I'm thinking something in the lines of the second costume, but I want it to be a bit more of... well, everything! ;)

Full floral belt with flowers dripping all the way to the hem on one side and flowers circling the neck as if the straps were a lei?

I like the lei idea...
Farasha, I am currently on my way to the show, but I will check out the link for you tomorrow morning!

I already have a design for a skirt... now I just have to go fabric shopping... and do you have any idea how dangerous that is in India ;):lol:
You probably need to bring someone to help you say "No!" and then help you carry all the loads of stuff back home... :lol:

Don't have anything to contribute right now, but I'm watching this thread with interest. I have some really cool lace pants and in giving me suggestions for how to wear them, their maker said, "They look really nice with flowers." But I haven't thought through a design idea yet -- some kind of flower belt, I suppose.

I never thought I'd say this about a belly dance costume but... the yellow and peach costume is a little too busy for me. Okay, it's a lot too busy for me. Bright color AND ruffles AND flowers AND beading AND cutouts... a little bit of editing would improve the costume immensely.

Shanazel, I would love to see this costume in just one colour + variations of gold or silver. I think then it would make sense...

A monochromatic color scheme with ruffles, plain hips, and modest decoration on the bra would be plenty for me though I could tolerate the orange and yellow on the right dancer. As is, this would be very much a case of the dress wearing the dancer instead f the other way around.
