I just got some martins legs, a 6 foot shark windsock, and an HQ porcupine thing from a friend today for 40$. That should hold me for a bit, I am still looking for something decent sized for eye candy. I am looking at this octopus (5.5ft x 33ft):
this kite thats 4.2ft wide with a 164ft tail
and a few of these 24ft tube tails
all for cheaper than about 150$. Well in my budget range. If I can find a better paying job soon I should be able to afford something much, much bigger in half a year or so. If you have any suggestions of something a bit more "look at me!" for around 200$ tell me so, haa. I should be able to afford that in a few months with my current college student paying job. I figured I can put about 25-50$ a week into savings and still be able to live normally and pay for housing and tuition on time.
