    WTFusion = WTF + Fusion

    Fauxloric or Fakeloric = Reda-style folkloric that isn't really folkloric, but looks it. ***

    *** maybe more of a general dance term than and OD term, but still.

    Do we add things like "6-week wonder" and "Turkish Airport Special" ?

    It's one of those really tacky bellydance costumes you can buy at the Turkishn airports. I've seen one or two that were actually passable but most of them look about the same as one of those Halloween costumes you can buy at the adult costume stores.

    6-week wonder is a real classic one and Turkish airport special I heard a while back on Bhuz for the first time.

    There is also the 3am zill brigade and Bhuz used to have (maybe still has) an emoticon for it.
    What does it mean? If a dancer needs punishment for something unforgivable she has done a brigade of belly dancers with zills will start playing under her bedroom window at 3am...

    Oh and there is also the belly dance police.

    I'm afraid Bhuz claims most of the words, so we have to come up with some new ones!

    In Holland we have the 'belly dance fundamentalists', which refers to students of Soraya Hilal who think they do the pure form of raqs sharqi. Not many people outside of Europe know about this stream of dancers I guess.

    I remember we were talking about slapping people with a beaded gauntlet (ouch!) if they were dragging bellydance in the dirt or otherwise misbehaving. I am not sure we had a specific word for this action though b!t(h- slap or something perhaps...

    ETA: Oh oh oh I remember now! It was called a BOB-slap! (bitches of bellydance)
    Adiemus even made this amazing image:

    How about some icons? I love the Zill Brigade on Bhuz as well as the Belly Dance Police. And the one barfing - well, I bet we could make use of that one!
