(Not At All) Jaded

Tabblo: Putting Together My Costume

I am going to be bellydancing  in a performance for the first time in May, with my class, at a recital.  We will be using zills (finger cymbals), veils, all in a group routine.  If I feel ready, I can also do a solo performance.  All day today my head was full of fantasies about this show, and what I would do and wear.  I came up with this jade green ensemble built around my Egyptian hip scarf.  The color is rich and gorgeous.  It makes me feel like a star!

See my Tabblo>


Wow. That is a very beautiful green!! I think your costume looks fab. I wish I can sew…instead I put together a costume from pieces I found on ebay. You must be so excited to perform in your new costume!

And yes, I got my new hip scarf but I think it’s more suited to egyptian folk dancing since it’s long. Hm..

I have found some great stuff on ebay. Lately I also like Isis Exchange, which has some great beaded tops, nice quality, with belts, for $99. This is quite a habit!

I hope you post pics of how you will wear your new hip scarf.
