Author: Berkeley, Wayne
Description: Sketches of costumes.
Female costume consisting of a head piece, chest piece, back piece, hip piece and suit. The whole costume is designed as a butterfly. The head piece is a helmet with a feathered front emerging from a medallion, winged sides and a back of layers of strings of pearls. The suit appears to be a bodysuit, worn under a chest piece piece shaped like butterfly wings. The back piece consists of two pairs of wings, patterned with ovals and dots. The hip pieces which project out at the sides have the same pattern. Strings of pearls are draped around the wrists and attached to the wings. The costume is completed by the shinbands which have small wings attached to the sides.
