Here is my latest costume, shown at Carnival of Stars last Saturday (08/04/12):
The vest and belt set were purchased 95% completed from another male dancer - Hassan Yousef Deeb. The skirt was about 75% done, given to me by another dancer. I added the flounce at the bottom, and a casing at the top. The "floating sleeves" were made by yours truly.
It was just SO COOL that, despite coming from disparate sources, the vest/belt and skirt went together so well!
