"Hi Joshua! great to hear from you, Happy Chinese Lunar New Year to you too!
YES we had the red heads for quite some time! since 2006, been about 5 years. They have been going strong for a very long time.
A lot of pictures of us with emplions came up in the daily news and newspaper. I will be contacting you for our new purchase again, Thank you for your emails and i appreciates it !"
Staten Island Lion Dance, USA
Thanks Robby for your emails and replies, I am greatly encouraged by your updates and your team's passion to preserve the art of Futsan and Hoksan lion dancing. Best Wishes !
"Joshua, We had the first show with the lions in front of regional authorities. The authorities were amazed at our lions. Thank you for the good quality products and services!
What head size do you recommend for children between 12 and 15 years. I'd like to buy a dragon for 2012."
Thanks Edward for your support and feedback, I recommend Emplion size 3 (54 inches rim) lion for age 12-15 years old. Kids at this age grow tall very fast, so size 3 is perfect. As for Dragon, we do have ready stock for purchase. 2012 is the year of the dragon, do buy it early to avoid sold out situation.
"Hello! A note of thanks as our beautiful drum, drumsticks and ribbon arrived
at our door today! What a wonderful surprise only 9 days after receiving
your email to say it had been shipped! Noah is thrilled with the quality of
his drum and I can not speak highly enough of your outstanding service and
communication at Emplion. We look forward to ordering through you again and
will be encouraging others to do the same."
With gratitude, Wendy, Peter and Noah Edwards (Bendigo, Victoria, Australia)
Wendy from Australia bought wood grain drum, traditional drumstick and red ribbon.

Thank you so much!

Tom from Canada bought Red Fur Gold Futsan Lion Head.
Dated May 05, 2011
"Dear Lucas and Joshua, this is Michael Ho from C.T.H. Lion dance in Buffalo,NY. I received my Futsan White Fur Silver and black Lion about a week ago. Immediately after seeing the lion and picking it up I was able to see what's all the fuss was about with Emplion lions. And I just wanted to say that the quality is absolutely remarkable! It's incredibly light as well as durable. Also the artwork on the lion is outstanding. Between our old heads and the new head, there's not even a comparison. The emplion head is immensely better in every aspect. In fact, our lion dance troupe is so pleased that we would like to make deposits for 2 new lions. I know that you're all busy until august. however I was wondering if it was possible for me to make the deposits now, then you guys can make it in august or whenever you aren't back up. I just wanted to tell the specifics on the lions and make the deposits in advance. If this is possible, I will then tell you what we're looking for. Thank you and keep up the great work!
"Joshua, I hope that your New Years was good. I do not know if you remember that our group purchased a lion from you in 2010. I believe it was a Red Sheep fur Fut San lion set. We were finally able to use it this year My Shifu and I loved how it has held up for one of our most successful New Years campaigns in the last five years. My Shifu has developed a fondness to your lion head and has now been showing our students how the construction of your lion is superior to the lions we have been buying from other vendor. With this said, we are looking to buy more lions from you. We like the Classic Fut San style and are wondering if you have any in stock currently, and if not we have a few ideas for custom colors. There is a priority to having it arrive some time in June, if we can buy from you. Please visit our team website to see our school colors as well as some of the textures we may want to incorporate in to a custom colored lion..."Thank you for your time,Rama K. USA
"Dear Joshua, I have got the two ready stock Hoksan lions ! Thank you very much ! I was very exited when I opened the package. And I am very much impressed when I watched the face of the lion. I look forward to showing my teammates these lions. I want to buy lions from you in future! "
Thank you very much Emplion.Yuya Takatori
"Dear Joshua, I have received the Hoksan Lion, i like it very much!
We'd like to order No.17 White Fur, Silver Blue Futsan ( Good Quality ), usual Price is $750 each. But now selling online at only $650. Since we bought a hoksan and this hoksan comes with a $100 rebate. Could we get the White Fur, Silver Blue Futsan now at $550? "
Please us know.
Minh, San Jose, USA
Yes you are correct. after the $100 rebate, you will get the $650 Futsan at only $550.
"I´ve got the Lion today. YEAH !!!! Its takes only 4days with the shipping, so fast. All the specs i´ve order was done and i really wanna THANK YOU SO MUCH JOSH !

Sifu Lee Chau Anh, Germany.
Germany seems to slow down in delivery lately, their custom used to be the fastest. 2 to 12 working days is still the best guide. As Christmas and CNY is around the corner, delivery may take a few more days to process. Customers are advised to buy in advance if you have a dateline to meet.
" Hi Emplion, Gong Hay Fat Choy! We used the Lions for the Parade and they were great! The Lions were perfect, much better than some of the other companies we have dealt with in the past 3 years or so. Everyone in my organization is asking me where I got the Lions from. So you might be getting more orders from our members and friends!Thank you very much!! "Brandon. Chinatown Community Young Lions NYC. USA

"Thank you very much for everything! One thing I found quite special about you guys is your service. You guys were most kind and helpful. Your advices really helped me to make the right pick and also taught me quite a bit about lion equipment that I did not know ofbefore. As for the lion,it is just plain stunning! The warm color scheme really brings out beauty of it. Also, compared to our other lions, this one is like a feather: it is super light-weight! Perfect for doing higher level moves. Again, thank you!
