    i already got my ideas started i just wanted to see sum pics of others. and i've looked already in the powwows gallierys and they r good. i drew up a pic design of what i want in the middle of my bustle, so go to www.Indiancenter.net , but its the site of a center i belong to, the Southern Oregon Indian Center or SOIC, pernounced in abb. SO-ICk....but u navagate through the site, u should see the centers costom design. im going to use that cept the circle the sourounds soic im going to devide it up in the 4 colors of the four directions red,white,red, and yellow. then the soic letters im going to bead each letter 4 each of the colors,S will be red, O will be black,I will be yellow, and C will be White, then in the open areas of the inside of the circle w/ be light blue (the whole center beaded) then im going to use cananadian goose feathers 4 the outter row of the big row w/ white fluffs w/ dark horse hair off the fluffs then the innter row will be real hawk. then all the dowls w/ be a blue yarn. then my spreads will be beaded in a light blue like the bustle center then down the middle of the roach will be a big beaded eagle feather then 4 my two roach spreaders im going to use hawk. then 4 my fan will be hawk that one of my uncles is gifting me (along w/ the bustle and roach hawk feathers) then a big (1 1/2 ft from side to side medince wheel w/ a hawk feather in the middle. then a eagle feather im going to tie on to it that i was gifted. so it will be a cool ragailia! let me know what u think..thanks

      Hau kola-

      I prefer a single row bustle of eagle or hawk but if you dont have those goose are fine. Just make sure you straighten all of the feathers really well if not then the bustle ends up looking like crap. gatheringofnations.com has great digital full color pictures of dancers like Terry Fiddler and the like- its a great site for regalia ideas. Other than that, just think of a good color scheme for the outfit and good luck dancing!

        colors

        Sometimes I'll do a sketch and color it in with colored pencils or crayons or whatever is laying around. It can really help bring your ideas together and solidify your vision of the finished regalia.

        Hope you get to eat the goose ;)

          Hey, well first i'd like to say thanks 4 the help.My uncle that is building me my double row bustle said cause its my first one that he's going to make it out of the combo of goose n hawk. 4 the outter row im going to have him make it out of canadian goose w/ white fluffs and black horse hair off of the fluffs, then 4 the inner row im going to have him make it out of hawk (i fogot the name of it, the the kind w/ the black and white on the wings) but if not that type of hawk is avabile, then im going to have him make it out of Red Tailed. then 4 the very center im going to have him bread a design i came up w/, Then 4 my roach im going to have another uncle make me a 13 inch undied nat. color porky roach w/ 2 spreaders and a large beaded Eagle feather beaded from the 2nd spreader to the end of the roach. but 4 my roach feathers i was thinking maybe the Golden Eagle center tail feather that i was gifted about puting that on the 1st spreader insted of tieing it onto the wheel im gonna carry, then 4 the back spreader i was thinking of eaither putting to hawk feathers together on the same spreader or just use 1 hawk feather 4 it. but im not sure yet, i might just keep 1 hawk feather on each spreader and put the Golden on the wheel like i first thought...then my fan will be Red Tailed Hawk tail feathers.then maybe in a year my uncle said he might build a Golden Eagle bustle 4 me....but thanks 4 the help, i would like all i can get...thanks alot

            Hwah! Sounds sharp, those canadian goose feathers look almost as good as the goose meat tastes! ;) I have a couple of fans I made from a goose we ate last summer and have really come to appreciate their colors. Look forwards to those pictures.
