Silkdancer: Shaula creates richly hued, expertly blended, and magically designed silk veils. They come in a range of shapes and sizes, including half circles, rectanges and veil fans; and they come in a variety of silk weights. Also, she can take custom orders to match your favorite costume.
Reconstructing History: Kass McGann of Reconstructing History is the amazing costumer and historian who has lovingly crafted a series of patterns. RH is an amazing source for folkloric, historically accurate costume patterns, including gorgeous Persian and Ottoman coats that are perfect for bellydance coverups.

David will be photographing the show. Any performers who are interested in purchasing their pictures can contact David directly at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Esme's Closet: Esme's Closet is an eclectic assortment of belly dance wonders. We have amazing jewelery, fluttery fan veils, magnificent swords, wings, tribal and practice wear, belly dance costuming supplies and loads of other belly dance accessories and goodies. Check back for our new upcoming line of one-of-a-kind designer costumes. Proprietor Zobeida Ghattas has been on the professional belly dance scene since the tender age of 15. Since then, she has gotten an exclusive taste of the things that belly dancers are looking for on the market.
