Belly dancer headshop

Steamcon is less than 2 months away!

I just bid on this skirt on eBay as part of my steampunk belly dance costume. The skirt is really inexpensive compared to some specifically advertised as steampunk or dance skirts.




My costume will end up looking a lot like this:





Now I just need something to layer on over the skirt. This brown utility belt on etsy.com might be perfect if it didn't cost twice as much as the skirt:




And I wrote to a woman who used to sell these clock skirts on etsy. She says she has just enough fabric left to make me one for only $35. Would it clash as an over layer to the white skirt, since the skirt is white but the clocks are on an off-white background? I might be able to fudge a black shawl as a hip scarf between the two skirts if that would help them blend better:

bustle fanny pack

The most perfect purse for my steampunk belly dance costume, a bustle fanny pack!



It zips open and holds stuff and everything. It would look so good with my custume. Just one problem. The artist wants a $150 for this bustle fanny pack. I just don't think any fanny pack is worth $150.
