Dilbar – Second Life Dance Cover

Dilbar

I have been so busy with school the past couple of weeks I was having Second Life withdrawals. I needed to login and do some major stress relief, and my favorite way to relieve stress in Second Life is to dress up my avatar and dance.

These days the latest craze in Bollywood is the song Dilbar from the movie Satyameva Jayate. Everyone has been creating their own dance covers for it and some of my favorite dance covers are from: Poonam & PriyankaManpreet Toor and of course the ever impressive Mr. KiranJ.

I felt the need to add a Second Life dance cover to this list, so here is my Dilbar Second Life Dance Cover:

The dances I used in the video are all from Abranimations, called Sensual Belly Dance.

The mesh head I’m wearing in this video is the Genus Project Bento Mesh Head. I hear it us back up for sale again so check out my post about it and head on over to try the DEMO.

Check out the original Dilbar song, Nora Fatehi is gorgeous and she just killed it!

Dilbar translates into ‘my beloved’ and if you’re wanting to read the full English translation of the song, check out Bollynook.

I have also done a video for the Vista Gerard male head and I’m in the process of editing it. Hopefully that will be up in a day or so and I have a lot more catching up to do so stay tuned!
