    I am not trying to be one, but I just wonder because no matter what watts/build I run at with 100% VG.
    I can't see my clouds getting any bigger.

    Other than the bend over exhale/inhale thing, is there something else to it?

    I think wearing black t-shirts two sizes too small has something to do with it...

    I didn't think people like that actually existed. I've heard the tales, but I thought they were like bigfoot or something. It's sort of an instinctual reaction to stereotypes. They're exaggerated by nature.

    I mean, you can almost see it in some people's demeanor... ...that they're like that on the inside, but most of them hide it pretty well, depending on who's in the shop.

    That's just amazing to me. Never woulda thought. Wow. I'm so sorry.

    There's no special trick to blowing massive clouds. It's the wrong question to ask. Just play around with different builds/power sources, practice a good bit, and you'll eventually get as far as you can go with it. Most people hit that wall and start focusing more on getting the most satisfying vape they can. There's only so much time you can spend vaping in front of a mirror... ...it's fun to chase clouds and all, but I think it's best to leave it at that.

    Having no intimate contact with the opposite sex is also a pre requisite. I think I saw a fine example of these types in a 'coil porn' thread...

    Dont let the assholes get ya down, if ya want big clouds its all in the build, wick and the airflow... you dont need to contort your body in weird positions to sneak vapor in the nooks n crannies of your lungs.

    Its all done with "smoke and mirrors"

    But really, so many things factor into it; lighting, humidity, ambient temp, etc. I ve read that adding distilled water to high VG adds a thicker cloud.

    One big thing is inhalation technique and lung capacity and a lot of practice.

    I used to vape with a basic Boge in a carto tank, 50/50 liquid. I had some pretty decent clouds ( at the time) and people would be surprised by it. I gave the setup to my brother in law and on his first puff he filled the room with such a cloud that I could not see his face. He looked like a cartoon, it looked like it was coming out of his ears, nose and mouth.

    I said damn, why cant I do that? He is a hardcore euro smoker and they "SMOKE" he did not even gag.

    Many of the reviewers , especially when the "sub-vaping" started being the thing, would be doing their " clouding vids" and yes, the cloud was giant, but almost all of them would be red faced and gagging or hardly be able to talk after their performance. Those that are doing it now have conditioned their throats and lungs . These guys and some gals have spent 1000's of hours in front of the mirror practicing and pounds of wire getting the build just right.

    3 easy steps: First, tell everyone who vapes what an awesome set up you have. Second, tell them how there set up is inferior to yours. Third, and most important, show off, show off, show off! Really let 'em know you're better!

    But cloud chasing also prevents intimate contact with the opposite sex. Paradox - which came first?

    Bragging about all the vape clubs one belongs to. Very important!

    Must be a worshipper of the vgods, pray to them every night and live your entire life by their word. Praise be the vgods!

    Overly tight jeans that squeeze the nuts helps with achieving a deeper inhale.

    Scruffy beards make a more thin yet expansive cloud due to the vapor drag off the beard.

    A groomed beard will provide a smoother more narrow cloud but more density.

    A thick mustache with a beard will blend the two above and create the perfect cloud.

    images.jpg

    Wear a dorky hat with the bill flipped upwards to angle the cloud upwards towards the vgods.

    Blurting out cool catch phrases are bound to help with clouds in both pre and post cloud production.

    Take selfies of your cloud blown into the camera, post pics on social media bragging about how you totally fogged up your camera.

    Take a selfie in the bathroom of your vape cloud titled #smokenmirrors

    You have to be a real risk taker, willing to loose a few teeth in a battery explosion or have fire blowing in your face. It helps to know only enough about ohms law and battery safety to be a danger to yourself like rely on battery pulse ratings so you can go big amps on a way too low ohm coil and make the nightly news for another example of why vaping isn’t safe, thereby screwing it up for normal vapers who take the time to learn and use vaping as only a great way to quit smoking.

    I've recently joined a Women's Vaping Comp FB group. Only now I've considered doing it, just on FB competitions. Very unofficial but serious to those who participate and are seated.

    Here I am, at my sisters, Christmas 2015, 2 yrs go. I'm all casual and take a vape. It reached the other end of the kitchen. My sister told me that her husband was going to take a picture of me but the cloud was too dense he couldn't see me. That was about 7 feet away or so. My diaphrams have been flat for several years. What do you think? I'll put up a dark cloth. Lighting is key in my opinion, too.

    Bump!
    Any help on what would be my best course of action if I wanted to use a regulated mod and kick ass RDA? I saw where one chick bought the Dead Rabbit and the gold Comp Cap. I've watched enough male comps. There sure aren't many women's comps vids out there. I'm aware they allow you to go full VG base, but I'm sure there is one brand favored another. And I'm not without knowledge on comp builds.
    The group I'm in is called Vaping Vixens on Facebook.
    Help?
    :sad:

    Ah.. well it use to be popular. Not so much now outside of the more popular Comp mods groups. Basically it would be me, making a video calling you out saying I’m firing shots at you. Then I would proceed to try and blow big clouds. And you would then make a video too firing shots back at me, and maybe idk calling a few others out too.. and so on and so forth..

    They do that on Instagram, too. I feel pretty awkward just watching someone vape, so I skip those. :confused:

    I did do one "shy cloud check" with my hair completely covering my face, I figured it was what Cousin Itt would look like if he (she???) vaped

    Panting one of your pinky nails red or black also helps bring luck during comps.
