as promised, costumes for sale....

x-posted to Bhuz. Comment here if you're interested, but I did promise to respond to the first people on Bhuz. That said, there may be no interest on Bhuz.

Sexy Cappuccino

Can Cappuccinos be sexy? If so, this costume is a sexy cappuccino! Strands of beads accentuate every moment, and the daring cutouts along each side demand attention.  This costume was designed especially for Katia of Boston by Mahmoud. When she goes to buy costumes to bring back to the US to sell, she sends him design ideas. This costume is one such special design, and so, will be completely unique.

Why am I selling it? I have simply never been thin enough to wear it confidently. I wore it approximately three times before I realized my muffin-top had muffin-top. In this picture, I had lost some weight and I've never made it quite back there as it's about 5 lbs less than my "happy weight".

Paid 650$. Would like 550$.
Comes with arm bands, as well as skirt & bra.

Measurements:
Halter style bra with 11" bra strap. 34" circumference. Cups are 7.5 across and 7" high. The skirt is 38" long. The high hip is unstretched 23" to 40" stretched to the max. The low-hip approximately 44".




Gorgeous, shimmery turquoise Sim Moda. This is an unusual design. The skirt has a v-shape that lengthens the torso. There are two slits over the legs with long strips of fabric to create motion. Strands of beads attached all over the skirt highlight your shimmy. The top is like a choli top, but has a built-in bra and straps on the inside. That flower you see on the bra is a big piece of metal jewelry - not just a sequin applique. The back has a keyhole effect. The whole thing is so encrusted in AB crystals and beading, even the back. It also comes with a headband and chiffon veil (not shown in performance pics).

Paid $800. Asking $500. Comes from a non-smoking, pet-free home; and I always air out my costumes after use, applying the vodka/water solution if necessary. There is slight discoloration underneath the arms. It isn't so much that I wouldn't wear it anymore to perform, but I would feel remiss not mentioning it. No odor.

Please note your interest here - buyers will be taken in order (i.e. if a buyer does not come through, next buyer will be considered). Payment through paypal or money order. Will consider personal check but you will need to wait for it to clear before I can ship. Shipping 15$. Will ship in USA only. Please post questions here (so that answers can be visible to all).

Measurements:
Bra - 33" circumference. Cups 6.5 across by 7" up/down.
36" long.
High hip 37" max, very little stretch due to the beading.
Full Bum up to 48" according to measurement, but will look best no larger than 44".

The color is a bit darker and richer than the flash allows for.
Halter style neck, on a velvet halter style bra. Skirt has a gathered velvet section over the hips and flares out into a flurry of chiffon. Lots of big crystals, plus looped fringe. Hip strap attached but could be removed without much impact to the design. Also comes with gauntlets, neck decor and headband.

Paid $600 (which was a discounted price at the time). Asking $400. Comes from a non-smoking, pet-free home; and I always air out my costumes after use, applying the vodka/water solution if necessary.



Measurements:
Halter/Neck Strap - 11" from bra to end (2 of these).
Bra cups - 8" across to 6" high.
Bra circumference 32" (this surprised me because it fits me and I'm more like 33" but it must stretch a teensy bit.
Skirt high hip - 32" unstretched to 40" stretched.
Bum expandable to at least 44" (my measurements).
40" long.

Also Gold D-Cup Neckelmanns.

Gold Neckelmann's D-cup. Originally 195$. Yours for 75$. Shipping 5$. Paypal, money order accepted. Check OK but will cash first. Will use US Priority Mail. USA only.

34" straight across on the belt, which has a velcro closure. It's very comfortable, not rigid at all, and molds to your hips. Lots of fringe. Bra is based on a regular bra, approximately a 36D. 36" around. Bra cups are 7.5 x 7. No padding. Has not been reinforced. Just your basic Neckelmann's costume, good for a basic workhorse, student recital, or Carnival costume. It also comes with a "necklace".

I TOTALLY FORGOT to take a picture of the bra. Will post on request from interested parties. It is very much in the style of this Neckelmann's: Site Builder

oh, how I wish I had money, though I don't think the bras would quite fit me. and my girls are big enough that without the right support they will fall out.

Really gorgeous, I hope you find buyers.

Ditto this! I just measured a couple of my bras today, and it looks like I really need at least 9" across by 7" high in the cup. And they ARE more than I can afford. Pity--I'd have snapped up that red Sim in a heartbeat!

*drool*

That Red Sim is gorgeous and would *almost* fit me. I bet I could even make it work with a bit of creative tailoring. Too bad I'm broke and not belly dancing at the moment.

Good luck!
