why the fuck cant we text the police
lets say there is a murderer in ur house and you’re hiding behind your sofa and you do have your phone with you but you can’t call the police because the murderer might hear you
I wish this was an exaggeration, I really do.
But its not

Yay! I finally finished this!!!! We want to do more with bellydancestuck, and
possibly even make it a full-fledged AU…
So since these got popular, I thought I might do a write up with more about the styles and costumes of the characters:
Keep in mind that all of the patterns represent beadwork, sequins, and coins.
Most of them are inspired by Egyptian bellydance (my style) with the exceptions of Tavros, Nepeta, Gamzee, Eridan, and Feferi. Common fabrics for bellydances costumes are Chiffon, Silk, Cotton and Linnens, and velvet. I invision most of the bellydancestuck costumes with chiffon.
-JOHN: John is a beginner Egyptian bellydancer. One would see his costume typically worn in a student group performence and looks like this
-DAVE: Dave bellydances purely for ironic reasons. His costume is inspired by this costume
-ROSE AND JADE: They dance Egyptian Cabaret, or Rags Sharqi, a modern style of Classical Egyptian. The strap on their bellies is common among modern bellydance costumes, like this one
-ARADIA: Her costume is made up of the most common Egyptian costume components, a coin hip-scarf, a coin bra, and a chiffon layered skirt. Hip scarves are usually used for practice and performances. Her bra, however, has lots of fancy beadwork and would only be used for performances
-TAVROS: I imagine that Tavros likes the idea of bellydancing, but can’t do it at all. He threw together a costume based on pop culture’s idea of Egypt and Bellydance, and got everything wrong. I designed his costume based off of everything my teacher tells me not to do: excessive amounts of jewelry, bells and a bindi (which are indian), cheesy eye makeup, overly skimpy bra, animal print…
-KARKAT: His costume is inspired by this one
-NEPETA: This is where I started bellydancestuck. I did a surr-of-the-moment video in a thrown together costume, and it got way more popular than I ever imagined. I ended up making a costume from scratch for her, and that is what I based the design off of. The style she dances is a combination of Egyptian, and Tribal Fusion.
-KANAYA: She is a purist and dances the most traditional form of Egyptian bellydance, Raks Baladi. This style is what my teacher teaches. While other modern styles of bellydance rely heavily on choreography, tradtional bellydance is mostly improvisation. Her costume is very typical of traditional egyptian, with no belt or scarf and simple, minimal beadwork.
-TEREZI: The grey part on her belly is mesh, and the belt and mesh lining make up her symbol
-VRISKA: Her skirt is inspired by this one
-EQUIUS: his costume is inspired by this one. The only time he ever bellydances is when Nepeta forces him into costume
-GAMZEE: Gamzee dances Tribal Fusion, a very new style of western bellydance. The vocabulary of Tribal Fusion comes from American Tribal Style, but Fusion mixes all sorts of other dance including hip-hop, interprative dance, asian, indian, and Egyptian with it. Gamzee’s bellydance style and costume are inspired by Rachel Brice and Zoe Jakes
-ERIDAN: He does American Tribal Style, a new style of bellydance inspired by the Romani tribes’ dance, Indian, and even Flamenco dance. It has very strict rules for costume and dance, and is all improvisation.
-FEFERI: She dances Turkish bellydance. It is similar to Classical Egyptian, but much more upbeat. This is the costume that inspired me
