At my first feis, I didn't wear sock glue because we didn't know it exsisted! I also didn't have a wig yet, and my mother bought me my first pair of dance socks and bloomers there.

I didn't bring Sock Glue either - I didn't know it was required in Beginner. Then one of my friends who was in Intermediate said I should put some of hers on. So mum bought some at the next Feis.

God, I even used to forget to take water to class! My first feis was 10 minute's drive from my house though so no biggie if I forgot anything. There used to be four feiseanna per year at that venue. None anymore :(

Sock glue was pretty rare when I started dancing. Me and my sister used Pritt Stick and you know what, it worked!

I forgot my number holder. My first feis was an almost 2 hour drive from home, and I was competing at 8 am. We spent the night before near the feis, so I triple checked that I have everything!

It never occurred to me that I would have the most wicked dry mouth because of nerves at my first feis. So, I did not have a water bottle. I wish I had. My mouth was like cotton! Now I always bring one.

Cute idea for a thread!

Most of these are things that I didn't even HAVE when I did my first feis. We bought bloomers at the feis, I borrowed a dress, wigs were not at all common then, neither was sock glue. I guess I brought along my ghilles (purchased via mail with a faxed tracing of my foot!) and I think I might have had poodle socks from having gone to one feis to watch. I wore a blouse and skirt in case there wasn't one available, but borrowed a dress from someone. I dont remember anything about water, that was so very long ago. My mom might have packed me a water bottle, but its likely that I would have just drank from the drinking fountain at the church.

I used to always be without socks and sock glue. I usually planned to buy new socks on arrival, and typically would borrow sock glue from a friend. Since I only used it on rare occasion, I would just never remember to pack or, or couldnt find it, or didnt want to spend money on it. Yup, I was a chronic sock-glue mooch.

My mom used to go get me a number holder and a pair of socks first thing at every feis. Sometimes she'd bring it back and I'd be like "oh, I have a number holder." Cleaned out my feis bag and found 4 of them a few months ago!

I forgot to wear something that I could properly warm up and stretch in... It never even occurred to me that I would want to wear something other than my stiff school dress or jeans... haha! Lesson learned.

I forgot my fiddle! yea, I was doing the fiddling competitions as well as dancing...thankfully it was only a 10 min drive from our house, so my mom was able to drive back and get it before I had to play. :)

I didn't know that sock glue existed then so I didn't bring that, I didn't need a wig, I'm pretty sure I had water and shoes and everything because I don't remember it being a fuss...
I needed a needle and thread! In one of my heavy dances I caught the heel of my shoe on the hem of my dress (which was made of satin) and ripped it.

I had to wear black tights so the socks & glue were not an issue and I did bring my tights. Actually, I think I didn't forget anything, though I can't remember whether I had something to drink, so I chose that. But although I was new at feising, I was a Champion Highland Dancer so I wasn't new at competing.

I didn't know about sock glue and didn't have a wig, I wore a simple white top and black skirt. I forgot hairspray and all my curls fell out! Also, I didn't have fake tan... I dread to think how pale I looked!

My Hornpipe!! My first feis was a Halloween costume feis, so the fact that I didn't have a dress wasn't an issue. I had socks, but they were kind of grey because they were borrowed, and a wig that didn't match my hair color. I remembered water, but was so nervous about staying hydrated that I drank water constantly and then just had to pee about every minute. :P I checked everything about a dozen times before we left, but of course I got half way through my hornpipe and my mind just went blank. I made up the entire second step. :O

I forgot my shoes - but I actually did it on purpose as I still had ballet pumps when I first started and I wanted proper shoes. Simple answer forget the shoes and then Mummy and Daddy have to buy me some!

Safety pins!! You don't realize how many pins you need until you only have two with you.
