rocky belly dance outfit

Two weeks ago, I had two special dress up occasions in one weekend. The first was a gig at which my boyfriends band (he plays bass guitar) lanched it’s cd. They’ve got one song with an Arab influence and because of that, a friend (who’s also a band member’s girlfriend) and I decided to make belly dance outfits to show our support. Of course, I know this is by no means a ‘real’ belly dance outfit, although I got the idea of doing a long and super wide tiered skirt from a website about belly dancing. The band plays a mixture of metal and hardrock, so I also wanted to match that. So basically, it’s just the skirt (So much gathering… argh…) and a very simple cropped tank top with the band logo and a bead ornament sewn on.

Material Notes

jersey for the top, cotton viscose mix (I think) for the skirt





Apparition (the band) for providing the occasion and inspiration (check them out at www.apparition.nl if it might be your kind of sound!)

    I did a search for belly dance and found this. I love it!!! There are so many styles of bellydance now that Rock Bellydance doesn’t seem out of place. I personally am more moved to move by metal than most music. I love what you did to the shirt, very good idea.
