The Thrift store, my fellow dancers, hands down! Give me a thrift store, a sewing machine, and some random odds and ends and I will give you a totally stage worthy costume like no other!!
If I were to BUY costume items, which I do occasionally...
I have some luck with Moondance Bellydance, but their shipping is SO high it is a definate deterrent. When I shop from there I usually group an order with my dance partner to help with that, but their prices are good and I haven't yet had any issues with quality.
Through a local vendor I have bought some items by Sharif Wear and I totally love them. They have a website you can purchase from.
Ashner by Elizabeth, ashnerbyelizabeth.wazala.com/ , makes awesomely versatile hip wraps. I do not own one, but a few of my troupemates do and I regret not having gotten one when she was at Tribal Rev last year (I will make up for it this year, I swear!). The design is great; a hip wrap, a top, a cover up. Love it.
On Etsy here, I have not purchased from this seller, but have communicated with her some and she is so kind. I LOVE some of the items in her shop. www.etsy.com/shop/shawaza

Hello all - just joined and felt like contributing :)
I look at Etsy a lot but my most favourite vendor at the moment is Tribal Bazaar. They're always fast with shipping, have a great range of products and their prices are very reasonable! www.tribalbazaar.com
I'm saving up to blow some cash on a deluxe costume item one day.... but for now I'm sticking to thrift store/vintage store finds.
