normally i spin in jeans, headscarf and...... yeah thats it.
there are some videos of guys (which are oretty good) which are wearing loose clothing. i would like to wear more loose pants, but i am afraid that my (fire) pois will get caught and set my pants on fire.

does someone has some (safety) tips for loose pants?

you are also welcome to post ideas for costumes (i am always searching for something, which makes my shows more interesting)?

Heres an old thread but might be worth looking at.

If money is the root of all evil, then why do people sell Bibles?

Be good to have round for after a fire show, all you need is the bread some ketchup and a spatula. Yay bacon sarnies, although you may not need the bread she already has the baps lol

Hat. love my hat. Baseball-cap type hat.

Shirt - situational. Most of my tools have too much fire to do arm wraps and stuff without sleeves(maybe one day). Prefer no shirt whenever I can so I get exposure to the fire.

Pants - heavy canvass b.d.u. style pants. Tight weave makes more fire resistant, somewhat baggy. (watch out for those cargo pockets!)

Boots - Sometimes I like to spin in bare feet, but more often I like to be 'free' so wear my boots.

As long as you stay away from anything plastic, you have half the battle won already. Latex, nylon, and other plastics used in clothing are very dangerous with fire. (READ : melt)

melting plastic + skin contact = Pain.

I'd recommend tighter clothing with |tighter stitching!| for newer spinners. Tighter weaves take longer to catch fire BUT soak up more fuel in a spill. You wouldn't seriously think about lighting up after you spill fuel on yourself, would you?

jeans, leather shoes, and a tight cotton shirt are good for starters. If you have any canvass clothing, that's even better.

(got some camo hand-me-downs laying around for camping trips? perfect)

...and save your face - wear a hat with a brim. Later not so important, but in the beginning you will appreciate it. Applies later too if you actually have hair on your head.

When playing with fire I tend towards leather boots, baggy trousers and a tight fitting top both in cotton. Oh and I have very long hear at the moment so a bucket of water over my head tying it back and tucking it into my top has become the norm adding a socked bandana makes me feel a lot happier cold but happier. If Im playing for a long time. More buckets.

Ive got hold of a anime style long coat. While I keep catching my self fire os a no no. While Im shore its going to restrict what I can do, one day with the right music its going to look great. weavesmiley

socked bandana.
lol2
That was beautiful just so relaxed everyone together enjoying them selfs. meditate

Dont know if you know but the best way as far as I know (what the? Whats with all the knows?) to do the 360 stuff without CGI is with lots of static cameras and the edit it together. The more cameras you have filming the smother it will look.

Either that or you become Jacki Chan and just hover naturally.

Anyway I think Ive taken this thread off topic. Sorry ooooops

hehe happy to help tongue2

and yeah. Tight is right until planes learn how to behave. I wear baggy stuff a lot while practising and I am forever hitting them with the poi. If I were doing a burn I could safely say that I'd be a tad hotter in 'em

Why??? Wouldn't you want to avoid having things that your poi could catch on? A had with a brim would make even something as basic as the windmill a lot more difficult than it needs to be.

If it clips the hat, it'll momentarily be quite close to your head, potentially shedding a little fuel in your face while its at it.

I would suggest a tight-fitting beanie before anything with a brim.

If you are hitting yourself in the face that often, do not spin fire....

I'm kinda missing female qualities for the "bacon idea", but the next time I'm probably gonna hang a rack of ribs in front of my d****. The evening would be (culinary) enjoyable even if I'd hit myself in the balls,
