Bunches of Beaded Belt Bases! February 23, 2017 14:31
Check out these versatile belt bases that are new to the costuming boutique! They are covered in shiny rows of domed turkoman buttons, old kuchi coins and embossed metal amulets. Add a couple ties to them for a basic tribal style bellydance hip belt. Attach a pair of beaded medallions to the ends for a fancier look or to increase the overall length if need be. If you are crafty, cut them up into pieces to decorate a tribal bellydance bra!
Many times I've used belt bases to make matching tribal style bellydance bra and belt sets. I've found there is usually enough textile to divide into three pieces. Two strips can be used to edge both bra cups and the remainder can be made into a front panel for a two part hip belt which ties on the sides. I have one favorite back panel with some pretty fantastic tassels on it. Then I have a number of front panels to match every one of my bras. Super coordinated!

Today was the first ever Markdowns & Movies event in the studio, where EVERYTHING was 25% off! It was a fun gathering to unveil a bunch of new tribal bellydance costuming supplies, with tasty treats to munch on while watching dance videos! The ladies got some great deals, everyone had a good time so it was a Win - Win all around!
A Pile of Pretty February 06, 2015 13:24
When this irresistible pile of pretty arrived on my doorstep today I could barely contain my excitement! I'll have to get some lovely detailed photos of these things for my online shop. Keep your eyes peeled!
I will freely admit I'm a bit of a textile fanatic. The more colorful, the more elaborate, the more time consuming to make the better. I may even have embroidery thread in my veins. It's no wonder I'm drawn to ATS® dance and it's fantastic costuming possibilities!
I have a feeling though, a little something out of this lot may find it's way into my own dance wardrobe...
