Hey!

Was doing some basic research on Willie Scott's sacrificial dress - particularly the bridge outfit. Found a DAMN close pattern with Simplicity 5359

BUT was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on terminology I should be using to search for the beads across the dress- particularly the belt area. I know with the Jack Sparrow bead community of madness ANY bead can be tracked down and even those little bells I recognize from my Jack Sparrow days.

You can see these sort of Tiki-shaped clasps below held together by rings... Would anyone have a lead on where to look or what kind of search term I should be using outside of "Belly dancer beads"

Not a huge update, but found some decent ribbon and belts fro the costume. I was hunting for a 100% match... but that was absolutely fruitless.
I went with this pattern for the beaded trim, will likely crop it to 2.5 inches:

And these little 8mm flowers that there are hundreds of all over the pants and shirt:

A fun little annoying discovery is while I was analyzing the shirt I noticed that for some ridiculous reason there are actually a 2nd later of bigger silver flower beads UNDER the shirt. I can't understand why this is and probably wont replicate that aspect of it, but it's there... just to make me crazy.
