Belly Dance Costuming Ideas

If you are a belly dancing performer then having the right costume should be at the forefront of your mind. You will want all the attention on yourself and you will want to look elegant, graceful and beautiful. Choosing the right costume can be simple if you know where to look. You should also make sure that your costume matches the style of music and style of dance that you are performing.

Know where to look: Your local town store might have some options for hip scarves and accessories but if you are looking for a complete belly dance costume then you might want to check out your local flea market. You could also find some full costumes that are slightly used or brand new on local classified websites like UsedEveryehere and Craigslist for some potential options.

If you are still stuck trying to find a complete belly dance costume then you will want to try shopping online at some belly dancing apparel websites. There are hundreds of options and some that you have never seen before. You could find great deals on hip scarves, skirts, harem pants, jewelry and belly dance bras.

Style of music: If you are dancing to something quick and you are doing lots of hip movements than a short hip coin belt over some harem pants or a skirt would work well. If you are dancing to a slower song with lots of belly rolls then perhaps a flowy skirt with fringe or a larger hip scarf with less coins and a veil as an accessory. Your costume should compliment the song you are dancing to.

Style of dance: You have probably already chosen your style of music so now that you've figured out what you like to dance to you will need to stick to that style for your costumes. If you are a tribal dancer then your costume should also fit in that category. Egyptian or Turkish dancers have their own costume styles and rules.

If you are on a budget you can also browse your closet and come up with your own belly dance costuming ideas. The options are endless. There are no strict rules when it comes to costuming. Respect the culture but remember to throw your personality into the song you are dancing to and what you decide to wear. Know where to look, remember your style of dance and pay attention to what the song tells you to wear.
