Last but not least, we have Amira, with a combination that I’m guessing many of us Star Wars fans and bellydancers have pondered- at least once or twice. ^_^ Her Leia is pretty spot-on as far as I can tell, and it is WONDERFUL to see an actual bellydancer do this idea justice. I’ve no doubt that folks have tried this before (given how bellydance-friendly the Slave Leia costume looks), so it’s great to know that at least one woman out there is doing it up well. ^_^ Oh, how I’d love to do my own version, someday! :D
And that m’loves, is it for me for today, and for -this- edition of Geek Friday vids. If you wanna submit something, suggest something, or otherwise give me evil, nefarious ideas, feel free to Ask/PM me, ‘cause I would -love- to hear from y’all. ^_^ Merry Weekending!
Next up, we’ve got a little Star Wars Saidi, courtesy of Zafirah! I love how she’s melded Leia’s white dress/uniform w/the Saidi galabeya, and how she works TWO light sabers at one point! :D
How cute is this?? ^_^
Yeep! Well I’ve unfortunately run out of time to much about today, so for THIS Geek Friday, I’m gonna choose the topic. (But if you still wanna weigh in, please do! We can put up peoples’ requests for next week! :D)
For today’s Geek Friday, we are starry-eyed, all the way!
..Well, Star WARS-y eyed, anyway! ^_^ For our first Geek Friday submission, we have a Wookie, BELLYDANCING! XD (And to a Klingon band, no less! So I guess for this one, we have a little Star-genre fusion. ;D) This is adorable and hysterical, and mehopes you like it as much as I do. ^_^
Have a great weekend, and may the Force be with you! ^_^
Hey guys! Just popping in to see what -y’all- may want for GF! Star Wars..? Comic books..? Anime..? Whatcha thinkin’..? I have some ideas, but want to hear from you! ^_^
She is SO CUTE! -And working double sword, no less! :D
This pic makes me wanna caption it; “Look, Ma! No sword-face!”
Loving this SO HARD!!! XD
Srsly.. how badass is this piece??? And when they start doing the drops and windmill kicks??? *dies* I -absolutely- lost it, y’all. *chuckles* I was quiet up until then, and suddenly- WHAM- total fan-girl. No joke. Of course I was loving it throughout, but at that point, I was -literally- hooting & hollering at my computer, and when it finally ended, I unabashedly cheered.- Like.. IRL. *lol* LOVE THIS!!! ♥♥♥
To those who think you need to be one gender or another to bellydance, I say check THIS out!!! ^_^ We’ve got rather butchy gents, rather femmy gents, gents who seem somewhat gender fluid, and they are ALL freaking YUMTASTICLY FIERCE. How can you go wrong??!! ^_^
Out of the whole beautiful bunch (of whom I adore every one, btw), I think my particular faves are the guy in all the scarves (on wrists and draping from his noggin) w/the face fuzz, the 2 short-haired gents often dancing side by side in the pointy-hemmed, sleeveless crop tops (especially the smaller one- his attitude, energy & moves were sublime!), and of course, that fluffier dancer in the mix, who TOTALLY rocked it out center stage at one point! Yee-ESS!!! (And can I just say right now how much I adore that they included a fuller-figured dancer in this? Thank you guys for that, too! ♥♥♥) ..Just.. LURVE!! XD *cheers insanely*
-And if you DO like what you see, you should check out this li’l photoshoot I featured of the amazing, the incomparable (and the imcomparably sweet) Bagoas here, long ago too. :)
Oh! Plus if YOU”RE a gent (or know of one) who’s interested in bellydance (or if you just dig ‘em and wanna find a list), I have an ever-growing compendium of male bellydancers (alongside resources for our dancing male friends) available here. ^_^ (So if you know of one I’ve missed, please, drop me a line! I wanna catch ‘em all! ;D)
Hope y’all dig, and no matter WHO you are, happy dancing! ^_^
*shakes head n’ sighs*
This makes me want to go up to her at that moment and say “Really? That’s lovely! ..Yanno, I have the body to be a bellydancer, too. -Because I -am- one.. and I weigh over 200lbs. Just so ya know, bellydance is NOTabout the size or shape of the body. Your body is lovely indeed, but ANY body can bellydance.”
Fight the misconceptions, people. Try to be kind while you’re doing it, but FIGHT THEM.
And don’t let others’ ignorance get in the way of your happiness, either.
Pursue your dreams, no matter WHAT size you are. Period. ♥ ♥ ♥
I have the body to be a belly dancer.
I am a happy water-baby right now. ^_^
(And a bellydance student who misses learning from her former teacher, pictured here.)
Reign on, Ms. Bella. I’ll keep hoping to become of Bellatrix, someday!

Arright, I’m OFFICIALLY calling her “Queen Zoe” from now on! XD

This is so incredible. I love the costumes, I love the music, I love the dancing, and ohhhhh, the spirit!!! This totally brought tears to my eyes, and filled my heart with wonder. I bet Mr. Compton is up in heaven right now, utterly beaming with pride, and surely, with a tear in his eye and a joyous, full heart. ♥♥♥
