Here are some full-length shots of my ringmaster costume this year. I am so proud of this costume and I have a thread where I detailed everything that went into making this costume here:


I made the bloomers from the Collette Madeline mini bloomers pattern, made the bustle from my own plans, sewed the cuffs from leftover bloomer fabric by hand, embellished the hat, and moderately altered the jacket from a long-sleeved, belted, double breasted jacket to the one you see here.

Sorry about the flash illuminating my bra in that last photo.

Please leave your comments!
