Worn at: Anime North 2008, Dragon*Con 2009, various dance events
I had the dreads from my Emerald Gothic/Cyber Lolita and was inspired to make a gothic bellydance costume. Amusingly enough the result ended up looking a bit similar to a well-known gothic dancer named Sashi, but it's completely coincidental.
The top is my handmade coin bra (covered with silk velvet and handsewn coins/embellishments). I made the pants and layered skirts; the sequined hip wrap was purchased.
The panel belt has holographic vinyl Heat n' Bonded to it and is bound with silver vinyl. I made all the tassels using variegated yarn and strung sequins. The jewellery is part of my standard dance wardrobe and was purchased on Ebay.
