    What's the story behind these males? I like their costumes - kinda folksy!

    We're talking south Texas heat and an extra layer of non-breathable fabric. However, even a full slip didn't help guard from crinoline rash. The raw edges poked through everything. One simply suffered for fashionable beauty. Raw edges could've been bound in bias tape, I suppose, but my mother wasn't a seamstress and I was too young to know how to bind edges.

    "The male dancers of Al Fellahin, circa 1978, Takim, Najib, Rick Dillenbeck, Jamal and Roberto."


    One of the good things I've come across on FB is The Historic Belly Dance Collective. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Hist...ctive/?fref=nf

    I've not been keeping up so apologies if this has been done, but I saw this just now and felt it deserved a tpbdc mention.

    The blue stream down the back of the skirt is kinda ill-advised, but the front is making me lol every time I look at it.

    Hi, Aniseteph! Good to see you here. I'm going to be in London the end of April. Will wave toward Sussex!

    People must do these designs on flat fabric without a thought as to where the design will fall when the costume is worn.

    The first is Cinderella Meets Baby Bell Dancer and might be adorable on a young girl. Love the deep teal color of the fourth costume.
