A possible way of combination and decoration
I made this tribal fusion costume by just adding and combining material, clothes and accessories.

If you may be looking for some inspiration perhaps this will give you a ruff idea.

Stuff I bought:
- flare pants including hip scarf
- well fitted bra
- shell belt

- brown and golden lace for pants and hipscarf
- green stretchy velvet for the bra
- thin beige ribbon to decorate the bra

Stuff I used to make it look good:
- a bracelet with coins on -> used the coins for the bra
- the lace hem of an old skirt -> used to extend and decorate the hip scarf
- a neclace with kauri shells -> used to decorate the bra
- a neclace with a pendant -> used to decorate the bra
- a pair of tights -> cut into a longsleeved top

Awesome!! I love the tribal style outfits. Unfortunately I only have Egyptian bellydance lessons where I live. At the moment I'm working on a new outfit too and I was considering using kauri shells. Can you tell me how to sew them on? Do you drill holes in them, or just use the 'gap' that's already there?

Hey =) same as me, there aren't any tribal fusion courses where i live. When I sewed the kauri shells on I wasn't good at sewing, but it still worked. No need to make holes, just use the gap. If you want to make it extra safe you can go round it a few times.

actually, sry I just remembered, my kauri shells were fastened to a chord, which probably made it easyer. Try using the gap anyway ;)
