Posted:hey guys, i was thinking about making some flags (dom style of course), and was wondering how well they work outside?

i would imagine in the wind they would go all over the place, but i've been wrong before =]

i want something new to do on the beach (where there is alot of wind)


Lights dancing off my skin as chains wrap round it.
Pain is in a little box and I'm so glad I found it.

Posted:They are a problem in windy situations. With a bit of wind you can just do all your moves with the spin planes perdendicular to the poi, but with a lot fo wind it's no fun.

Posted:i bought mine of HoP,

but when i save up Miss BamBam said she'd talk to perdy for me to see if she could make me a pair

the HoP flags feel strange when you spin them at first, cause there is almost no weight, but you get used to it.


We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:I recently bought some spiral poi. Theyre basically silk flags attached by one corner. But the beauty of them is that whilst spinning theyre like normal tails but you can grab a corner and turn them into flags......... wow. Has anyone ever heard of them???

Posted:yey someone else has seen them aswel *smiles* aint they great. theyre so fluid for throws and body wraps. But im scared of spinning mine but theyre to beautiful to rip or get dirty.
But on the making flags, my friend made some which were rlealy nice. He got a square bit of material, sew rice along an edge for some weight and on one of the weighted corner attach some finger holds. simple as that. or so the theory is!

Posted:Usually flags are too big to work with easily at normal size. I just attached the flags to my extraweighted cone poi with split rings, they were really hard work.

A Durbs should give you some flagmaking threads. If no luck PM me and I will try explain my way.
