Hi, I have been performing with fire for several years now. I use fire poi, fans, fingers, and staff. I also do fire eating and a little blowing when the mood strikes me. I am now wanting to implement the flags into my shows. Anyone out there have any instruction on how they are constructed? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, in the fire's glow, Lady Pheonix of Dragon Trybe.

If you do a quick search about them you should find that this very topic has been covered in depth a couple of times. Use the little search "button" under the Post New Topic area for quickest results. I enjoy my flags immensely and have used them when fire isn't permitted. Best of luck.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...[This message has been edited by Pele (edited 15 May 2001).]

Lady PheonixHave a look under the "Quick Guide A-Z" link at the top of this page and look under word flags. There is a link to some flag making instructions there.Regards

ya know, phoenix, actually, you should disregard the flag instructions here - we talked about them before, but they don't really work very well. we just recently found a place that makes them so they really work, and they're so cool.now, before i tell you where, i have to give you the huge disclaimer that the site is hokey unless you marched in highschool. even certified bandgeeks would prolly find some of the stuff nerdy, but!you'd be surprised how similar colorguard stuff is to poi. anyway: www.bandshoppe.com and you should look at chain flags. they're new this year. you can either buy them there (they're not expensive) or you can make them - they have a very good illustration so you can see how they're made. i'm going to buy my flags, but i'm not going to buy my chain, because i like my own better

so i'm going to grommet the ends of the flags and clip them on. but anyway, you'll get the point. also, incidentally, if you do staff at all, it's also a good place to get staff lengths (flag poles). they're nicer than home depot aluminum tubing, and they're cheap too.

I took an old Hawaiin shirt that had pretty designs and colors and cut it into streamers and then tied it to shoe laces. Its kinda light, try putting lead fishing weights on the end of the shoe laces so you can move them.Love always,Spanky
