Get Creative With Sparkling Patterns

Why settle for average when you can turn your Irish dance costume into a work of art? Use rhinestones to create intricate patterns on your dress, from swirling Celtic designs to shimmering stars, inspired by the famous Irish night sky. Planning your rhinestone decoration in advance allows you to strategically place them in key areas of your costume to create eye-catching contrast and depth.  Whether adding embellishment to your custom dress or giving a resale dress a lift, you can find rhinestones that compliment or match exactly what you have.  

Accessorize With Bedazzled Bling

Dance shoes, hairpieces, and belts can all benefit from a little rhinestone magic. Adding rhinestones to your dance shoes gives a stylish and dynamic twist as you glide across the dance floor. For example, consider covering shoes buckles, outlining the straps of your shoes or covering the entire heel for an extra touch of sparkle. And don't forget your hair! Secure your curly locks or wig with rhinestone-adorned hairpins, add an appliqué with rhinestones on headband or a dazzling complimentary tiara to complete the look.

Amp Up the Sparkle With Colored Rhinestones

Who said rhinestones have to be only clear or Aurora Borealis? Shake things up by adding colored rhinestones to your Irish dance costume that matches or complements your existing design. The most popular color for Irish dance costumes is Emerald Green, I’m sure you can guess why!  Choose to make a gradient effect, create a ravishing rainbow, or simply use different shades of your favorite color to turn heads and impress the audience with your unique style.
