Alright. Since I've had people offer to buy my personal costumes enough times that this listing is warranted, I've decided to add this.

This listing is for a top of the line Tribal Fusion style belly dance costume, which is comprised of a fully embellished bra and belt and probably a skirt.

The pictures are all of things I've made for my clients. In order: Deb Rubin - Belt and Headdress base. Samantha Emanuel - Belt. Sharon Kihara, Bra and belt. Surreyya Hada - Bra,Belt,Skirt & Headdress. Last two photos, I made absolutely everything.

My own things are always a labor of love, and take forever to collect materials for.

I spend months hunting down just the right things from all over the world, and another chunk of time staring at them until the elements coalesce and it basically makes itself.

It can take up to a year, but probably closer to 90 days to make. It will be exclusively yours, handmade to your measurements and specifications.

The price tag means that I will use the $30 a yard fabric, that I get to use the fine, expensive antique trims, and that you will own a piece of wearable art. It means I get to have a LOT of fun making something for you.

If you do decide to purchase this, I'll need to know a few things from you.
Basic measurements -
Bra, bust, waist, and hips, and the measurement of where you want your belt to sit.
What KIND of bra you want, whether you want a cut and sew triangle top, or a covered bra,
What colors you like, and whether there's colors you hate,
and any theme you want me to go with, whether it's Napoleon's Josephine, Day of The Dead, Black Metal Vampire, Deco Erte, or Derelicte. Anything. Or nothing at all.

I enjoy having your trust in my abilities as a costumer, and I truly enjoy making beautiful things. I will send you progress pics from time to time, and let you know how things are coming along.

I am not Wal-Mart. I use the finest materials I can find, and I want you to be happier with your costume than you've ever been.

If you need your costume by a specific date, be sure to include that information as well. If it doesn't clash with my current workload, I can usually accommodate requests.
If you need it very soon, (in a month, for example) there will be a rush charge, which will depend on the amount of time you give me, minimum charge is 20% of total.
Rush charges mean that I move your costume ahead of everyone elses and finish it first.

I cannot legally ship to Italy, so if you're in italy and you want something from me, we're gonna have to figure out a crafty way of getting it to you.

PAYMENT PLAN: 1st payment of 50% is considered a deposit, and is non-refundable. Second part must be remitted within two months or deposit is forfeit. Also, I will not start until I've received payment in full. No rush orders on payment plan.

Frequently asked questions about SnakeChurch

My sizing is very generous, so keep that in mind. If you fit into more than one size, I generally suggest going with the smallest that your measurements are within.

XXS - 29" - 33" Low rise hip / 33"- 40" Bootie / 37" Length.
XS - 31"- 34" Low Rise Hip / 34" - 40" Bootie / 37" Length.
S - 32"- 36" Low Rise Hip / 35" - 42" Bootie / 38.5" Length.
M - 34" - 40" Low Rise Hip / 36" -46" Bootie / 39" Length.
L - 36" - 40" Low Rise Hip / 39" - 48" Bootie / 39" Length.
XL - 39" - 50" Low Rise Hip / 42" - 53" Bootie / 39" Length.
Here's how it goes...First, grab a nice flexible measuring tape (and a helper if you've got one...All I get to work with is the measurements YOU provide me with, so lets make doubly sure they're accurate), and your minimally clad (leggings are fine) bod.

Measurements you will need include:
HIPS: Your low rise hip (from the top of where you would wear a belly dance belt, usually right around your hipbone or just below, depending on preference).
BOOTIE: Around the widest point of your tush.
HIP 2 FLOOR: (from where you took your low hip) to the floor.
Solid Velvet colors include:
Vintage Pink,
Sex Pistol Pink, (hot fuchsia with a little bit of a cool shimmer)

Custom orders will take AT LEAST a month or more as there is lil' bit of a line ahead of you - THE WAIT CAN BE UP TO 4 MONTHS DEPENDING ON MY WORKLOAD AND TIME TO SOURCE MATERIALS.

I can usually accommodate rush requests if my workload allows it, but If you need it by a specific date, please be sure to tell me at the time of purchase. If it's within 2 months, a rush fee will be assessed. If you've requested a time earlier than the allotted four month maximum, I will do my best to get it to you by that date, but it absolutely cannot be guaranteed without a rush fee.

Anything less than a month requires a rush fee. Convo me for more details.
