Default Ringflash for Fashon...not macro

I really like the effect I get using a ring-flash when shooting fashion. I Just purchase a Nikon D100. I want to find a Ring-flash powerful enough for this purpose.
Has anyone tried the Nikon ring-flash.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance

You probably won't find a battery powered ring flash suitable for fashion work. Most of that is done with pack and head type strobe systems with a special ring flash head. I think Vivitar or Sunpak makes a ring flash a little more powerful than the normal macro types but it's margin for fashion work at best.

I've seen someone work whith a homemade system that used two different sizes of flourescent ring tubes and a modified pie pan reflector.
