Fire poi (cable, I really want some chain/ballchain ones though) is the limit of my foray into the world of fire.I have a set of practice poi that I made and love dearly. I take them with me nearly everywhere! Heavy and long but that's the way I like it *ahem*A meteot made by joining these poi together at the handles. This leads to a meteor with a weighted centre as well as weighted ends, I haven't worked out if this is good or bad yet...2 practice staffs that I recently made. I can't do a lot with them yet, but I am learning.A bunch of juggling balls (though I can only use 3 at once - sometimes 4).But like many out there I have some non-dedicated toys. By this I mean sometimes I will twirl my camera around until I realise what I am doing!

Posted:I love talking about trick bags. There's so few true builders out there. The list of things I built this year include.Multi-length, Multi wick poi.A fire staff with sliding wicksA flaming tire iron as most ppl call it.Very short hand torches.I had acouple sets of eating torches but lost them due to lack of interest. I also built but didn't test a ring of fire.I have plans laid out to build some more stuff but they require weilding to make so soon as I find one I can contuine building.They are a Star design kinda like a 3-d tire iron and a 12" giant flaming puppet that can do multi-poi. Hehe I can't wait to eaither kill myself with that or have him dance about in the ring of fire

As for non fire toys I've got a set of rav'n lights that I almost never use and a christmas tree light staff which i'm tryin to make into an over the shoulder bong

Posted:Toys.....Let's see, I started with staff, as I had extensive expeiriance with it. At the moment I am playing with fire chain whip, and fire ropedart. Great fun those, I keep discovering new pressure points and nerve clusters that they never showed me in martial arts. I hit myself between the ankle bone and achillies tendon the other day and it felt like all the veins in my foot filled with ice water and then spilled out into my shoe. I'm also playing with a three section staff, and trying to find new ways to illustrate the nature of the weapon instead of just doing reg. staff stuff like they teach in kung-fu. Also trying to keep it from busting a hole in my skull

.I was watching the demo mode for a video game at a bar that I frequent. It was Tekken or some such thing, but it showed all these charactors going through their weapons forms with their weapons all glowing. It came to a girl going nuts with a tai-chi sword and it looked completely sick. So now I'm playing with fire sword in the tai-chi style. I hope I can get it down before Burning Man. ------------------If you love something, set it on fire.[This message has been edited by SickpuPpy (edited 23 January 2002).]
