I LOVE elastics, but if I have to choose one, it's headgear. Nothing beats a braceface in combo headgear.

Elastics a close second.

I think headgear is great, but not enough. When I see someone with headgear I always look what's else in the person's mouth. No braces = bad, fixed braces = better, but removable and speach-restricting appliances are the best.

Yeah, headgear without braces is a waste. Headgear with full metal braces, however, is amazing, and VERY attractive.

But it aren't the different phases of orthodontics half the fun? How about banded back teeth with bonded brackets on the front; cervical headgear at first and then graduating to elastics at the end. Perhaps even a lip bumper for a bit to get the lower teeth clean and smooth...

Given the chance, probably several things in the mouth is best:

Full braces with powerchain ( with complication of course)
Elastics (about 4-6) no more, no less.
Combo Headgear (High-pull+cervical) with single facebow
a pair of herbst
a appliance on the roof of the mouth...(i chose bite plane or expander)
something else i can't remember...

A couple days ago while I was at work, a girl who looked around 20 came up to ask me a question, she had blue powerchains on her braces and the colored elastics, it looked truly amazing.

So I'm going to have to go with elastics

My ideal would be upper biteplate and lower fixed braces with a combination headgear, then upper and lower fixed braces, still with the headgear and then retainers afterwards. I also have minor maloclusions, which this would fix :)

I’ve had almost every type of appliance available stuffed in my mouth at some stage or another. 

At the end of the day, nothing beats the look – and feel –of a classic old-fashioned interlandi headgear.  I’ve had the cervical – which is good, but the big one works best. 
Lately I have a top Hawley retainer and an interlandi, which is wonderful for adventures, and wonderful for taking out and hiding in the drawer when the fun is over.

Upper and lower braces, Herbst or Forsus because it can't be removed and creates nice little visible bumps under your lips and headgear to be worn 16-20 hours a day.

To begin with, I'd love to spend some time with an activator. After that, I'd like to get full bands, expanders on both jaws, and a tongue crib tahtd make speaking very hard. I'd also love a Herbst appliance thar causes visible lumps even if my mouth is closed, springs, heavy colourful elastics, lip bumpers and high pull headgear.
