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?? ^_^
Inspired by Mother’s Day. :) I hope you guys like! ^_^
Next for our Geek Friday video games theme, we’ve got this BADASS concoction by 2 of the members of Raks Geek, a troupe that SPECIALIZES in geeky bellydance! ^_^
Using the game Assassin’s Creed as inspiration, this is a -chill inducing- Fusion sword piece that’s beautifully staged, artfully choreographed and delightfully dark; with sharp movements & dramatic, loverly accents. ^_^ I positively adore this piece, and wouldn’t mind learning it m’self! ^_^
In fact, this reminds me a lot of Night, the president of our former bellydancing club at RU. She’s a BIG fan of computers, anime, and other awesomely geeky stuff, loved our nifty swords (that we got at MissBellydance.com- in BLACK XD), and often wears costuming like this- as well as a hoodie in her “daily duds.” ^_^ (Plus, her dancing style is somewhat similar in its form & intent, so I can -totally- see her pulling something like this off. ^_^) I bet she’d PLATZ over the costuming, choreo & intensity here, too. ^_^
So for all my darkling divas, video gaming vixens, and especially you, Ms. Night, this is for you. ^_^ I hope I get to do something like THIS w/you someday, ‘cause it is WICKED! ♥♥
Now, get ready for one strong & super badass sword piece, and hold on to your scimitars (carefully ;)), ‘cause it’s gonna be one deadly ride-with an awesome soundtrack!. ;D
I dunno if I’ve posted this before, but if I have, it’s so good, it’s worth posting again. :) It’s short and very sweet, well-written and inspiring like mad. ^_^
Plus, it features a bellydancer (w/what I believe is a milder case of cerebral palsy) who has done AMAZING things w/her own pursuit of this dance. Check her out, ‘cause Neena Nour is a -faboo- dancer! ^_^)
If you’re physically challenged through disability or injury, you may think dancing is beyond your grasp. Belly dance may offer the solution!
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! ♥♥♥

If you wanna alter it, add backgrounds, smooth it out, etc. feel free. My only condition is that you credit, and I WANNA SEE. ;D
Do you guys ever read/watch product reviews..? Generally speaking, do you find them helpful..? And if so, do you prefer to get them via text or video..? (And if not, why not..?)
The idea of potentially reviewing plus-size bellydance-wear just occurred to me, so I wanted to ask y’all about your thoughts on the matter. ^_^ Would you like plus-size dancewear, costume & accessory reviews? And if so, would you like them to feature anything in particular? (Or avoid anything in particular, for that matter..?) Lawd knows many fluffy dancers have a HELL of a time finding decent stuff to work out & perform in, so I thought this might be a cool way of getting the word out, as well as judging manufacturers on how they did- w/elements like fit, sizing, quality, performance, selection, etc. :) (Plus, this could work w/accessories & jewelry as well; since I’ve found not all things work on all body types. Bangles for example, can be tough on bigger sizes, as well as very petite ones. :))
SO, what would YOU like to see in a plus-size dancewear review..? Do tell! ^_^
