Recycled Bellydancer Costume


Check out this bellydancer costume, made from Superman bed sheets and pajamas! Quite possibly the coolest thing ever.

amber-elizabeth The city of Pittsburgh, PA recently held an event called the Re-Model Gala.

They focus on the use of “re-vamped, re-purposed & remarkable” costumes to promote environmental-friendly costuming and artisic recycling.

Our costume pal and superhero stylist, Elizabeth Amber, contributed to the event by making the bellydancer’s cape and sash out of her old superman bedsheets. The top and armbands were from an old dress shirt, and the pants were modified from a pair of old pajamas.

So. Very. Cool! What a fun and unique way to use costuming for a good cause. Well done, Amber!

    Thanks for the extra coverage! They weren’t my jammies, they were the designers but not important. The outfit was a real group effort. A designer, two different people sewing, plus the adorable model & dancer. We should definitely do this for April’s Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art Class since Earth Day is that month.
