Shimmy ID by sweetgreychaos Shimmy ID by sweetgreychaos
Oookaaaay, I adore my last lucky shot DA ID... but I've had it for two or three years already, so I better switch it up at some point! Also, I like for my ID's to show something about me the person, versus just another shot of makeup art.

I am a belly dancer! I've been doing it for almost 2 years now, and I adore it. I was told growing up that I wouldn't be a ballerina (not that I ever really aspired to it, beyond very amateur classes at the Y) because I "didn't have the body for it". Well, no such issue with belly dancing- I'm built for that! ^_~ :heart:

And yes, finally a full length shot. I apologize for the sheeeeety lighting/picture... my camera is not good for much beyond closeups, and this was taken in my living room in the late evening, I believe.

:heart: :blowkiss:

I always say that the belly dancers are my favorite part of the faire when I work/attend Renaissance faires. ;) I *love* Belly dancers and this is beautiful.

I've always wanted to try belly dancing, but I'm not sure if they offer any classes where I live... and I'm a little self-conscious, since I'm kinda 'skinny' instead of 'thin', if you know what I'm saying...

I love this shot; I like how the lettering [for your username] looks like it belongs, like it's part of the scarf... actually, if it is, I apologize for being stupid. ^^;

I HIGHLY recommend trying it out. (I found my class by doing an online search.)
Belly dancing is all about celebrating femininity and the female form- ALL the female forms! And I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'skinny instead of thin'... but regardless of your size, you can still be a wonderful and gorgeous belly dancer. It's all about taking that first step to love yourself. I've been dancing for a few years now... and y'know, you'd never think to look at some of these gorgeous ladies that they're so self conscious about their bodies until they say something about them. And THAT is the first time you ever look at them with a critical eye- is when they bring it up. You never would have done it before. I think women bring the critical eye to themselves by the comments they make, and the fears they have.

And thank you! (The lettering is definitely added in post-picture. :D)

Oooh, there are some great gothic/tribal groups. I dance cabaret style, but I like the costuming of the tribal quite a lot. :heart:

This is awesome <3 I love the lighting, despite the "sheety-ness" you speak of. Beautiful shot. :3

I'm an aspiring belly dancer. I learn what I can from youtube videos and so on. I don't currently have the money for an actual class, nor do I know where to find one.

D'aaw, thank you!

Yay, so glad you're belly dancing! Isn't it a lot of fun? I do attend classes, but I had to look online to find a good studio, and I travel a bit every week to get to there. I have a few good dance videos that are helpful- I like the Brice tapes. :heart:

It is! And quite exercise. I've only gotten the general hip movements down, at least I think I do. When I have the time to practice, I'll do it for the full length of a song, "Wretches and Kings" by Linkin Park, being my favorite. I shall definitely start looking for those, thank you~! <3
