Description:
These are professional line costumes!

1. Margo's Ivy Costume:
A vibrant kelly green and gold with a BELLA Label. This costume is gorgeous. The mother goddess would proudly dance in. It is heavily beaded with multiple layers which is a Bella trade mark. It has a slip lining and the bra is made over vest of stretch velour. This is often a kinder look to women's figures than the strapier styles. Beaded vining ivy motifs lift from bra to neck choker and from the waist band up on to belly. Another vine climbs down the right arm for and asymmetrical look that is nicely balanced with a left hand wrist cuff.

PARTS:
A heavily multi level beaded skirt
A beaded bra / vest combination
Head piece
1 beaded wrist cuff
Green Veil
Extra gift: a Video of Margo dances in this costume

Cost : $950.

Size 34-38 B, C cups if you take out pads.

More on the costumes:

Last night Ruby came over and tried the Ivy Green & Gold costume on. It’s a little long on her but oh Boy, what an amazing creation. Really can’t see it until some one puts it completely on and starts dancing in it. The different layers and lengths of beads make it heavenly to move in. It weighs quite a bit. Ruby said in her experience it’s not your average BELLA design. It has got even more beaded detailing.

2. Oh My Goddess!

Silver and aurora borealis iridescent crystal beaded and bejeweled.
So much bling my eyeballs hurt! Wouldn't it be Crazy if I sell it before I get a photo up! She wore it only once at the concert in Washington DC. She does not have a photo of her in it. Take my word for it's really got beautiful detailing! Plus a little shoulder cape It's made for a tall dancer. I am 5'5'' and I would have to hem it. This can be done easily. It is so beautiful I'm tempted to buy it myself.. loll. While it sure looks like a Bella or a Sim design but alas there is no label.

Parts:
Amazing bejeweled and beaded bra (to die for)
Beaded and bejeweled skirt base fabric is a silver stretch,
A unique shoulder drape with jewels and beads,
2 head piece variations,
2 anklets,
A veil.

Size B-C cups 34-38
Length of skirt from Hip to Hem is at least 38-39 inches (can be shortened 3 inches easily)
PRICE: $900 and Worth every penny!

2 Costumes from Actress Claudette Roche

About Claudette Roche

Claudette is a busy TV actress, a model, and an in demand accent and public speaking coach. You may have seen her on The Game, Without a Trace, Cold Case, The Practice, NYPD Blue and many other dramas. She has really enjoyed belly dancing for fun, fitness and sisterhood for a number of years and danced for a number of professional engagements. These are two of her favorite costumes she wants to pass on.

Description:


Blue Turkish Splendor:

A beautiful turquoise Turkish style cabaret costume. As you can see the photos register differently depending on your computer. The sequins are iridescent and so it changes. I'd say it's a turquoise rather than a blue.
Comes with a multiple choice skirt combination.
The sequins are iridescent turquoise allowing the bra and belt to go with many shades of blues. The bra and belt have lots of iridescent jewels that don't get shown with justice on the computer screen. It has much more bling in person than is shown. The straps have a nice shaped design with extra beading. The belt is wired for extra strength and a nice fit! The bra has been comfortably re-worked so the bra fits a 32 but can be fit-34 B maybe C cup. There are extra beads for design adjustments. ( I personally love wired edges of Turkish style costumes).

PARTS:

Bra
2 gauntlets
2 anklets
Heavy long beaded belt
Silk veil and a chiffon veil

Three Skirts
A. Delightful blue duo toned harem pant with paneled over skirt.
B. A full circle satin skirt with silver over print details (that match a silk veil perfectly).
C. A knit skit straight skirt with ruffle edge with beading and side split.
A set of Finger Cymbals

Cost $450 for everything!

A Yummy Orange Sherbet Costume:


Accents of silver and gold beads. Plastic and glass with lots of different color sequins.
Large emerald cut diamond colored jewels give it lots of bling. Made by Pharonics of Egypt.

Belt can fit a much larger person than Claudette. As has been fashionable lately, it is designed to be worn up high on the hips to even cover the navel if desired. Or high in the back and dip down beneath navel in front. It has a lot of versatility of how it should be worn based on your figure type.

PARTS

2 Arm sleeves
A head band

Story


This is a new costume bought in Egypt last April 08. 
It was worn at the memorable benefit show the Feldthouse Family Circus had for Sulyman after he lost everything but his dear life, last June in the Summit Fire in the Santa Cruz mountains. He barely got out with what was by the door, his lap top and a guitar. Sol is a member of the famous musical duo Sirocco that is featured on many of my performance and instructional DVD's and documentaries.

Delilah & Sirocco:Live & Wild, Absolute Beginning with Delilah, A Retro Choreography with Fire at the Iao. and more. . . see STORE

In July an all star cast of singers dancers and musicians came together for a 4 hour show, including Sol's daughter film actress Fairuza Balk doing a fabulous Gypsy dance. Show had a lotta love! Lots of money raised to give Sol a fresh start. Including even an RV to live in back on the mountain property
He said " The stuff you owns owns you." He is practicing the art of letting go.
Still hurts.

Cost: 595 plus shipping

Black Velvet and Silver 

ruby
ruby
sold


Silver and black beads with crystal jewels. The design features sexy cutouts and open side lacing. Very slenderizing because the fringe is varied in tone in the vertical direction. The black sculpts the body and the silver keeps it rich and vibrant.
This is a brand new costume that the award winning Ruby from Bellingham bought in Istanbul.  When she got home she wore it the first time and found that it was too small in the bust...she almost fell out!  So, that was the last time she wore it.  It is a beautiful costume, similar to Bella style but sewn by a lesser known woman in the Taksim district.

 The bra is a 36 C/D but could possibly fit a 34DD and definitely could be fitted for a smaller cup too. Cups measure about 8 inches wide and 7 inches tall. Back strap is 36 inches long end to end.  The belt measures 35.5 inches around and is attached to the skirt. The skirt is about 37in long.  

The entire costume includes:

  • a Bra
  • Belt/Skirt
  • one ankle cuff
  • head band
  • arm gauntlets
  • and a beaded circular veil.

Cost $600 plus shipping

Teal Green, Silver, Black and Iridescent Jewels.

This is truly an amazing costume. So sorry we do not have a close up detailed video yet. Delilah just decided to let this one go. It has an asymmetrical design with lots of different lengths, layers and drapes of beaded fringes. A zipper in the back . One thigh has open bead and jeweled lattice work the other has fish net inserts. Shoulder strap designs are very cool. Fit is amazing and it’s very well made.

Delilah wore this in Las Vegas at the IBDC show with the House of Tarab ensemble.

Delilah brought this beauty home from her last trip to Egypt. Then she wore this costume in the Fremont Solstice Parade 2008 while leading her Billion Bellies that year in support of Code Pink Women for Peace. Her dancers needed to be able to see her clearly in the parade for cues, so the turquoise skirt made it easy. The beautiful gold bead work moves down onto a flowing skirt.

belly dancing costume

Simple and Elegant. This costume is a Vicky Horiuchi original. An American designer famous for color and bead designs as well as her ability to make the most comfortable and breathable beaded bras of all time. She employs a labor-intensive technique of stretching the fabric as she beads retaining the elastic quality. Worn by Delilah on the Delilah &Sirocco Live and Wild video. This is one of Delilah's favorites. It’s been well used (seen a lot of nightclubs) and re beaded once. Still a gem! (skirt not included) Delilah will autograph the lining and include the video.
Price: $1,000.00 plus shipping
• Bra size 34 B
• Belt size medium, somewhat adjustable.
• Headband
• 1 arm band

Costume Herstory

Delilah wore this costume as featured dancer in the IAMED Second Annual Academy Awards of Bellydance concert and video release as well as for a Solo performance to Leylit Hob in the Absolute Beginning Bellydance Instructional DVD. It has been worn less than a dozen times.

This costume has been professionally redesigned from the original for more practical dance execution. The sleeves were re-beaded and shortened so they do not tangle across chest as in the original design, making it a one-of-a-kind costume. Bra also was slightly elasticized for more comfort.
