Female costume consisting of a flamenco dancer's suit. The suit is in three pieces: bra top, skirt and armbands. The bra is blue, unadorned. The armbands and skirt are both in the same style, fabric and colour: cut in tiers like a flamenco dancer's skirt. The fabrics are black with a predominantly pink floral pattern, pink and white. The masquerader has a Spanish comb on the hair, worn on the crown and carries a pair of castanets.
