Exclamation Powwow Project 101

OK I decided to start a new thread one that will pertain to any and all ideas from everyone. Webmaster has brought to my attention that maybe some of your would like to start small to see how everything would run. I have put that into consideration and decided to start a poll with this thread..to have any and all people who wish to help in this project to vote on wether you'd like to start off small by perhaps making individual items or if you would like to just wing it and go all out on making a total outfit with all the trimmings. I am up for making the outfit, but I don't want to start something if we all aren't sure on wether we won't to put the time in on it that it may and will require to get the project rolling along and someday finished.( We all know an outfit is never finished ) but atleast this will get someone looking and feeling good when they enter the arena.
First things first....
1.) We have to decide on what sex the outfit will be for.
2.) We will have to study while at any and all powwows that we go to, to see what age of children are dancing. We can then decide on what size to make the outfit depending on what age the child is, although no one person is the same size...
3.) We will have to take a list of all the people that truely want to help with this project, there will be alot of time that will have to be put in on the outfit itself. ALthough there is no limit on how little or how much time and work you put into the outfit...We just ask that each person help with bringing it all together.
4.) Each person that is in on the project will have to consider they will have to send out the item to the next person..wrapped securely and will have to pay their own postage.
5.) Nothing is to be taken off the outfit unless granted permission by the person who put it on or unless voted by all those who have helped with the outfit.
6.) The order in which the outfit would rotate...I thought that perhaps we could make up some kind or contest and then send the outfit in the order from top to bottom?
7.) I have had some very good suggestion from a few people on here on what should be done with the outfit when it is "finished". One would be to put it up for auction on ebay instead of doing a raffle at a powwow in this way you would widen the chances or hundereds of people seeing it and open the birth for many more bidders to bid on it. Second you could have a contest of some sort and present to the winner. But the main idea for this project was to bring people from many different nations together and work on creating an awsome outfit. Perhaps put a little of something from each of their tribes. And then raffle or aution it off and then take the money and give it to a charity or good cause. In doing it that way you not only give someone an awsome outfit you also help out a charity with what money is raised.

These are some of the ideas that I have so far and some that other people have mentioned to me. This thread is open for all ideas. Don't be afraid to mention any of them no matter how big or small or far fetched they may seem. This thread is also a roll call for everyone that wants to be included in on the project a simple yes at this time will include you on everything that happens from this point on..e.g ideas and decisions etc...
