Top customer reviews
* No patterns are contained in the book, just general directions for making costume. Basically, this is for people interested in Tribal style belly dance- I am Romanian Roma descent and this book was no help.
* Screwy advice- example: spending serious cash buying jewelry to approximate a dowry for ornamentation? Try exoticindia.com to purchase funky oriental trinkets without breaking the bank..And, making a ritual forapplying "mahindi" skin designs by lighting candles, incense, etc.- really? Com'on now...
* Lastly, the illustrations are ..gruesome, actually. Cover not too bad but the pastel drawing of the dancer's face is downright scary and representative of the general ineptitude and foreshortening errors of the illustrations.
