What if one pulls a Mulan?
I still have these sitting around the house and I’m trying to sell them off sooo I’m just going to do a name your price thing, just maybe over like $3? there’ll be shipping added too, but it won’t be that much, maybe like a dollar or so depending on location. I can also add in a cord for a little more but we can discuss that laterrr. So if you’re interested please drop a message or email firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks!
they could make good gifts and stuff toooooo y’know
and I could do custom ones !
So for those of you who don’t know, I’m marching my second year of WGI. This is in addition to my third year of DCI. Costs for performing in both of these groups has increased from last year due to addition of shows/regionals for both (YAY). I also will have to pay for flights down to Southern California once camps pick up. So this year will be the hardest yet for me, financially wise.
If you can donate even just $1 to help me perform these two amazing seasons, I would be SOOO immensely grateful! You will even get a lifetime promo on my “sponsors” page!
I am proud to present the project I have been working on since September: Drum Corps International Uniform Inspired Pillows! I was suppose to announce it a while back but I procrastinated and I kept pushing it to the side but here it is!
Basically, it’s a 12x12 pillow with a handmade pillow case with the corps of your choice! You can choose from any World Class corps or if you want an Open Class corps pillow, choose ‘Other’ in the dropbox and tell me the corps you want at checkout!
I am only making 5 for now because I need to finish up bow/bow-tie orders but once I get that out, I will start focusing on these lovely creations. If you want this in time for Christmas, let me know at checkout so I can start working on it.
I do have my Black Friday sale coming up and if you purchase a pillow, you CANNOT use the coupon code. The coupon code is only for the bow/bow-ties only and if you do use it on a pillow, I will issue a refund.
But anyways, I really hope you guys like this! I was seriously proud of myself for accomplishing this and I couldn’t be any more happier! The more pillow orders I have, the more I can display in my shop so start ordering!! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧

I’m curious to see the designs for 2014
DCI, dear anon, is probably one of the most coolio things to ever grace the band world. Being an orchestral musician, I’m not an expert… but here’s what I’ve collect during my stay on tumblr!
It stands for Drum Corps International and is basically professional, kick-ass marching band.
DCI Bands have the following instruments:
Mellophone: (AKA Mello. Basically a marching French Horn. Both loved and hated by the French Horn community)
Contrabass: (AKA Contra. It’s basically a freaking tuba you put on your shoulder.)
Sorry, no woodwinds, trombones, or sousaphones. But these bands also have front ensemble. This is all the percussion stuff that doesn’t march.
Last but not least, guard. They throw all sorts of things around and look fabulous doing it.
Some of the bands that participate include:
Everyone loves this band. Everyone.
They even did a cool show called “Spartacus,” based on the ballet. You should totally look it up. I mean seriously, look what their guard did:
Affectionately known as the “purple pants band.”
Rockin’ them purple pants. Though I guess their pants aren’t always purple?
I think this band always looks very snazzy.
And of course there are a ton of other world class groups like those including the Bluecoats, the Blue Devils, the Glassmen… seriously there’s a lot. There’s also non-world class corps.
DCI has it’s own world championships. I think they’re in August, and I’ve heard it’s quite the party. Nothing like a bunch of bandos congregating together. I mean look at all of them:
TL;DR: DCI is basically professional marching band. It’s really really difficult. Bands practice constantly and it’s serious physical and mental exertion. You should salute anyone in DCI for their determination.
(This post is not all encompassing! Go look up some shows on Youtube! Go google it! Find some blogs about it on Tumblr! DCI is awesome, you should definitely join the fandom!)
