    Default Robe for Michelle UPDATED!11-13-05 Robe COMPLETED!

    I posted this in feedback, but thought more people would probably see it here. It might belong in projects, but not many people check there that often.

    Here's an idea I had when thinking about worlds going on etc.

    We should get together and buy Michelle a boxing style robe like from Million Dollar Baby. It could be RED and GOLDand we could put a saying in chinese on the back of it or maybe some words such as "Joy,Passion, Heart" in chinese, on the back. I think that if she decided to go to the olympics, it would rock. Not that I'd expect her to wear it out to the ice or anything, but just something to have that kinda let her know her fans were there with her. We could put "USA" on it somewhere or a saying from the MKF, or other ideas etc.

    People have had Michelle down for the count, many times. And she always comes back and has a KNOCK OUT performance to prove them wrong. I thought this would be cool.

    Thoughts? Comments?

    I like it. It is the perfect combination of cool and a little bit corny which makes it a perfect gift from her fans.

    Yay Im glad people are interested.

    Ive been checking around on the internet to see about some different style boxing robes. If we can get a boxing robe, my roommate is in textiles at North Carolina State University, and they have machines that embroider. She's a graduate student, so she's been doing this for a long time. She's also taiwanese american, so she could verify the symbols used, because she speaks it with her family, and she took classes on it as well at NC State. She said we could embroider the chinese symbols on it, more than likely. Or we might be able to find somewhere to have it done, where we buy it. Robes are about 60-70 dollars from what Ive seen, and thats a good "Everlast" brand robe. Ill research some more when I get some time this evening, and see what else I can find out! I know that Everlast has the custom robes where you can choose the red robe with the gold trim, which is awesome! So Im thinking thats probably our best option, but Im going to look around some more just to make sure

    Ill update later this evening!

    With the # of members we have, I don't see that starting price range as out of reach so.... good start! Not to mention, you've got good connections to get it made and done! This is exciting! I didn't join MKF until AFTER that beautiful medal was made for Michelle. I can't wait to be apart of this gift.

    Update: Still looking around on the web. So far Everlast's brand robe is looking like the best option since they have the customized colors. The only thing is that they have the "everlast" brand on them kinda large. Im not sure if its just for the advertisement or if it really comes like that. But Ill continue to look around for a bit more. My roommate and I were trying to figure out what kind of material the robe was made out of. After we find some options for different robes, Ill put them up to vote on, and then we can decide on ideas of what to embroider on the robe and vote on it, etc.

    Don't you think "Everlast" is appropriate for Michelle!!! It def describes her lengthy career!!

    Hehe I'd definitely say Everlast is appropriate for Michelle.

    Ok here's a link of a "Title" brand robe. It lets you customize the color and trim

    store.titleboxing.com/srfl.html

    And here is the Everlast brand one

    store.everlastboxing.com/...-robe.html


    Sorry its taken me so long to update. Been busy down at my parents, and watching Worlds.

    So there are the two best kinds that I could find online.

    Now we need some Ideas for slogans or sayings on the back of the robe, and front.

    As Ive said before, chinese characters with "joy" "heart" etc, would be great. And then some sort of saying for the back. Or maybe just the Chinese Characters on the back with the english word under each one.

    Im thinking red with the gold edges, would be the most appealing to the eye, and its the chinese colors *and colors of her dresses this year*

    Anyhow, what are your Ideas for sayings etc?

    Also, which would be better? A full length robe or a 3/4. I was thinking 3/4 so it isn't too long. And we also need to decide if we want a hood on it or not.

    What are your opinions?

    Btw, if mods move this to projects, then can they leave this one and delete the other one since more people have responded to this one?

    I have always liked this idea from the beginning! And, I like the title brand robe better.

    Im thinking red with the gold edges, would be the most appealing to the eye, and its the chinese colors *and colors of her dresses this year*
    Again, I agree with the red and gold OR red and black would be good too.

    Also, which would be better? A full length robe or a 3/4. I was thinking 3/4 so it isn't too long. And we also need to decide if we want a hood on it or not.
    I too think 3/4 would be more flattering for Michelle because she is short so.... It would just look better.

    DMBChic, I want in on this, I think this would be great for Michelle. I love the idea. Just let me know how much I need to send and it will be off in the mail to you.

    Kathy

    edited to add* I like 3/4 and no hood red with gold. I also like title better maybe on front where title is we could take that off and put KWAN. You can also PM me for the amount that you need.

    Ok another update lol

    I called the Title boxing robe people and found out that the robes aren't lined, which is ok I think. They can be lined, but its double the price.

    Since they are custom made, the woman said that we don't have to have the "Title" patch on it.

    They don't do embroidering*but like I said, my roommate can take care of that*

    And it can be any color combination.

    Like I said, I was thinking either Red with Gold trim or vice versa, since those were the colors of her dresses this year, and also the chinese colors

    Im going to put a deadline on when people can confirm that they'll contribute to the robe. Lets say by next Sunday, which is April 3rd.

    You can pm me on here or email me at Satellitegirl@hotmail.com and let me know that you'll contribute. After everyone has emailed, Ill see how much it would be per person. Ill post how much that is, and if you can't contribute that amount, its fine. Just contribute what you feel comfortable contributing. The Robe is only going to be a lil over 60 dollars though, so I don't think its going to be that much per person at all, considering all the people that are wanting to be a part of it

    What colors do you want it to be?

    Do you like

    1. red with gold trim
    2. gold with red trim
    3. other(your suggestion)

    What chinese symbols do you want on the robe?

    I was thinking "Joy" "Heart" and "Passion"
    or "Joy" "Heart" "Courage"
    or "Joy" "Heart" "Grace"
    or "Joy" "Heart" "Happiness"

    Which of those do you like? or what other suggestions do you have.

    Post your answers here by next Sunday, April 3rd for your choices.

    Hopefully after that we can get some things set in stone

    Ill keep this thread bumped up occassionally so people see it
