Easiest bellydance costume ever not to mention it didn't cost much.  We all had the black split pants already.

The belt: The burgundy knit material came from a second hand store $1 cut into four equal pieces I then cut one inch strips leaving about a 6 inch section at either end.  We also got a belt from a second hand store that had 4 silver medallions we disassembled the belt, and attached the medallions onto the belt.

The top:  We used black bikini tops (bought).  Over that we had crushed burgundy crushed velvet like the belt cut strips into the center of it, and left the fabric long so that we could tie it around the tops, and the back would just hang.  The crushed velvet when cut into strips rolled nicely so it was like thick cords.

Hair Falls:  Lots of interesting yarn gathered & tied.  What looks like shark teeth is actually pieces of shell with holes on one end I then thread them  it through elastic cord with a gold spacer bead between each.  When we did our hair messy bun with the hair fall tucked in, and draped over the bun, then added the shells around the bun.

It was such a simple costume & so effective.  We performed at a festival, and had so many other bellydancers asking where we got our belts from...Cheesy
