Post Bustle storage and transport

What does everybody keep their bustles in when not in use or traveling to a dance?

I have seen some fancy wood octagnal feather boxes and some metal trash can lookin things. What do you use?

The first bustle I made I stored in a container I made out of 4" diameter vent pipe.
The second bustle I made was stored in a heavy duty plastic container with a handle that is 25"X10"X9" that my Dad's place of business was throwing out in a
company move.

My brother keeps his stored in a suitcase. Works very nicely and keeps the feathers looking good! Great for traveling to powwows!

As an old style dancer with a round bustle, it's pretty easy. The bustle collapses and is easily packed in a 16" X 16" box or on top of most everything else in a medium sized suitcase. The spikes take the most time to remove from the rawhide base -- just because I'm extremely careful and would rather spend the time taking them off than having to get everything untangled when I put the bustle back together.

i just fold my feathers when i'm at home and roll them when i travel. it's important not to sit on them! that's the key in my book ;)

I don't know of a simplier way to transport them, because my extenders are so long, but I just collaspe my bustle and place it very last in my car, off of everthing. It's the only way I can keep the fletching of the feathers from splitting enroute. When I get to the Powwow I set up my bustle first, and go from there.

When at home, I hang my bustle on the wall in dance condition. That way I can easily see the wear and tear on it, or different things I want to do with it. It also makes a cool wall decoration :D

I do the same thing as Tuscaroran, It's a little tricky to keep it from getting hit while the car's moving, but it is the only way to make sure your feathers didn't get messed up sitting in a box, plus my spikes are too long for any suitcase, tried that already.

This weekend at a pow wow I saw a gentleman store his bustle in a long plastic container that could be used to store rolls of gift wrap paper. It was probably 3 feet long.
