Need An Instant Costume? Just Add Assiut!

Need An Instant Costume?  Just Add AssiutI’m please to announce that Andelee, over on the  website has just published my article “Need an Instant Costume?  Just Add Assiut!”  featuring model Nicole Simone shot by photog Alisha Westerfeld.  The article is about styling an assiut robe with a few tips that apply to dancers of any size, from size 2 to 22.

Andelee’s mission is to gather together informative articles, tips, hints and advice for us plus size belly dance.  When Alisha and I were shooting photos for the book The Cloth of Egypt: All About Assiut there were many photos that we would have loved to use, but simply ran out of space.  Why not take some of these wonderful photos and share them with the world and create some great content for a sister website!

Award winning plus-sized model, Nicole Simone who you can follow on Instagram here, or visit on FaceBook here, is one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.  Her satiny skin, clear blue eyes, wicked curves, and mega-watt star power on stage, make her a force to be reckoned with!

And guess what?  If you go and check out this article, you get to see some of Alisha’s photos in COLOR!  Cloth of Egypt was published in black and white because so much of the assiut was black and white to begin with, and b/w printing saves the reader money.  I promise that in the fullness of time, we will release another full-color book.

But in the meantime, enjoy!
Yours in Dance And Costuming,
