    ROTFLMAO on that one! Holstein is a great comparison!

    This is apparently a ‘vintage’ Madame Abla, do those exist in vintage? This looks too modern to be remotely vintage. Nice costume, but they only started doing embroidery on top on skirts in the 00s didn’t they, never saw anything like that before.

    Recently there was an interesting discussion on Pattern Review re: what constitutes vintage and what constitutes antique. The general consensus was antique is 100+ years, vintage is 50+ years, retro is 30+ years, and anything under 30 years is just unfashionable. Don't quote me on that, though, because I didn't bother to search out the original thread before I wrote this.

    I'm not a big fan of costumes featuring close-fitting lycra skirts with cutouts and embroidery and lots of little accessories like detached sleeves and weird calf accoutrements (see the gray and wine costume below: looks like she is making the best of an ace bandage needed to support a muscle strain). Bicycle shorts under costumes don't do much for me, either, though they are certainly handy for keeping one's modesty under abbreviated skirts. I do like the costume featuring red roses. Skirt is smooth enough for fashion and flowing enough to enhance movement.

    Found the following browsing Dalahl's site. The teal green is interesting but not very well planned for presenting a dance that emphasizes hip articulation. The gold and pink is another evil eyes costume with retro '80s vibes. It is curious that the old-fashioned full skirt and bedlah is categorized as "triberette." Not even sure what that means. Explanation from anyone still involved in costuming themselves?

    That calf thing is just...... a leg warmer! The green one is odd, that just hides all the movements.

    The corset cover-thingie comes off to reveal a traditional bedlah.

    At least it can be taken off, But what would be the use of it? Coverup for in between dances?

    Holstein or not, I'd probably rather emphasize the patterns in the basic fabric aroun the hips and bra than put on the pink on top with a pattern that didn't match the fabric.
    If insisting on a third colour, make simple and it in bold fields. Maybe draped along the edges?

    I suspect it is just for pretty. Doesn't cover much up.

    Who remembers these Turkish costumes? Does anyone know who the dancer is?
