And velour kite bag. Wink

I'll chip in $5 for the Unicorn appliquéd rainbow Mojo for Mike.
I'll even throw in a Kenny G CD and nice rainbow tail to further enhance it!  Grin

Right. That should do it.

skb™, your 2nd mock-up in pink is even nicer than the black.  Smiley

So we have:

1 Pink and rainbow Mojo UL
2 Unicorn applique
3 Rainbow 100' tube tail (7" diameter hopefully)
4 Velour kite sleeve or bag (not sure how generous JimB wants to be)
5 Prism blue&red lineset (I'll throw that in)(red on the right Mike)

Pink and rainbow kites rule:


Unicorns also rule:

That pink rainbow unicorn mojo with the tail has Mike's name written all over it.
I'll chip in $20 to get it bought and another $30 to watch him fly it.  Wink

Here are some DD.

The Mojo went through a couple of different panel layouts.
The one being offered currently is my favorite.

The (far upper right) black and FL Yellow (green) is my standard.
I wanted a matching UL in white and FL Yellow, alas, I was denied.  Cry

Hate is a strong term. Then again so is aggravated assault with a hatstand so let's drop this, I beseech you all.  Huh

Like all "I've spent some time with a kite colouriser" threads... do you really care what anyone else thinks ? Pick your kite. Have the courage of your convictions and pay no heed to the mean folk who keep this thread going.

Mike.

Such a hater's thread over there.

Where are the good vibrations?

Of course, I could be licking my wounds from so many of my kites in the thread.

I don't think my brain is wired for artistic things. I feel much better having other people let me know what they think. Problem now is that a few more choices were added to the mix. I was leaning toward putting white on the bottom to replace the grey but most people like the yellow/Blue Angels combo. Then John C posted a picture of a RWB kite and I made one up like that. If I'm picking the colors Id like it to look like they are custom (different). RWB is usually not my first choice but it really does stand out.

I'm the type of person that likes to get all input available and then decide that way I figured I made the best choice possible.

I have about 2 weeks to make a decision and will be looking over the poll results and posts until then. In the meantime Kenn needs to block me from the colorizer! Smiley

I hear ya about playing with the colorizer....spent a lot of time for my mamba last fall and the new mojo coming!!!!
After many versions and days of changing my mind the solutions and final choices were relatively easy.....lol.....
For the mamba I went back to my first idea of a companion colour combo to my Killer Bee
see:     http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=6666.0
Although I was still sort of torn to another design not colour combo....see the thread.... I guess that means I'll just have to start saving again......curses/thank you Ken!!!
The mojo was a little easier given the colour/fabric choices available...ie no black ruled out a bunch of designs. The "not every panel" option also ruled out a version of a "bird" design....a la John Chilese' black and fl yellow (green)..... No biggie......but for me this was the deciding factor...the image/implied graphic of the kite, the colour came next in the design.
One of Ken's remarks....some folks like white in UL's, plus seeing a few pix/vids of an all white Rev Zen, my single colour (gold) Pro Dancer sul and all black Rev 1.5 it became apparent....go for an all white "ghost" mojo. Given the ocean and forested backdrop of my
flying space, my slow old school flying style, and how the light reflects off of various patterns/colours of my kites the choice on (non)colour was easy.....again lol.... There is a plus factor in that my single colour ghost mojo may well be a real rarity!!!  Grin Not that any of these kites aren't rare already....and they're not even made yet.....
I'm sure your mojo will be beautiful....I like some of your selections more than others...a
couple are pretty close to some of my designs!!!

If you still can't decide on a single design, you can always buy a 2nd mojo. Ken still has a few left.  Wink

Just a quick note... thanks for everyone's help. Even though I went with something totally different, everyone's posts were very helpful.

Ken is running out of colors so my choices needed to change. I liked the idea of an UL being white ('cause we all agree that white fabric si lighter). I went with all white and just red wing tips. Red was bold and pops. I also have a MSE that is mostly red (keeping red in the BM family). Lastly, I just needed to pick something and get it in.

I'm happy with the choice as the kite color is different then mass produced kite colors and it stands out as being different. I also did not need to worry about where to put all of the color combos.

Thanks!
