I even found that I added peices of the boa into my full set of plumes and it looked even better. If you can't find them in the right color...dye the feathers in strong coffee for just 20-30 seconds, wash them off with soap, rinse very well, and blow them dry on a high heat setting ( to make them even fluffier) and they look PERFECT!!!!

May even you could dye the tips of feathers to imitate blacktips, with the coffee as well in spots and for a longer period of time, I haven't tried that yet though.....

I made 3 sets of full plumes that look incredible for $12.00 Cdn!

Have Fun!

hi sorry new to this thread thing but I have an idea for the skewer. If you use a turkey feather just strip from the bottom till you get the desired tip and glue the boa right to the quil of the feather. Just an idea to try. I like the idea and I am going to try it myself.

Hey that's a good idea! I just found a boa last month in Idaho and have been meaning to try it out now.

it is good to have these threads here because us newbies get a chance to learn from them I have just started on the Pow Wow.com thing and it is so great. I come from a small town and there are very few dancers here. My husband has not been involved in his culture and I am white. I had know idea how to make any thing i just took pics and made my daughtes first outfit from that. It is so cool getting all these tips. Thanks everyone

I have a silly question for someone out there. I was looking through a JB cataloge and they had the fluff feathers and the tips were colored in different colors. I have never seen a fake plume with colors but thought it might be neat. Is this not a good thing to do. Sorry I know nothing of the culture behind it. I just thought it would be cool and add to the Regaila.

ok. so i bought a boa, bout some floral wire and then my boa is wrapped in string, No cord to feed up threw.. aghhhh... so i cant even feed 20 gauge wire up more than three inches at a time. there is no cord center. Just six strand that are twisted and then separate when I try to shove a wire up the middle. But it looks really nice. I wish I could do this. And yes i need to dye the feathers a tad to match my real plumes. But they look yummy so far. Nice and fat! great idea! (am I using a different type of boa?)
