|There are many
variations in today's Fancy Dance outfits. All dancers wear a roach, and
most dancers wear beaded headbands with a rosette on the front. A beaded harness is draped over the neck and hangs past the waist. Normally, a beaded and fringed yoke is worn over the shoulders and a beaded apron at the waist. In addition to their aprons, Fancy Dancers wear
beaded cuffs and side drops to cover their thighs while dancing. For footwear, beaded moccasins are
worn, with bells at the knees and Angora hide around the calf. The signifying mark of a Fancy Dancer is his bright, twin bustles that are made from feathers decorated with dyed hackle feathers and plumes. One bustle is tied around the neck, and the other is tied to the waist. Matching arm bustles
are also worn.
