    I feel very strongly about veil dancing...does that count? :p
    I actually have formed a very strong attachement to my double silk veils and love to mold shapes in the air with them...but I also love my rectangular chiffons too...

    The veil is that little something that can easily hide my shyness or hide the tiredness off my face, or just give me the feeling of support. It is a strange way to bond with something and make it a part of me. But it grew into addiction to scarves, veils etc. :p

    HA!

    I'm not called "The Veiled Male" for nothing!

    And I'll add what Gia said.

    Veil is my favorite prop. I would love to learn to use a double veil, but haven't managed to handle a double is such a way that I'm willing to let anyone see me do it.

    Default Double veil

    Excuse my ignorance - I've not done much with a veil apart from getting tired arms and tangled up ). And overheating in a melaya!

    What is "double veil" - two veils or one King size (Queen size?) veil?

    I love veils and the way they look, unfortunately I feel like I spend most of my time fighting with mine, so I guess I like other peoples veils more than mine

    Aniseteph, double veil is two veils. I recently learned how to weild both, and it's kinda fun. Tangled, but fun.

    I kinda like dancing with a veil, but I've come across something in my BD books that bothers me: wrapping the veil around you, and peeling it off as you dance. To me, that's pretty much affirming or legitimising the stripper-esque stereotype of BD!!

    Only if you do it like a stripper.
    Unveiling isn't sexual when a bride lifts her veil to greet her groom now is it?
    Technique and dancing well are the keys...always.
