I started off with the idea of the skin wig, but when I came to photograph the back of the costume I felt there needed to be hair flowing from under the bonnet, so I changed the wig to a handmade Wendy Feidt wig that has extra long mohair. If you prefer the skin wig let me know. The body is French Bebe reproduction composition. She wears a dusty peach color dress made from 100% Vintage silk. The main lightweight silk crepe fabric along with the attached laces was part of an Antique boudoir gown.
