The seventies brought us many tacky and wild clothing styles, but the most famous is probably disco clothing with its flared trousers and bright colors. Two of the most popular colors for disco clothing are metallic silver or gold – these colors are popular because they match the large mirrored disco balls that hang from the ceilings of discotheques. To make a gold disco costume you can use any shiny gold clothing including gold jump suits, gold dresses or gold shirts, or you can turn yourself into a giant gold disco ball if you prefer to wear a funny costume.
Belly Dancer outfits are a popular gold costume style, the shine from the gold helps to accentuate the gyrating motion of a belly dancer when they perform. Their costumes are typically ornate and intricate, featuring gold tassels and trinkets attached to sexy tops and revealing skirts.
Gold costumes in the original Star Trek TV series where worn by command officers, whereas in The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager the gold uniforms are worn by engineering and security personnel.
