  • Compact Disk in bustle ?

    I noticed what I thought was a CD in the middle of a bustle. I couldn't get close enough to get a good look at it. My husband said it was a CD and that he's seen that occasionaly ever since they switched from tapes to CD's. He's been to alot more Powwows in alot more states that I have. Anyway, i've never noticed this before.
    Is this something common and i've just been blind?
    And, why a CD ?
    Is my husband just teasing me and its realy something other than a CD?

    Like I said I just saw it from a distance. And, I admit one of the many things i'm totaly ignorant about is mens Regalia.

    I've seen this done before. I imagine dancers like the irradescent shimmer that you get from a CD but cannot get from a mirror. Your husband is probably not pulling your leg.

      yea i seen cd's on fancy bustles a lot. i myself have cd on my bustle, my cd is under my medalion that hold my bustle together. i also have a cd in the middle of my arm bustle, and it also has a medalion over it. i guess i used that instead of something else to hole up my bustle and my arm bustle because its shinny and i like the way it reflects from the sun because it has a glossy cover, i like it and its commonly used now-a-days.

        Used them in the same way for my son when he used to fancy, about the time they first came out. Put the medallion on outside of if and get a nice effect.

          I did a double take as well when I first saw it.

          A fine example of recycling (or what to do with all those stupid AOL CDs they send all the time)

            cd's are okay-they add some shine

              IMHO I'm pretty sure that if the old-timers had CD's, they would have used them.

                Yup I have CDs in my arm bustles. I dont use em in my back bustles, they dont last. I guess there is too much torque back there, when I get back the disks are usually gone. I like to use the red ones, to go with my outfit, they are hard to find anymore. I dont mean a red label either, when you flip the disk over its red all the way though.

                  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?

                  Help with my bustle????
                  by austanley5
                  Hey guys! Just stopping in to ask a quick question. Basically, I am working on my 1st bustle and I've got quite a bit of it done. It's a swing bustle and, being my first, it's not PERFECT, but it is a nice bustle. My big issue is, it moves around... a lot. it looks and feels like it is going to fall...

                  new bustle
                  by sookout sh'nob
                  I'm making a new bustle set - two outer rows and no extenders. I've never made this style (no extenders), and I'm wondering if anyone on this board has made a fancy bustle without dowel extenders before and how many spikes they used? I'm trying to ball park my materials here.

                  I'll be getting another bird in the next few weeks, and I'll be adding an inside, and outside row to my bustle (I currently have 1 row, 52 feathers, I'm thinking about breaking that down to about 40 feathers, and creating a "dish" style on the inside) then using the new golden (immature, still)...
