    to funny just think of all the money that we can save by using bird bones, shells and a few shiny beads.....
    Thankful for the blessing from the Creator in my life!!!!

    Life should not be measured by the number of things that we aquire on our journey but by the number of lives that we touch along that road.

        I looked at these articles, and don't find them funny. They are offensive, and
        an insult to those craftspeople who make regalia.

          Well considering Home Depot has classes for the beginners in renovations and such, next step is @ Wally-World for the great Ragalia makers, make sure you come to our craft corner with authentic chicken, duck and turkey feathers dyed and spray painted for that traditional look!!!
          For those of you that like eating buffalo wings on tuesday nights, please start saving those bones ,,, you could make a great greasy breast plate! So the more you eat the more intense the breast plate. To give it that antique look, toss the bones outside in the kids sandbox for a few days so they get the scraped look, for those of you wanting the true antique colour, soak the wing bones in coffee for a few days!

          This is nothing but a trumped up halloween designer shot! You all have a great day and remember how to make an authentic plastic suit in rayon to go to work with in the "REAL WORLD"! LOL JK
          Listen to my heart, not just my mouth! The most powerfull thing we can do is,,,share,,, if we don't it dies with us.

          It is the year of the bear, I am sharpening my claws and will no longer tollerate harrassment.

              Alamosaurus you are right its not funny. Ignorance is bliss tho and people make mockeries. Thats not a new thing.

              ITs kinda like my crackhead relatives, I make mass jokes about their addictions, its not funny at all but its that or get quite mad and bothered.

                I am back for those of you who used to tease me when I used "Ahpi Shikopa". No, my name hasn't changed, but I decided that if you were going to tease me with "Autumn Apple Princess," I might as well use the name. No hard feelings to anyone anymore.

                Anyway, for those...

                I was wondering if any Grass Dancer had pattern for regalia, or if it should be how you think it is supposed to look. I know the dance but I am unsure of regalia.
