So i do some firedancing and wanted to make a nice costume to perform in. 
I was inspired by the tribal fusion bellydance look.  I pretty much made or altered the entire outfit.  I altered some plain black pants to make them tight at the thighs and to flair out from the knees. Made a simple bronze shimmery skirt of a panel front and back. The belt started from a base from a thrift shop, i made, then added the feathered gold discs and some coins.  Made some cowrie falls to hang from my belt and from my hair.  Cut up a shirt to make sparkly gloves.  The bra was a black bikini top which i covered in brown fabric and added a metallic belt under the bust, added some gold studs on the top and some chain and coin dangles. Lastly i made a thin head band of more gold studs, added some fake red roses and red pheasant feathers and then the costume was finished : )
I also make fire toys, i made this fire umbrella from a chinese parasol.

Wow that is amazing! I love the dangles and the feather disc on your belt, but I think my favorite would have to be your fire toy Smiley

Okay you are officially the coolest person I have seen on here.  Fire Dancing!? Are you kidding me!?  That is so freakin' awesome!!!  And the costume is AMAZING.  It reminds me of something I saw on Chris Angel's show or another similar show where there was this troupe of circus/gypsy types and they all had awesome costumes like what you have and they performed at night because of all the fire.  Sweet!

I love the fire parasol!  How unique!  Did you follow a pattern or did you come up with it yourself?  If you came up with it yourself, will you post how to make it?
