We will be ordering costumes from LRose Designs. They will be custom made to your style and size specifications by a lovely family owned company in California! When calculating prices keep in mind that we will have a 15% discount on everything and we will each add $5 to cover the cost of shipping and insurance. I will send you your total after you place your order. You can bring a check or cash to class to pay or let me know if you want an invoice for credit/debit/paypal payments.
Orders are due with payment by March 9.
Costumes (Tuesday L3)- Teal trumpet skirts and tops from LRose and a copper Bella belt. Feel free to get copper or teal arm accessories if you want. Costumes (Thursday L2)- Gold satin circle skirt, red top, red Bella belt Costumes (Thursday L1)- Black satin skirts, a veil (color options),a top that matches your veil (color options), any hipscarf that matches the top and veil (those you can search for on your own from various websites, bellydance.com has a lot of options)
Design Top style-The options are here. You can choose any style except tube top, u-top, choli bra, quarter top, bolero, hooded wrap top, and jacket. Top customized- There are tons of options so read through the top styles carefully and don't hesitate to ask me for help clarifying the different styles/options. Generally you can pick sleeve type, neckline (pinched, unpinched, sweetheart etc.) and for lace-ups you can usually choose double strings or single. If your style has the banded option definitely get it, they are more comfortable that way and it will hide any bra you wear under it. I'm going to limit the sleeve options to the following: sleeveless, cap, short, 3/4, long, gauntlet, peek-a-boo, or mini ruffle if your dance has props (it is hard to do veil, sword, fan veil, or cane with flowy sleeves). Cold shoulder and cold armpit styles are fine too. Skirt styles- If you are in a class using trumpet skirts you can see pictures here. If you are in a class using circle skirts you can see pictures of those here. Anything else-Feel free to get headbands or arm cuffs (if you went with a sleeveless top) for accessories. You can also order any other costume or workout gear that you want to take full advantage of our group order discount.
Sizing Skirt length- Measure from the point you want it to sit on your hips down to the floor. It should brush the ground. We can do these in class if anyone wants help, it is very hard to get accurate measurements if trying to measure yourself. Top size- Check the size chart on the LRose website. If you are in between sizes order the bigger size. If you have any concerns about fitting the tops we can also submit your bust and ribcage measurements instead of choosing a size on the chart.
Sizes from past years For the skirt length and top size if you like how the items you ordered in a previous show fit I can look up what you ordered. We could also alter the length or size if you want a fit different from last time (ex. if you need the skirt 1 inch longer). You can just write 'use from last show' or '1 inch longer then last show' or something like that on the length or size lines if you want me to look it up. If you have a costume from a previous show that works with this fall's costume requirements you can write in 'using the one from ____ show'.
