Absolutely gorgeous. I wanna belly dance... hey if I ever get into it, maybe you could make me an outfit?  Grin

Hehe...I've got my whole troupe asking me to make things for them...

I think it would be rather difficult to make the bra for someone long distance. I used a purchased bra and covered it, but you have to replace the straps and whatnot and everything has to be just right for the body that it's going on, or else everything just kind of pops out!

lol

Oh!
It's beautiful!
I love the purple and red combo:) It's bold and looks fabulous on you!
Congrats on your first performance!

It's beautiful! You have quite a way with color coordination!

Thanks a bunch!

Nice work!
I like the fact that you fully covered the bra. My pet peeve with first time tribal/ tribaret looks is people who leave the straps as is, either because they assume they'll always wear a vest or something covering the straps. It's just not as sturdy or versatile that way. So way to go! Great job.

Thanks!  My teacher stressed the importance of making a "finished piece," and I'm never one to leave something unfinished. Heck, I cut off the stretchy straps and replaced them with grosgrain ribbon. I don't need my D cups bouncing out in the middle of a performance!

I started belly dancing in March and my first performance was yesterday. I covered a padded bra and felt bedla (belt) with purple panne velvet and hand-sewed beaded trim, coin trim, red velvet ribbon, gold gimp trim, and red cording (w/ acrylic jewels) to the velvet.

I think it turned out wonderfully Smiley

Sarah sent me an uber cute dog tshirt with "dog" in Chinese, a felt plushy skeleton puppy dog, an ipod cozy with a similar x-ray Dolphin, a beaded necklace with two silver dolphins, an awesome embroidered Pisces pillow, a pack of fish stickers, a pack of dog stickers, and a booklet of awesome stickers with sayings about dogs...

*Red & black potholders for my retro kitchen
*An awesome Cherry suncatcher (which is now in the kitchen window)
*Felt plushy ghost & cherries
*A copy of a Zine for a previous swap
*Glittery magnets w/ Evanescence, Cruxshadows & Interview with the Vampire
*Blue & Pink Day of the Dead soap
*A skull Zipper pouch with Skull Earrings inside
*Beaded & Buttoned Cuff (SO FREAKING COOL)
*A gorgeous Lolita style lacy skirt (which I couldn't get a good photo of to save my life) & a star studded tank top
*Cruxshadows themed slip-on shoes that glow in the dark! (I wear them EVERYWHERE)

Here's a shot of all of the loot:


And a few close ups:

















Thanks again, SuperHooker!
