    Yes Frankenstein, Fire IS bad.First, you need to think about your dance outfit as a whole. The pieces should not be viewed as separate things, but as one unit, made of of matching or complimentary pieces. One color scheme and design pattern throughout. Think of colors that work well together, or that represent certain tribal groups (if you know your heritage), maybe you have family colors or designs? The first thing you need to do is think about an overal color scheme. Once that is done, then think about the various pieces in your outfit and what you want to invest in it. I mean time and/or money. Bustles are not a good first project. Maybe you should start with something smaller to begin with?

        Well Hulk, you need more than one color. Perhaps shades of green and white, maybe a little purple too?

            Well HULK, I don't really like kits. I've had to help several people in the last couple of years who bought kits and then tried to make something only to smash them and then send them to me to finish.

            Although for beginniners, some kits aren't bad. Don't expect a full, good set of bustles from a kit though, they don't have enough spikes or hackles. They will be small and "thin", but it might be just what you need to get started. It will teach you how to do some of the basics, skills that you will need for your next set of bustles.

                    Traders typically sell hackles by the oz or lb, by color. The longer the better. Most have a 5-6" and a 6"-8". The 6-8" is what you need (although secret suppliers have longer).

                    Hackles also come in 2 types, those make from natural hackles (these will be the dark colors) and those from hackles that have been bleached white (these will be the light colors)

                        Okay Frank, why don't you pick colors that don't look like fire then.

                                I am new to the forums. I am from North Carolina, and I am a boy scout. I have been warned about posting on this website as I understand some natives do not wish to tolerate us. I simply want to learn more about your culture, not to change it. I may ask questions of why someone would do this or that,...

                                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...
