Bellydance jewels on the more high-end side of things with a collection of silver: hinged vintage cuffs studded with spikes, hoop earrings, pairs of dancing anklets “not for beginners,” headpieces slathered in fringe, lots of ornate and dramatic pieces to enhance an ensemble with lots of shine and noise. Clothes, bags, belts, and other accessories are rich with bright embroidery and they carry things to decorate the home, too.

Just what it says, with voluminous bellydancing styles that sweep all the way out to 12 yards, and customization in adding ruffles and contrasting colors. Double layers, mermaidy velvet-topped silhouettes, and slits that run to the top of the thigh are also offered as possibilities, along with the garnishings of fringed hip scarves, and they also do tango pants.

Bellydance fashion from the Netherlands, mostly traditional gear with flashes of tribal fusion. The skirts feature both patchwork wrapped and modern asymmetrical minis with the by-now standard page of flared dancing pants, and there are mitts and hooded scarves for further accessorizion. Also a good place for all the adornments: belts of mirrors and draping chains, spiky cuffs, flowered tiaras and fascinators and metal tassels to secure into the hair, and lots of great big jingling bits.

A gigantic catalog of handmade historical clothing and beyond for men and women, from Marie Antoinette ensembles to anime costumes. Full of gowns browsable by era, kids’ outfits, and things for pirates and brides, as well as harder-to-find key dressup bits: Elizabethan partlets, maternity bodices, a page of “underskirt devices,” elaborate neck ruffs, bodice jewels, wedding circlets, all the period-appropriate hats, velvet jester hose that offer the option of coordinating codpieces if that’s the kind of guy you are. Custom is extremely welcome.

Bellydancing skirts made with massive amounts of yardage for maximum twirl, garnished with mirrors and brocade trim for extra flair, or left plain to let the movement do all the talking. Velvet cholis, bras that drip with coins and kuchi, tassel and fringe belts for layering, silk veils to dance with, harem bloomers, and lots of cheerfully noisy jewelry.
