I like the way it's filmed with the mirror like that, how was that done? A simple background makes such a difference :). Btw are those costumes Bella's? They are beautiful!


New member
Hi there, thank you! The mirror was assembled especially for the shoot, so it's real :D but they used some trickery with the light and background editing on the right side to hide the wooden 'foot' that is holding it up from the back. So a half-magic mirror so to speak ;)

The wings costume on the cover is from Eman, the one from the performance with wings is from Asi of Israel. The shimmies costume on the cover is a Bella from 2007 and the costume from the duet with Issam is from Oranit of Israel (I went a bit shopping crazy at Orits festival in Eilat this year :lol:)


The magic mirror trick and all the white around it makes it much easier to watch your movements because you stand out more against the background. It makes such a difference.
That Eilat Festival must have been great, I have seen some youtube clips and they got very good dancers.
Is Oranit a new costume designer? I have never heard of her before, love the costumes! Didn't know Asi made costumes as well. How beautiful is this one:

I love the color!


New member
Oranit has been around for a while, but she does not advertise much outside of Israel. She is very easy to work with though, a friend of mine placed an order with her via Facebook and got the costume 3 weeks later!

She's on FB as Oranit Kagan

And yes, I totally love Asi's designs, and the Eilat festival is fabulous!!

Thanks for sharing the review Safran. Sounds like a good dvd. I have danced a lot woth wings and even performed and competed but seriously, I don't think I'm that good with them. This goes on my birthday wish list.
