Costume, Turquoise and Silver Lycra--Handmade in Egypt.
Bra & Skirt--The
allure of the animal print must be rooted in our primitive selves,
making us feel one with all of nature. Animal prints never quite go out
of style and reinvent themselves with each new decade: the latest rave
in belly dancing as well as haute couture is animal print in other
colors, here showcased in turquoise. The animal print signifies the
sensual side of women. The top material is sheer netted, drapey and
soft. Filled with ruched design on skirt's top section as well as bra.
Lovely swirl designs on bra and belt decorated with iridescent silver
sequins and glass faceted beads. These same lovely bead droplets compose
the fringe of the bra's mid section, as well as the skirt's sides. The
shoulder straps of the bra are also accented by a triangular added
addition that is separately sewn and creates greater coverage for the
top cleavage and collar section. The armbands are also saturated with
the same faceted glass balls. The skirt is layered and soo FULL of
material it has no slits. The skirt is 42" long and can be worn by the
tall dancer or by the dancer who likes to dance in heels. This costume
took 5 weeks to complete by hand from start to finish. The netted sheer
material is no easy feet to sew onto.
matching tiara, 2 matching armbands.
