Red tribal fusion costume (2006)

gothicfusion04Tribal Fusion still tugged at me, though it became more and more clear that I was a sequins and beads girl at heart. This costume was put together in a short time for a hafla thrown by The Uzume. Tjarda van Straaten was the driving force behind the group and is still going strong, travelling and teaching all over the world.

I wanted to do a Gothic fusion piece to ‘Don’t fear the reaper’. Underneath the long fringe is a red pair of flared pants. I bought the kuchi belts on eBay and got a good deal on those. The bra is covered in the same lycra and I sacrificed a third kuchi belt so I could add bits and pieces to the bra. I ran out of time for the armbands and opted for tying leftover pieces around my biceps.
