Hi all..My niece has decided that she wants to be the sorceress from the scorpion king for halloween.

Here's a link to what this costume should look like (If you get an error message, copy and paste the url into an existing window and it'll open fine...for some reason they don't like direct links grr):

So far I have gotten her a headpiece and the 'slave' bracelets. (See pictures here:

Headpiece: http://images.andale.com/f2/112/115/11597971/1090353147270_HD00001d2.jpg )

Now I'm trying to figure out how to make the top and the skirt.

Anyone know of any patterns, material types, etc that I could work with? I've only been sewing for a very short time and mostly only Jordy Bags (LOL) so I'm not sure where to start with this one!

TYIA!

as for fabrics, you should be able to find a really sparkly metallic gold one in the prom section, and you should be able to find a halter top pattern to make it look right.  i can only sort of see the skirt, so i'm not sure....

I found a gold lame fabric and i am thinking of making a sort of 'chainmail' out of pop tops from soda cans (sprayed gold) as an overlay for it to make the top look more like the one in the picture.

what does everyone think of that idea?

I also found another picture of the outfit, this one shows the skirt better. http://action-flix-chix.50megs.com/kelly-hu5.jpg

We're going to 'turn' it so that the split is on the sides instead of the front..but I'm wondering how to get the skirt to have all those wrinklie pleats in it?

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.

Oh yeah to make the fabric krinkly you could try wraping it around a broom stick ie broom stick skirt.

you could even add a little bit of fabric starch to make it keep the crinkle.
