I noticed one thing that’s very common among many belly dancers.
We, belly dancers, love taking photos of ourselves looking beautiful before performance.
We love taking photos of our handmade costumes.
Then we love sharing these photos on Facebook and Instagram.
We also love looking at everyone else’s photos! (How many like’s do you hit in a day? 😉 )
…I think we do this for 2 reasons:
Reason #1: We simply enjoy the aesthetics of belly dancing, belly dancers, costumes… and most importantly, our own beauty. (Though some of us may feel embarrassed to admit it… It’s a great thing! 🙂 Be proud of feeling beautiful!)
Reason #2: We’re always searching for beautiful ideas.
In fact, the top reason why people join Sparkly Belly’s Facebook group is because they want to find more costuming ideas! (more on this group later 😉 )
So here are 3 best places that I think will satisfy your cravings for belly dance costume ideas!
