Nah, it’s not a brand but a type of clothing. Like as sweater or a jacket.

Yeah, it’s sort of like a scarf, but less functional and more exotic.

I think this is what you’re looking for: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feather_boa

Are you talking about what female burlesque performers wore around their necks, as in feather boas?

The last time I was at the barbecue festival here in Memphis, there was a trailer set up where you could take pictures. You would sit on a king’s throne with a boa made too look like it was made of hundreds of big money bills. There was some king-pimp style graffiti behind the throne. They would give you a pimp cup to hold and put a crown on you. It was just awful.

The pictures look great by the way.

1. A big snake that when grown can swallow goats whole.
2. A big financial institution that can swallow people whole
3. A garment worn around the neck that when feathered can tickle the nose
4. A webserver that assists a CLinux system as it grows
5. A line of athletic wear-was that a commercial, only wilhel1812 knows

Nah, i don’t think it’s either of them… I’m adding things to a web-shop, and some of the items don’t have pics. it’s in the same category as fleeces, so i don’t think it’s the feather scarf ;)

A boa is a feather scarf like Miss Piggy wears. Because it’s fluffy, it can fill in the neck of a strapless dress and make you feel less exposed, while still looking glamorous. You can buy them at fabric or costume stores. They’re often a part of a flapper or stipper costume.

There is also a bollero, which is a short, fitted jacket or sweater, sometimes also called a shrug.
