    i can't see what the materials used as beads are, from my screen it looks like pebbles. But sure isn't. Replaced with minimal fringe this would work. The mirror pieces would make it extra glittery

    Darling, darling Amulya! So happy to see you here. You are the undisputed Queen of the TPBDC threads and have been so missed.

    The first one would be nice without the oddly placed blue ribbons across the chest and around the waist. Not a fan of the yellow one but it might be improved if one were to lose the sleeve and echo the hip embroidery on the bra so the latter doesn't look like someone stitched a few extra beads on a piece of yellow lingerie. The green one... I dunno. Hate the shape of the bra cups and don't like the nude/green split. The fourth one is rather nice; I'd like to see the back.

    My skirts were positively prudish by comparison. I generally had a half circle skirt in front and a full circle in the back and seamed the sides to mid-thigh. Sigh. I regret not having photos but my then-boyfiend (oops, there's a Freudian slip) took most of them and retained custody when we broke up.

    I second this. The waistband on the first could be nice on a dancer with long torso and would possibly help defining the waist.
    The green/nude one - I like the green, and the fact that there is more fabric on the other side than one would think, but I'm not a fan of nude colored costumes.
    The black one - Call me prudent, but I'd rather see a full dress with some extra bling on the hip and chest areas. Unfortunately, it seems to be quit transparent as well.

    This was a nice costume - untill I noticed the white ruffled godets. "We have some left over ruffles, why don't we add them to this nice and green left-over costume to add some extra flare?"
    Remove them, and I actually like it.

    Interesting use of lines in this one. "Feeling too skinny lately? Add some extra pounds instantly with this purple love...
    Are the diamonds sparke farts or at the hip?
    Not to forget the hipnotic chameleoned bra pattern...
    The dress itself isn't too bad, though. Too bad about the above mentioned issues. If I would make my version of it, I'd probably let go of all horisontal lines in the fabric panels and let the chiffon start further down to make it more of a mermaid style. Then I'd cover the bra with some purple fabric, integrating it into the dress (getting rid of the red straps) and redecorate it to match the hip decoration. The center of the decorated lines should be a bit further to the front. I'd also replace the red panels with mostly purple panels.

    Oh, dear, I didn't notice hoe low (another Freudian slip) that side of the brown dress went at the hip and presumably the back. TMI. Looks like there are black bikini pants under the dress so it must be a tad thin as well. Hmm. Not liking it much following closer examination. Speaking of white ruffled godets:

    This looks like a yarn factory barfed...
