The jacket was painted, embellished with vintage trim and home decor lace and lace ruffles. The buttons were replaced with vintage buttons, and elastic added for a closer fit.

The bow tie has a pin fastener. Socks are store bought, wig is store bought, but painted orange. Thread bandolier is vintage trim with an elastic thread holder sewn on, spools from stash (most vintage)
