That is crazy.  All anachronism aside, the very foundations of belly dance in western culture came from Victorian Orientalism, and the term belly dance was coined at the Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, where they were featured at the Cairo exhibit.  Apparently, someone is confused.  That makes no sense.  It makes me sad to hear about it.

I greatly regret i received an Email this morning that the AMA-CON people do not feel that Steampunk Bellydancers are not realvant to AMA-CON and are not going to be allowed to perform. This comes as a bit of a shock after they Requested we retrun after our performance last year. of course the Airship still has it's booth for the con. However as ALL of the dancers are Ironsharks and we work very hard on our shows we are all going to be a bit crushed by this. I am thus suggesting the creatation of a 2cd Steampunk convention in Amarillo set up and Run by the Steampunk community and funded by kickstarter and run by steampunks for steampunks.-- Navigator Faolonhawk

Are you looking for that one of a kind bra and belt or just pieces? Check out my Handmade one of a kind Jewelry and Dance bras and belts. Not online in store yet check back often or message me with request. I do custom work. ( as a belly dancer I know what I like so i hope I know what you'll like)

Well it's done. The new Steampunk costume is ready for wear. I'll have photos done when I use it; probably be a couple months though as I'm not happy with the  practices yet.

@Faolon - if you don't want to wait for the craft store to restock, try going to your local mechanic and ask if they have any spare bits you can have.  I want to make the same belt as you, and I plan to go to the garage here at work and collect until my heart's content!

I would love to see what you do with your costume. I have a fantastic brown velour choli and tribal pant, and a hand made coin belt necklace of copper with real coins I am thinking about adapting, and a copper scimitar.    I am sort of looking at some of the original era costumes from this historical book, Looking for Little Egypt.  One of our local troupes did an interesting combination of burlesque with tribal, using Moulin Rogue as a basis of their costuming and choreography.

Well I found a cogs and gears galore at the crafts stores here in town but I bought them all out. Now I have to wait for them to restock to do it again. 

Make a great new black and brass costume. Truely a work of art. the bass is done and the beading begun. I'm using washers on the ends of the beaded fringes instead of coins. They even sound better. Ring better and  (crossing finger here) Hopefully stay on better.

The costume is a bit more Burlesque than Traditional in style but since I dance more American tribal/goth style-- it's prefect.

Will add photos when I get the belt finished and have started the beading on the top.

Yes i Make all my own costumes. Cheaper that way most times. But I get want I want for sure always-- instead of settling for the closetest thing to it.
