Costume Information

General
Time Taken : About 15 hours

Description
This expo we'll be dealing on a stall. My Mum's coming along because we need someone there whilst we're in the masquerade, so we figured she should have her own costume.

This is Prof. Plum, owner of the Khaotic Emporium and Maggie Pie's mum. And yes, she remarried for money.

The top hat was made from scratch with buckram. It's adorned with green and purple cockrel feathers and two peacock feathers. It's made with irredescent raw silk in a vivid purple and green. It's fully lined and comes with the handstitched Khaos logo. It took 6 hours to make, and similar ones will be sold in our store for £90. This one however is not for sale, and goes to a very pleased Mum.

The waistcoat and other accessories are work in progress. The feather collar is build into the waist coat and it is fabulous.

I love the hat. You look fab. Shame that I didn't get to do the stall with you. Sorry that I lost touch after you kindly offered. My annoying internet wil be fixed soon *prays*.

Love the colours you've used. Works really well.
