Oooh! It’s a Fusion dancer’s cowrie shell hair doodad tutorial! Squee!
Oh! And speaking of myooziks, has anyone taken a listen to either of my new, revived li’l podcast..? If so, lemme know whatcha think! ^_^
It’s all about, by and for bellydance & bellydancers, so I hope the community enjoys it. ^_^ (And next up, I’ll be doing a show about the more unusual types of music dancers groove to, from Southern swang to gothy, and classical to maybe even a li’l dubstep. ;D) ♥♥♥
Introducing the epic, the lovely, the super-stylin’, Angelina Marie. Pre-Raphaelite bellygoddess, much? ^_^
(Please note: I want to steal her clothes. Like.. all of them. *lol* -But then magick them so they’d fit me- or even better, the other way ‘round. ;D)
So epic, and so pretty!
You cannot fight it. You cannot deny it. My former teacher is the cutest amazon ever. ^_^ Woman has got personality and stage presence for miiiiiles! (Plus she’s the only one I’ve seen in the WP videos that’s gone into the audience thus far. :D) SO adorable and magnetic and generally awesome. ^_^ Go Ms. B.! Yip YIP!! ♥♥
Oh yeah- but before I go, would you like a preview of what someone might get, once they win this li’l blog’s latest contest..?
I recently realized that I had next to -no- brown-skinned dancers in my art portfolio (aside from a few photographs, and one drawing, where she appears amidst a troupe- which is, imho SO nowhere near enough). So it seemed -high time- to make one, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get started. :) There’s more to ‘er than what you see here, and she’s not quiiite done yet, but she’s well on her way, and I hope you like. :)
(For those w/screen readers, or others who just want a description; she’s got big, almond eyes, a smiling, oval face, permed hair in front, and natural hair accented w/one long, thick braid in the back. She’s wearing a halter-style coin bra top, and a hair adornment w/dangly bits that extend from behind her ear to a large rose hair clip, nestled in the back. It’s all in black & white, w/the original being on 8.5 x 11” paper, and was done in graphite/mechanical pencil. :) ♥)
The winner of the contest will get the first print of this little lady, and the deadline is whenever I wake up today/tomorrow/Sat. (i.e., June 1st; so get your entries in soon, if you wanna win a free copy). :) All it takes is an Ask/PM w/a pro and a con about this blog, and you’re in. ^_^
Now, see y’all when I wake up, ‘cause I am a SLEEPY girl! *yawns*
Oooooh!! LOVE this image! Love her pose, love her outfit, and that red in the background! So luxe!
*does some Google Image Searching, n’ finds the credits* This is Karin Hein-Parks, btw. ;)

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! ^_^
I’m workin’ on the next bellydance-inspired ep. of Eclectica, and suddenly it dawned on me to get YOUR input, my booful bellydancing community, for whom this show is made, before I do. :) So; has anyone got any suggestions or requests to put in for the next show, before I start recording tomorrow..? :D
I’ve already got a little Oum Kalthoum on the way, as well as some Corvus Corax.. and others. ^_^ Plus I have a good li’l pool of podsafe & permitted musical bits available, and can always make requests of the bands YOU request. ^_^ But in case people have specific bands or songs they want, or should there be a band or two out there who wanna submit their work for the show, I thought I’d inquire. ^_^
So saying: Might anyone want to hear anything specific..? *tightens screws on headphones & listens closely*
Inspired by Mother’s Day. :) I hope you guys like! ^_^
