Costume Closet Revamp

Since I have lost more than just my pregnancy weight and I just plain felt like shopping I have completly revamped my costume wardrobe. I sold some things to buy others then I resold and purchased others again....it's been a real process to finally arrive and something that I'm pretty pleased with. Of course that means that now I have a ton of projects ahead of me to make the costumes I ended up with fit since I purchased them all used. That's just what I needed, more sewing!!!

So starting with what I already had that I kept....

My teal and gold set that I purchased at Kismet:

And I made a new skirt and arm gauntlets to go with it:

You can't really see it in the picture, but the teal is this really cool pleated chiffon that I found in the bargain fabrics at JoAnn's. It looks super cool in a spin.

My Butterfly costume....which was a gift from Robert actually:


Then, of course, there's my very first real costume:

Which doesn't fit me so great anymore. I'm debating on whether or not I should attempt to make it smaller or just sell it. I hate the idea of selling in though; it's such a gorgeous costume!!!


Then there are the odds and ends that I either made or got from LRose:

Here's the LRose stuff....






And here's the really pretty purple skirt that I made to go with the gold bra and belt set that I gave to Bonnie:


Adn this is the costume that I got from Bonnie in trade.....of course the bra and belt set wasn't the only thing traded, I'm also her sewing bitch for the rest of my life!!



This is the set I purchased earlier and gave to Bonnie:



And these little chiffon thingies I made to go over my teal set and my old red set that I have long since sold:


I made these skirts:




to go with this set which I just sold:


for my very own GREAT LOOP!!!!

I am so freaking excited about this one :)


And then here's the set that I bought to replace the red set I got rid of a long time ago:


and here it is in action.....


The last three I purchased fomr Yvonne, who is sadly emptying out her belly dance closet:

two bra and belt sets....



and this gorgeous turquoise dress.....



That's it!!! So now all I have to do is sew hooks on the gold, copper and great loop sets and sew in a chiffon insert on the turquoise dress so I'm not showing the world my crotch as I'm dancing. I wish I could have a personal taylor for all this stuff. Hopefully I'll get around to all of this soon.....but I'm so excited about all the new (new to me anyway) shiny stuff in my closet!!!

Ah, the Great Loop. I want a teal one and a red one. And then I will sit with them and pet them and coo.
