UBDC Showdown Part 3

This week’s challenge is between Liable Tribal (found by the Kikster) and the Patriotic Zebra (named by Sasha). Place your vote for which costume “wins” by writing a comment on the picture. Whatever costume gets the most votes will be declared the winner and will go on to the next round next Sunday.

Kikster's Liable Tribal is back again! Is Amulya's Mock Peacock* up for the challenge?

It was a close race last week, but Amulya's Mock Peacock triumphed! This week, the Mock Peacock will take on Christiana's Goofy Gaia! Will suggestive decoration made in sequins win? Or, will tree trimmings triumph?

*just for the record: I never called it Mock Peacock... It's more Mock Peacock minus the Pea... LOL

In the Clouds

Not sure what the designer smoked when he/she designed this, but he/she was sure high in the clouds on something:

Or is that thing on the belt a bow?

Remember These?

Years ago this one turned up on EBay:

It doesn't need any explaining I guess, but the next one is even worse, no seriously, this too was sold as belly dance costume:

From the Vault

Remember this one? This costume still stays a mystery to me. Does anyone know the story behind this one?

How is one supposed to wear this thing that was called a 'skirt', it's so teeny tiny. Maybe it's a kids skirt, but it's see through!

Weird Fabric

The fabric is so thin, the original bra shines trough! The flower sequins are cute but that's where it ends. I think they could have done a better job with the beaded fringe. It doesn't look bad, but it needs to be placed differently.

This construction is strange: space for a 3rd boob, the fabric sewn on quite badly and what is that pentagram on the maniquins crotch?

black feather costume head dress - circus belly dance

I wonder what circus belly dance looks like! I'd like a clip for my video clip blog! Or maybe rather not...

Sad Little Number

It's even missing some fringe at the belt! I think those flaps at the belt are arm pieces, but that's as far a I go to defend this thing

Flower Power

Just when you thought nipple flowers were out.... no they're not, they're ever so popular with the costume designers...

Design by Klaire

This gem was designed by Klaire:

I fused Tribal with ugly for this costume. (Unfortunately, I wasn't that creative in my design. I was inspired by other dancers I've seen in real life and online. I just put them all together for maximum ugly)

I'm afraid I have seen things like this FOR REAL!

This is being sold as a belly dance accessory. All you need to do to make a belly dance accessory is take a random object , and sew some coins on it and we'll just gobble it right up......Right

Thanks anne for finding this object!

What on Earth???

This thing is too weird: what are those crowns on the scarf? And those wilted flowers on the bra?

Sold as Stunning Costume

This thing is a bit wonky, but maybe it can be used by a student if it gets changed around a bit.

UBDC Showdown Part 2

Klaire from tribe.net put up some costumes for aUBDC contest and these are the results:

Amulya's find of Picasso at the Casino is up for the recording setting 4th round! (Even the mighty Crotch Pharaoh only made it 3 rounds!) This week, Picasso at the Casino will take on Omar and his Guitar (found by Huzzah). Will the chicken foot sequence appliqué triumph over the nagahide bikini, huge turban, and handlebar mustache? Only you will decide!

Round 8 is between Omar and His Guitar, last week's champion, and the Dominatrix Genie, the challenger. Omar was originally shared by Huzzab and the Genie was found by Najla. No one’s quite sure where Omar’s guitar is, but there are rumors that he keeps it in his turban. Regardless, Omar and his Guitar are a tag-team duo with lacy curtains and naugahyde in their arsenal. Will the Dominatrix Genie, who brings a whole new meaning to the concept of “master,” be a worthy challenger?

*note: of course that's a male model and not Omar Khorshid (you can listen to his music on http://www.radiobastet.com/ it's actually really nice music!)

Last week in the UBDC Showdown, Dominatrix Genie tied up her opponent, Omar, but can she clinch the title again? Psychedelic Rainbow Safari is ready to take her opponent on a dizzying trip to the African Bush! After ingesting some mushrooms she found growing on rhino poop, PRS developed cheetah-like speed and the ability to yodel in Technicolor! Can she defeat the Pink Master and make her call Uncle Ralph?

The Dominatrix Genie has dominated the competition and is still the master of the UBDC. Will the Heart Breaker be able to break the Genie’s spell?

Though cheap and tacky, the Heart Breaker is this week’s champion. The challenger is Handy Mandy! (The Heart Breaker was shared by Amulya and Handy Mandy was found by Frances

Amulya’s Crazy Crassel crept by last week and clobbered the competition. This week, the Champion will take on Kikster’s Liable Tribal! Bad tassels against bad tassels! Who will be triumphant?

In the yellow corner, Frances’ Handy Mandy is ready for the showdown. Handy Mandy isn’t unarmed – her secret weapons include plastic straps and beads that look like spores. The challenger this week, in the red corner, is Amulya’s Crazy Crassel! The Crazy Crassel plans to confuse the competition with her colorful crotch cling-on.

"Hey ladies, relax, .....let it all hang out. Okay, so I know it's really lingerie, or a halloween costume or whatever, but isn't it supposed to fit regardless?" anne

UBDC Showdown Part 1

Klaire from tribe.net put up some costumes for aUBDC contest. The contest is an on going thing, here are past results:

Which costume is uglier? The "winner" will advance to compete against uglier costumes!

Watch this week as the Champion, the Crotch-Pharaoh, takes on the Gassy Goddess! Who will be victorious?

Will the current reigning champion, the Crotch-Pharaoh, take the throne again? Will this week's challenger, the Amazing Amoeba, evolve to become the winner? (Thanks, Anne, for sharing the Amoeba costume first.)

Last week, the Amazing Amoeba usurped the Crotch-Pharaoh's winning streak to become the champion. Decide this week if Picasso at the Casino will crush the Amazing Amoeba!

Last week, Picasso at the Casino "messed up" the Amazing Amoeba and won Showdown 4. Who will win this week? Will Picasso at the Casino (found by Amulya) win again? Will Rainbow Fright (found by Sandra) prove to be a worthy challenger? Only you can decide!

Armed with nothing but a chicken foot, deck of cards, and beanie, Picasso at the Casino will try to defend the championship yet again. Wait! Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird. No, it’s a plane. No, it’s Captain Belly Dance, ready to fight for truth, justice, and all that is sparkly in the Ugly Belly Dance Costume Showdown!

Op Art

"I really like Op Art, can you find some fabric like that for my costume? Cool! Oh, and I have these tiny doilies, so I was thinking that you could put them under the jewels or something like that. Also, I can't tell the difference between cool and warm colors, so please don't take advantage of me by mixing all sorts of reds together on the costume... not that I could tell anyway. Oh! One more thing, can you put in a big elastic waist band in case my weight fluctuates." Klaire

Lucky we don't see many mistakes in male belly dance costumes (seems the men in belly dance have better taste) but this one isn't so flattering:
