Lady of the Words of Power,

Roman writer Apuleius later gives us his understanding of Isis in the second century. The following paragraph is particularly significant:
“ You see me here, Lucius, in answer to your prayer. I am nature, the universal Mother, mistress of all the elements, primordial child of time, sovereign of all things spiritual, queen of the dead, queen of the ocean, queen also of the immortals, the single manifestation of all gods and goddesses that are, my nod governs the shining heights of Heavens, the wholesome sea breezes. Though I am worshipped in many aspects, known by countless names ... some know me as Juno, some as Bellona ... the Egyptians who excel in ancient learning and worship call me by my true name...Queen Isis. ”
One symbol of Isis was the rose.

"Greetings and thank you for your support. I very much appreciate it!
There is so much written about Isis that I thought to go to a source and take some of the quotes there. I very much like the last one in that batch. The thing about Isis is she has not left us, just morphed again into another strong woman archetype, the Virgin Mary. They even share the same brilliant blue robes. This is not in anyway meant as disrespectful to either. A strong archetype will find ways to survive in the human subconcious.

The silks are also named for Little Egypt, the turn of the 20th century dance sensation. She did a very basic belly dance and gave rise to the term hoochie coochie dance. For more information on her please check the web! It is a very interesting story, and these garments were inspired by her.
These silks are part of a batch started in 2008. I've just finally been persueded to release them to the wilds of SL. I hope you enjoy them. Please do play with the looks, just because you can wear them all at once doesn't mean you need to wear every piece! "

Thank you for your purchase of these dancing silks. Your support is greatly appreciated!
The silks have a story, as much as the goddess they are named for has one. Nut is also Nuit, who also has many other names. The goddess has a body that is speckled with stars since she was the night sky for ancient Egyptians. In many depictions of her she is arched over the earth, toes and fingertips touching down. She was a major goddess, and mother of Isis according to the Egyptian pantheons I've seen. She married Geb and had five children. That is a tiny bit of Nuit’s story, now for the silks.

In July of 2008 I had a notion to make silks. So I did, but I didn’t want the strips and slivers of fabric that seemed so very popular. Instead I looked around and saw Little Egypt, the Victorian belly dancer from the turn of the 20th century. She caused quite a stir dancing the first basic belly dance in the United States. She was the hit of the mid-way, and her costume was scandalous for the times. There is a very interesting history behind Little Egypt, and I would urge anyone who wishes to know more to go take a look on the web for reading material.
As for me, this is one set of silks I came up with, each named for a Goddess of Egypt or Rome or Greece as the mood takes me. They all have a few things in common, they were usually strong, beautiful female archetypes, and they were usually just looking for a good male partner.

There are many pieces in this outfit and you should find a way to wear them that is good for you. Some dancers need a very modest outfit, others may want the sexy little skirt and nothing else. I urge you to experiment and play with the outfit. All the pieces can be worn at once, but please do play with the look!
A note on dress, if you’re using this in an RP sim, the dancers of Ancient Egypt usually danced in nothing but a short skirt.

The skirts in this outfit are made so that you can wear both together as you wish. There’s also a beaded chest piece that is made to fit snugly under the breasts. As well as a nice sculpted one that would cover the breasts more modestly.
The resizing scripts are simple, click and adjust. Once you’re finished, just delete the scripts. However, do be aware that you will no longer be able to adjust the silks once you do that. Some will not adjust down any smaller than they already are, but you’ll find that out as you play with them.

I truly hope you enjoy these items and have many hours of fun!
Cordially yours,
