    Thought Provoking Belly Dance Costumes: the good, the bad and the hideous

    i have been out of the belly dance loop for a decade so I had to look that music up and no, that is not danceable. At all! What could you do with that? Nothing

    That last one! The skirt is a crotch-waterfall! That shop has so many unfortunate designs but they must be selling, they have been around for so long!

    She’s the dancer I described? the video was from a TV show? Shes still dancing? Hope so. There was also a dancer who could let a man stand on her stomach, that was scary! My belly muscles are the strongest ones I have but I would never dare to risk that party trick!

    Thats a gimmick, like rolling coins over a belly. There was someone could was able to do that with opposite directions at the same time, long ago, maybe in the ‘70s? Could be famous? American. But very impressive way more than peck muscle movements.

    I started that way. But then I realised it might be completely buried

    Guess what, I wasn’t difficult to find! I just had to think of one of our dictionary words and it popped right up! Nassels!

    Finally we have a new one to add after many many years: a floofmare. A costume so fluffy with too much fabric that it turns into a nightmare of fluffy/floof

    Where was it, not under costumes I think? I will have a look. Floofmare, so good! ‘"Costume, Tattoo, or Skin Condition?’ I vaguely remember the leg coverings like that but not in detail, was it very thinly decorated, so you couldn’t see what pattern it actually was?

    Came across this for sale, all those ruffles, so much. But I find the supposed ‘skin toned’ (depends on who wears it) pieces so hideous. Why can’t that be purple too? Those types of supposed skin tone would be so hard to match, not many people would have that exact colour.

    So no more gorgeous classic orchestra music? That’s my favourite! Especially the type Bastet Radio plays (I’m not sure it’s around anymore) Turkish music was great too, some folkloric, classic but also pop, was great in the 90s. Remember the silly Mezdeke ones? They had the most tacky music...

    luckily I haven’t seen those costumes yet in videos of actual gigs. Hopefully people will realise it’s gone out of hand. An average belly dance costume already shows a lot of skin, I used to close skirts for that reason, I didn’t like it to be all about naked skin.

    LOL I thought the same, like very fresh scar with blood haha

    That golden bra is probably something a lot of people like, but I don’t. The next picture was being sold as belly dance belts, I’m pretty sure they are cheap necklaces but you can maybe use elements from them on a costume? And the last they were also trying to sell as belts, I see that more as a...

    I feel sorry for the boobage, they are trying to escape! That tattoo placement unfortunately looks like a big scar from a distance I found some new stuff, a very ‘festive’ summery sunflower costume with the flowers placed in an not so good way. And a green one where the triangle gives an...

    the right arm has strings covered with the same big sequins and they are hanging in a loop off the arm. It is indeed very hard to see. I would prefer smaller sequins for this effect, you know those small Egyptian metal coins on hip scarves, that size would be nicer. Or those coins, I absolutely...

    I must have seen it back in the day, but can’t remember. That is probably for the best!

    For anyone who thinks those cheap ceiling fixtures you see in rentals are "boob lights"... LOL I can’t imagine what that looks like

    That red top is unexpected! That is not a good combination. I wonder who created that for her

    If incorporated properly, necklaces and earrings can work well I think. Just not as nipple adornments haha
