Costumes - Egypt 2009While in Khan el Khalili we checked out Mahmoud Abd El Gahaffar and Yasser.
The group also looked at costumes by Aziz, Eman Zaki, Hanan, Hallah and Aida Nour. I gave the last two a miss as I was all costumed out - and I had already found two costumes I liked.
From Eman Zaki I did a mix and match based on Sarah's beaded body stocking idea. We had arrived quite late in the tour for costumes from scratch (and mine was totally from scratch) - however in less than a week they had completed my costume (it was delivered 3:30am before we flew out!)
At Hanan's I found a beautiful dress which needed only a small amount of work before I could walk out with it.
Here's a taster (and yes if you click them you can get a larger image).
