Costumes made or "put together" by Dunyah
02/01/09

These are some costumes that offer more coverage than many belly dance costumes. I like costumes that are flattering as well as comfortable and affordable, so I make costume pieces, alter dresses from thrift stores, or put things together in my own style. 
 
Most of these photos are snapshots from performances, but you can get an idea of how the costume worked in motion.
 
You can click on some of the photos to view them larger.
