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

Recommendations- never read Shanazel's posts before being fully awake (and put down the frothy hot cup of cocoa). Laughed, choked, coughed, laughed more. Loved the jeweled dog harness gown. Super cute. :ROFLMAO:
I thought the slasher costume might appeal to you since it has zombie potential. By the way, I finally saw a zombie movie that didn't feature Charleton Heston or Will Smith. It was called Maggie. Yeah, nope- zombie movies officially gross me out, even when Ahnald plays the dad.

Oh dear, you jumped in the deep end. I'd bet money you'd enjoy "Army of Thieves" on Netflix. Don't watch the follow on "Army of the Dead". I loved Army of the Dead for many reasons- filmed in and around Albuquerque, scenes where the only way they pulled it off were to hire acrobatic pros, and zombies with an evolutionary twist. But ya really have to like zombie movies to watch that one. Let me know what you think of Army of Thieves.

P.s. That Slasher costume is hideous.

"Slasher" has potential - in another color. What's up with the "extreme mermaid skirts"? They look cool, but dancing in a hobble skirt doesn't work too well, and the floor sweeping hem would plant my face on the floor after about three steps - coupled with the hobble profile it'd be one step! I tried a hobble skirt once, it was rather alarming! My preference in dance skirts run towards a BAGS, but something like that mermaid needs slits. All the way to the hip.

"Ummm" looks like a pop-out special, with hideous bra straps.

"Turquoise" ain't bad - I have one vaguely similar.

I think "dog harness" is beautiful. With that said, its both a face plant special as well as a pop-out special. I'll say the same about "lingerie lace", except I don't know about the bra - but its a beautiful face plant special.

If it had a more correct name, such as "fantasy costume" I wouldn't bother.
Could have worn something similar for a LARP costume 20 years ago, but not for dance. The only thing I liked about it was the colors.
