You might need to make a Prussian flag. Since it's not a country anymore.

I would totally buy a flagpole without the flag, since that way you could swap out the flag every time you wanted a different one.

Yeah~! I'll totally collect them anyways! >: D In my house we have...two big American flags, one Irish flag, one British flag, one Italian flag, one flag with sixteen Eouropean countries' flags, and one white flag with a tomato on it~ XDD Seems like a good start.

There's all sorts of flags on Ebay. The 3' x 5' ones generally sell for $8, including shipping.

Well, as someone mentioned before, on eBay they're only 8 dollars and free shipping. ^^ INCLUDING SHIPPING.

Yayy I found an awesome flagpole at Big Lots today~ It was really cool until I got it home and realized that Sakuracon is the next con I'm going to and there's no way I'm getting it on a train. Do you guys have any suggestions for something collapsible? Maybe like a shorter curtain rod that will extend or something I was thinking but I dunno. Do they make collapsible flagpoles? Lol I was bummed that I didn't have one this year. The awesome flagpole will have to wait until next Kcon~ o.o; *dork*
How much did it cost you and where was the store? : D

You can totally get a flagpole in the train. It'll just be kind of awkward.

Haha my roomie said I could probably take it on the train too. I thought they'd be strict about that sort of thing. I've never ridden a train before. >.<;

I got the flagpole at Big Lots and it cost $6. It's got the little hooks for hanging a flag and they swivel around so the flag won't ever drape weirdly. I wish flags were included, that would be amazing. XD

Ahh that's cool. I wasn't sure.

I'm not sure I want to bring a flag, though, since I'll already have a sword. (If I do the Hetalia cosplay I want to do...) I don't know how many props I want to carry around. I might have to give up on the chain mail, though, since apparently there is no good way to make convincing fake chain mail.

Well, sometimes it's free shipping, but the flag is $8. Other times the flag is $3 but the shipping is $5. Same thing, either way.

3' x 5' flags aren't that small. I had to tuck mine into the clip at the top of my flag pole to make sure it didn't drag on the ground. DX

Where is Big Lots?

Big Lots is a chain that buys up discontinued stuff from other stores. It's all over the place, though I think I heard somewhere that Central Oregon is lacking one. There's one right across from my apartment complex here in Eugene. There was also one where I lived in Cali. n.n

@Jacob_Blackfeather: flag fans are an awesome idea. <3

Roseburg has a Big Lots, too! ^^ (like, the one store we DO have. xD)

Jacob, I used to have an American flag fan. . Don't remember what happened to it, though. D:

Flag fans sounds like a great idea!

I live in Portland normally, but I'm in Ashland for college. (And I'm so excited about checking out some stores here; there's a big Shakespeare festival so they're sure to have some really great costume-related stuff!)

About flagpoles and trains: if you get a collapsible flagpole, you'll be fine. This last convention was my first one taking the train down to Portland, so beforehand I spent a lot of time looking at Amtrak's site for things that are/aren't allowed - and it seemed like the pole would fall under "not" allowed, since in a collapsed state, it's very much a bludgeoning object. So I didn't take mine. Lo and behold, I get to the station thinking it's going to be something like an airport, where there are security checks and whatnot... no, not at all. I could have gotten on that train with a backpack full of tiny endangered monkeys that were holding tiny endangered monkey-sized fully automatic rifles, and so long as they weren't visible, no one would have cared.

So by trying to be a good citizen, I was completely denied my flag epicness. But people can learn from my mistakes! At least I can bring it for Sakuracon without any problems. I'll need to get an Icelandic flag, too.

Oh yeah, that's totally true. Train security is pretty much nonexistant. I suppose they figure no one would bother trying anything on a train.

My god... the backpack full of endangered monkeys with machine guns is also a go then. I was wondering if I'd have to leave that behind. 8D

Awesome, I'm so taking the flagpole. Edit: Mine's not collapsible but I'm still gonna try now I think since I already bought it. XD

You know what I think?

I think someone should make an '10 thread, because I'm already in charge of the one piece group and I don't want to be in charge of another.

It's funny. Jacob_Blackfeather and I were just talking about making the '10 thread.
I was just gonna get on and make it, but since Malaria said she'd make it, I'll let her do it. ^^

Maybe we should just take the year off the title completely. Because I think that'd be really cool, if we kept the same thread going.

We can't take the '09 off the title unless Hashi does it.
Also, it'd probably help new people immensely if we didn't give them 200 pages to read right off the bat.
