    How fun!!

    I love coin costumes. My current fave is an antique bronze bra and belt paired with brocade harems and a tribl-ish Flying skirt.

    I love flowy chiffon skirts slits on both sides with a 4" fringe bedlah. Pharaonics or Bella style fringe is preferable. Love tons of bling!

    Lots of chiffon skirts and a blinged out bedlah. The classic "tribaret" style is a close second though.

    Hmmm, I'd have to say that my favorite costume style is the elegant sparkly kind. Like a blinged out Sahar.

    But I also love the tribal fusion that incorporates mens-wear type style and '60s - '70s American cabaret.

    Yay! for contests, as far as costumes go? I like the glitzy style ones with a vintage flair whether vintage or modern takes on vintage styles, they always make you feel sexy and classy and
    mysterious all that the same time.

    I absolutely love super glittery costumes with tons of fringe that really emphasize your curves and movement!

    Bra and belt
    but not that much fringe

    And I can never decided between coins and other bling, so I love the sets with BOTH

    My favorite costume style has lots of silk for color and flow. I like things more covered, and love costumes that incorporate unique and vintage textiles.

    Great contest! I was really digging the sleek modern for awhile, but I am back to the AmCab style fringy bedlah and circle skirt right now. Throw in some epaulettes and I am happy!

    I'll never say no to a draw with fun prizes!
    Right now I'm really feeling the sleek modern look with high quality, interesting fabrics, mermaid skirts and lots of crystals.

    I'm torn. But what I do know is that I LOVE coin costumes - I live how they jingle when you move, and I definitely love the vintage mata hari style stuff - lots of pearls, lots of sumptuous looking fabric and costume jewelry.

    Granted, I also adore unique costume models - thinking like Nesrin Topkapi's half robe, and Sohair Zaki's colorful coordinated bodystockins. J'adore!

    Tribaret coins & glitz, Designer cabaret...for me the best part of any costume is the veil. Flowy, shimmering silks, iridescent chiffons, off beat non traditional fabrics...love them all :)

    Yay! I love girly fringe-y Sims. I'm also fascinated by the cut-out bras that Sim, Bella, and Legend are using these days with all the lovely scroll work/filigree.

    Well hello, fellow Bhuzzers!

    In general my favorite costumes are glitzy and super feminine! Style-wise, I love a good two piece costume set with a "mermaid skirt" (read: not a bra-and-belt) and not too much fringe obscuring that beautiful dancer! It's not that I don't like the ever-versatile bra-and-belt bedlahs, but something about a costume set just sets me to drooling!

    Win a prize? Great!

    My preferred costume style is a fitted dress - with lots of sparklies - maybe cutouts- but not too much fringe.

    Love vintage Bellas from the 90's, but find the modern sleek styles so easy to wear (yay, Eman!). And God help me, but I love the first Sahars that came out .... the "unique" ones ..... total costume addict here ...

    Costumes I love them all really.

    Anything with great big AB crystals gets my attention every time, not a huge fan of the turkish fringe monster styles though.

    I think I love asymmetrical the best- short fringe, not super long, and mega rhinestones and sparkles. I like elegance with sass!

    I am tiny but I love vintage fringe monsters that have glitz and bling. I love the weight, feel and smell of the costume and making it authentic with a twist! Sassy and fun!

    Re: Holiday Contest#2 - there will be 2 winners!!!

    I honestly don't have a favorite style - my costume choices depend entirely on the venue and the music. I've worn everything from sequin-and-sparkle bedleh over full skirts to slinky lycra dresses with rhinestones and beading... and then there's the "tribaret"/ethnic/tribal looks, with coins and cowries and assuit... I love it all!

    Ooooh- a Princess Farhana DVD. That's an awesome prize!

    As for costumes, I like modern Egyptian costumes with a lot of bling on the lycra!

    I love a more classic look: bra, belt, and huge circle skirt! In general, though, I'm a fan of simplicity, so I'm not big on cut-outs and other complicated features, whether classic or modern. I like designs that continue to look good year after year, not trendy ones that end up looking dated.
