Liberace Exhibit at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas

Today I am sharing with you one of the exhibits I visited while in Las Vegas. We just happened to be walking along the strip passing The Cosmopolitan when I spied this exhibit through the window. We realised it was free to go in and we were allowed to take photos. Being the Bellydancers we are , we could not resist taking a gander at an exhibit showcasing one of the most outrageous and blinged up performers ever: LIBERACE! I love this quote! I couldn't believe the detail that these costumes…

Tribal Takeover of Durban!

Hi Everyone, This week's post is all about what is happening in my bellydance world this November. Some exciting events and happenings and some future blog-posts coming up as a result. Firstly this coming weekend is our dress rehearsal for our studio showcase (more about that in a bit), so this week is practice and costume frenzy time. Our house looks like a fabric and textiles fairy puked up all over it :P hehe. In the evening of the 16th we have been asked to dance in the Belly Diva's…

It's all in the Details Version 2

This week I wanted to share little teaser snippets of some of the costume items I have been working on for our show "Salmagundi" (get tickets here) on the 30th November. Silly season has hit and we are trying to be ready for our dress rehearsal on the 16th. Too much excitement in the Dance Tribe and Left of Centre camps at the moment. So enjoy the details, and when we have our show images I will be sure to blog about it and show off the full costumes. I love creating new costumes... for…

Wedding Inspiration- Magpie Calls Pretties.

Hello lovelies. This week's post was meant to be done last week, but being overwhelmed by sickness meant it was delayed. I am all better now and want to celebrate the engagement of my good friend B by doing a post that is wedding related. Over the last year and a bit I have created some pieces which can be used for weddings. Either by the bride or by bridesmaids or flower girls. The following pics are some of the creations which I feel would work well for weddings (including my handmade and…

Thrifting Fun- Second Treasures

Today's post is a collection of pics I took at the second hand store in Hillcrest called Second Treasures. A regular smorgasbord (don't you just love that word?) of bits and bobs, old and really old, nostalgia, pre-loved, upcycled and interesting stuff. Filled to the brim, you really have to spend time looking at the nooks and cranny's to make sure you don't miss out on some hidden treasure. I love places like this, that make you feel like you are on a treasure hunt, and that every item has…
