Thought Provoking Belly Dance Costumes: the good, the bad and the hideous

Yes. The spacing of the appliques looks like she's trying to create the illusion of four overlapping breasts. The colours are lovely though.

LunaXJJ, those things you'd never thought they had anything to do with belly dance! What is wrong with those sellers?
Lol, I assume they add as many random tags as possible to get more viewers. To be quite honest, most of those would have trouble selling under any title. :lol:

I think that one could be fixed by moving the appliques so they blend in better.
the beaded strands looked a little heavy like they would 'flop' weird. I agree with the appliques, they need to be moved, but she may have wanted them to look like those oriental fans... who knows? I think I would have reduced some of the 'bulk' by using smaller beads and appliques, but you never know, this may have been what she was going for...

This is easy to fix: remove the circles on the cups. I don't mind the 'snout' part, it's those weird circles. It seems that this seller is rather fond of strangely placed ornaments. (this is the same seller as mentioned above, there are two costumes I really like actually)

I know this is off-topic, but hooray, I can open the attachments again!

I wouldn't know where to begin to fix that bra. It does remind me of some of the more questionable vintage designs, though!

I thank the gods for small mercies - at least she's not one of MY students! How vulgar!

I've heard of wearing one's heart on one's sleeve, but to wear one's vulva on one's bosom?

*Snork*

I love this forum.

As a feminist who loves to bellydance, I can think of few more dismaying things to find in my Christmas stocking than a large purple and green ladypart on a chain. And, 'beledi'??? WTF?
