Hmmmmmmm! Quite a performance! May I ask is this a public or a
semi-private, more *discreet* performance. The reason I ask there are
several variables.

1) How much of you do you wish to cover? I for instance would need
LARGE butterflies.
2) How LARGE are you? Are you male or female? Oh, I see from your e
mail address, you are a "hybrid".
3) Do you have a permit for this?
4) Do you intend to wear this "buttefly shirt" for a while, since
some species are more active than others? Are you going to be moving
around? Why can you only last a half hour or so?
5) Is this exibition, excuse me ...performance, inside or outside? I
ask this because outside can be risky. Does Estonia have large,
painful ants? 
6) I know of breeders who can doe this but it takes time and money.
Do you have much time? do you have any money? You know butterfies are
not for free. I ask this because I have a fear that you may not be
gainfully employed. I fear, quite frankly, that you may not have much
time before the men in white suits with the nets might "collect" you
and return you to your mental hospital. 

I have I last question...Are you Rene Boutin? :)
