Lightbulb Grass dancers with beaded capes, like em or not?

Very often you would see a grass dancer with a fully beaded regaillia with the basics, cuffs, harness, belt, sidedrops, moccasins, choker, arm bands, headband and couple medallions but very rarly 1 out of 50 grassers, there would be one with beaded cape and just on one occasion i saw one wit front beaded breahcloth, so beaders is it too much or is it style and hype?:D

We had a thread a while ago on how much beadwork is too much. Lot of good laughs in that thread. Basically I think it all depends on personal preference. I think it also depends on how well everything was planned out, or if it was just all thrown together.

I found that thread here's a link:

I don't see why it would be too much.. but it does seem like it would be really heavy . I guess if you are in good shape though...

I think that a beaded cape would be kewl but I think the breechcloth would be heavy and might interfere with the "sway". I guess I like lots of beadwork.

As a fancy dancer, I find that a beaded apron doesn't slow me down at all...a beaded cape does however.

I have grass danced some, and when I used to my apron was fully beaded and I think it flowed well with the outfit.

As for a beaded cape for grass dancers, are we talking about the same style beaded cape for fancy dancers or the beaded top like the Goodwills use? If its the latter, then I like it a lot!!! If its the fancy style, I wouldn't think it would flow well with the lines of a grass dance outfit.

I don't think it'd be too much....
I've seen some grass dancers with really intricate beaded aprons...

as for the weight of the beadwork....
I found that if I add to it over a period of time, I can adjust to the additional weight of the piece... then when I add more beadwork I do it symetrically so the pattern stays even....

my heaviest piece, however, is a "stole" (hangs over the shoulders).... it is balanced front to back so the weight does not bother me...

hmmmm ... a beaded loincloth ???
