Hi guys!

I recently obtained an extra set of blue LED poi, and want to buy some socks. I was looking at getting white ones, as I know they ship as blue balls with white socks, but then I saw the deep blue socks. Question is, would the deep blue dull the light? This got me thinking - have many people messed around with colour combinations of glowballs / socks? I'd be interested to hear experiences, ie, Hot pink socks with blue or white poi, etc.

But yeah - I'm still torn between white or blue socks. Such a decision! Suggestions? Discussion? biggrin

It's 9:45pm, and I live by the river torrens. I'm going out for a spin. biggrin

Thanks!

Nolly

That would travel one million miles and ask for nothing more,
Than a plate of food and a place to rest.

An extra thought: Just went out for a spin then- Noticed the blue balls simply come up as green through my green socks- Which suggests to me they work similarly to white balls in coloured socks- bring out the sock colour.

This makes me tempted to buy pink socks. Pink balls would be awesome. They'd be a little purple, even- since pink and blue would clash.

I also tried out the blues in regular white long school socks - and they worked great. nice'n'blue. So I guess I'll just keep experimenting.

Oh, the choices!

I think dark blue socks would probably make the light dull .
But that said i do think that white balls in pink socks woulds be some what pink. Probably would work with yellow socks too

I'll second fishnets, especially the white ones, that I spent more time shopping for than I care to admit. I did find the strechiness to be a bit of a problem though.

stretchiness is fun:
either use something lighter so they don't stretch
or something really heavy and let them hang a bit, don't wash in warm water or dry in heat

stores i've found fishnets, so you poor people mayn't have to hunt:
ebay
hot topic
charlotte russe
kohl's
target (vassarette is one brand)
rave
spencers
victor victoria
victoria's secret
loungerie stores
any porn stores that sell dancewear
of course if you do not know where these porn stores exist, i'm sure the girls at the local club will be more than happy to tell you where you could find them
