211  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Scorpion King Sorceress' Costume Questions on: October 02, 2004 03:57:20 PM
Looks like a coin belt and bra you can get them from any belly dance supply place I get my stuff on the net. the skirt looks like some sort of sheer crinkle fabric that overlaps a little in the front and comes to a point in the back. if you don't want to get the coin belt and bra you could probably try gold sequins fabric check Joann's it has a lot of halloween stuff now.if you have more questions about the construction I could probably help you I am a belly dancer and I make all my own costumes. Just let me know.

How to tell if it is nylon? well nylon is kind of slippery and has that synthetic feel you could also try a water test to see how the water either sits on top or is absorbed or is wicked thru.
Yes most men can be uncomfortable with menstral blood but remember it is just blood the same stuff that comes out of all their cuts and scrapes and what is more important your body or your relatives being a little uncomfortable.  I have washed my pads in the washer on hot to sterilize or you can dry them on hot in the dryer. However you can't do this with pul it ruins it that is why I use fleece instead. If you are worried about stains or stains showing use dark colored fabrics or when you take the pad off have a soaking bucket and throw it in there also hydrogen peroxide is good at getting organic stains out,however you should test it on a corner first to see what happens. I personally don't mind the stains. you could also try hanging them out in the sun I know that it bleaches the poop stains out of my sons cloth diapers so it might work on the pads.
Good Luck!

Hi !
 I made my own cloth breast pads, menstral pads, and diapers for my son. I used the left over materials from his diapers to make my pads. I didn't use any special waterproof stuff although you can get pul in all kinds of prints and colors. I also used as a filler flannel and old towels. I used my pads after my son was born because I ended up getting an allergic reaction to the disposable pads. they did great and were much more comfy to wear on my sore bottom. I never had any leaks or spill over like I did with the disposables (ironically the same could be said for the cloth diapers vs disposables). If you are worried about leeks if you use fleece that works well I put the fleece on the side next to my skin and that way the moisture was wicked away from my skin and it is soft.   These make great gifts I have given them to some of my crunchy mom friends and they love them!
