This is one of the most simple costume pieces to make, The tricky part is weighting it; even that can be made simple though.
Circular veils are a little harder to make then a rectangular veil but are beautiful to use.
Sandals are great for outdoor, tribal, or stage dancing (If your not the first dancer you may find that beads and coins tend to embed themselves in your bare feet.).
For those of us who dont like dancing barefoot but still like a lot of freedom of movement with the feet, ballet slippers are a good buy.
These shoes are wonderful for Renaissance Festivals, they can often be washed, are comfortable enough for walking and dancing in and simple enough not to be "out" of period".
These are wonderful shoes for male or female dancers and can add that "I dream of Jennie" ambiance to your ensemble.
Shoes from India
The beautiful shoes that come from India can make a nice accent to your costume if you don't want to dance barefoot.
