Sheer Spinning Skirt
Sheer items are a hot in bellydance. Used mostly for night shows and galas, these elegant and often lacy tops, skirts and pants can be a big hit for soloists and troupes alike. Sheer items have been used for years to set the tone for certain productions and scenes in bellydance theatre. If you’re looking for something a little sultry without showing it all, you can bet sheer items are the best.
Our sheer skirt has captivated many of the dancers we’ve met in our travels to shows. The skirt is very long and sweeps your ankles. It spins beautifully and is made from sturdy fabric, so if you accidently step on it the garment won’t shred to pieces. Accompany this with a solid skirt underneath or just a pair of leggings. Dare to go bare if you care but don’t forget acccessories and other things for a complete look. What sheer items do you have in your show wardrobe? Let us know…
Many want to know if accessories are a vital part of a performance. Our answer, they enhance it greatly. We suggest that you delve into the area of accessories and adornments carefully. We don’t suggest just adding on a bunch of bangles to every bedluh or large dangling earrings during a Khaleegy piece. Always ask yourself what region, genre or image you’re are attempting to portray.
We sell large earrings for fashion as many dancers like to have a little touch of culture with their everyday ensembles. Perhaps this is the best place for big earrings that would otherwise get caught in a costume link and cause ear damage. Delicate rhinestone earrings and bracelets are great for bedluhs. That type of costumes exudes glamour and top notch raqs so save your best jewelry ensembles for those. Tribal, ATS and ethnic pieces can go for earthy, deep colours and bold statements like a dynamic steel ring.
If you have any costume questions or want some feedback on your clothing combinations send us a note, we’ll help you pick out the right items and save you money at the same time.
While the bedluh is a popular item, the beladi dress is one a mainstay in Egypt and Lebanon. Every great legend seems to own many of them. They walk out and glide around like raqs angels in these intricate garments. So why are they so hard to come by and where are they made?
Anyone can make a beladi dress but really beautiful, intricate ones are special. We’ve got one or two designs in our collection and we’re making them available to you. These custom made garments are a perfect way to display your talent at a Raqs gala. Our beladi dress had strudy workings on the bust with lots of classic embellishments. It has a center vertical center design to draw the eye down into the hip area for more emphasis on the most important movements. Long fringe decorates the hips so that every shimmy, hip drop and sway is accented. As customary it comes with a long split on the side also accentuated with jewels and crystals.
Pair this halter style with rhinestone jewelry and beautiful wrist cuffs. A matching cane and a pair of zills will have you on your way down memory lane as quite the hot number. If you’re ready to take your performance to the next level in one of these, let us know we’d love to feature you in our next dancer edition.
