|rakamuffin||08:23 am - Oh Gods, it just gets worse!|
so, i actually -looked- at the website boasting the neon-sequined, marbled horrors from earlier, which i really shouldn't have done.
as garish colors go, orange and blue are usually my favorite together, but not this time...
seriously, you can see the girdle that holds you into this...thing. how is that sexy?
wow. just when you think they're being tasteful...
also available in algae!
i've seen bondgirls wear less trash, including the bellydancer in Dr. No! or was it Thunderball? like it matters, you all know what i mean.
pennywise the clown wore orange and silver too. if children start to go missing and the only evidence forensics finds is a handful of sequins, you'll know this dress did it.
you see, i'm torn here. it's an -interesting- costume and as an artist, i like it's somewhat dali-meets-miro-glitter-party feel. i actually paint in a very decorative style like this myself sometimes, but i sincerely doubt i would ever dance in it. perhaps if i had the model's belly....
it boggles sometimes me that i got my bridesmaids' dresses from this site. then again, that was back when the folkloric page wasn't made entirely of spandex.
Current Mood: colors make me weep
i know this site is for giggles but the 2nd one is a meleya luff dress & they are supposed to be tacky.
not that tacky! leffs are meant to be a risque yes, but that's a screaming design flaw. plus, that's not the worst leff on this website; at least it's not made of -hologram- spandex.
I think the girdle you see in that dress is actually the modesty nude-colored shortyshort that's inside so that you don't have to have your ass bared to the world. Though, maybe that's just an option that the model decided to use on her own!
The blue / algae one is actually a famous/popular style now. People who don't look like that don't look quite so porn star, and it's much nicer.
the fact that the outfit is -designed- to bare your ass without the unfortunate boyshort just adds to the mystique.
i still wouldn't be caught dead in the bluegreen algae, and it's costumes like that which help people equate bellydancers with porn stars. popular ideas are not always good ideas, but it's possible i'm just old fashioned.
