I have some VERY EXCITING NEWS! My bellydance costume worn at The Cairo Caravan Bellydance Show is for sale!!! As you know, my costumes are one-of-a-kind, made couture by a professional designer. Made when the moon was right and worn on very special occasions - my costumes are not only unique and beautiful, sensual and soft to wear, but are filled with magical memories.
This is an antique “Aphrodite under the Full Moon” costume. It's not easy to let go, but it's time to pass it along...hopefully to the home of someone in the GoddessLife Community. We did our best to photograph and describe it, but please feel free to ask us any questions.
For those of you who are familiar with The Goddess Workout DVD and Dolphina's costumes, I am sure you are familiar with how unique, one of a kind and amazing her bellydance costumes are. All of Dolphina’s costumes are designed by her and couture made (sewn by the best in Los Angeles). Unlike most costumes that pinch delicate parts of the female body and scratch and snag - all of Dolphina’s costumes are soft to the touch and more importantly, soft to wear – you will never want to take them off!
All have special features and special This costume was worn (and professionally photographed) for a big Bellydance event called Cairo Caravan in which Dolphina created a special multi-media show with a drum solo and Goddess video playing – Blume Bauer (who was the event producer) said the entire audience was weeping with joy and beauty of the magic and truth… this costume oozes with powerful Goddess energy!
The details, beading and colors of this costume are incomparable. Though it is covered in crystal and beads, it is NOT like any other costume you have seen/felt/worn made in Egypt or Turkey. It is soft, comfortable to wear, sways and shimmers, doesn’t pinch anywhere and unlike most store-bought bellydance costumes…you will never want to take this one off!
I’ve done my best to photograph it in all its glory and describe it in intricate detail, but please ask me if you have any questions.
This costume has an ancient Aphrodite & Moon Goddess silvery color. The bra and belt have a base fabric of silvery satin. The bra and belt are then covered with antique pearls, soft netting on bra, belt and shoulders. There are many gemstones, such as moonstones and pearls sewn into this costume.
The bra was made for a 36C with a fabulous and unique style that offers surprising support and the straps and hooks are adjustable to fit smaller or larger bust size. Please note that there is AMPLE padding in the bra that can be removed to fit a larger size or adjusted for a smaller size.
The belt is 36”.
The skirt is a perfect combo of 1930’s Hollywood glamour that twirls mesmerizingly and has slits to make it easy for dancer’s to perform freely. From hip to ankle at it’s longest is 38”.
This costume cost $1500 to sew and was made with over $500 in crystals, fabric and beading. It is one of a kind!
Please let us know if you have any questions.
