I just got my hands on a copy of the book "Belly Dance Basics", and I'm impressed. Not only is it a really well done book, but it's given me a really nice bit of inspiration. Especially the section on dancing with wings. The wings in question appear to be huge pleated pieces of semicircular lame fabric, attached to either the back or upper arms of the user.
I want a set of these things? Does anyone know where I could get them?
Those wings are fabulous aren't they? They're for sale at www.wingsofayshe.com/wings_shop.html. There is another place too but I can't remember the address - I'll have a look round in a while to see if I can find the link.
It must be reasonably easy to make them - I'll have a think...
