Description: Designed for Marcia Chandler - Barbados.
Male costume consisting of a head piece, mask and suit. The eye mask is red. The head piece is shaped like a pennant, with the face painted in red, dark green, black and brown and with a long stringy brown wig falling to the chest. The suit is a double layered red and gold skirt with a studded belt worn over brown fringed trousers. The costume is completed by the brown wristbands with long fringe and the white boots. The body of the masquerader is painted green, reminiscent of the corrosion on brass.
