The following costume components are present and appear as described below.
The hair is black and reaches past the shoulders. Two tendrils of hair hang loosely on each side of the face.
The make-up consists of pink eye shadow and fuscia. The fingernail polish is light pink.
The pair of hair ornaments are worn on each side of the head. They are metallic, and may be sculpted or designed with woven beads. The hair ornaments may include gold and dark purple elements.
The drop earrings are triangular in shape. The top section of the earrings are gold, while the base of each triangle is a dark red color.
The brooch on the jacket may be gold or silver in tone. It is made of a triple circle design with the largest circle in the center.
The epaulets may be designed from the same purple fabric as the capelet and covered with gold beads or gold braid, or they may be sculpted from a metallic gold material.
The body of the ankle length coat is made of a heavy weight fabric in mauve and purple, with swirls or a paisley pattern. The front opening is edged with pink fabric. The long, wide sleeves are made of sheer pink fabric. The sleeves are edged with a scalloped sheer grey fabric, and the edges are decorated with gold stitching or paint. A sheer pink overlay is attached to the back of the jacket. It reaches nearly to the bottom of the jacket. The capelet of the coat is made from a heavy, dark purple fabric. It is top-stitched with gold thread on the bottom edge. The capelet is closed at the neck with a gold brooch made from three joined circles. The high stand-up collar is made of the same pink fabric as the jacket’s front trim. The collar is lined with red suede or fabric that has been dyed with horizontal purple stripes, and it is edged with gold trim. The collar is supported by an interior wire frame or heavy interfacing in order to maintain its proper shape and height.
The dickey is made of dark purple fabric that has been stamped or painted with small red rosettes. The dickey collar is almost as high as the stand-up collar on the coat. The top edge of the collar is made from red fabric that is approximately 2.5 cm wide. A decorative “V” shaped opening is found at the center front of the dickey. The true closure is located at the back.
The cravat is made of lightweight mauve fabric, or a redder shade of purple than the dickey. The bottom of the cravat has a ruffle made of the same red as the collar on the dickey.
The white, form-fitting unitard has long sleeves and a neckline that is not visible beneath the capelet. The unitard sleeves end in a split petal cuff.
The belt is approximately 6 cm wide and is made of very dark purple fabric or suede. The belt is decorated with gold paint and beads, including beads sewn along the top and bottom edges. The belt closes in the back, and there is no buckle in the front. A gold amulet hangs from a purple cord at the front center of the belt. Three swags made from alternating round and tubular gold beads hang across the front of the belt.
The sheer skirt opens in the front. It is made of the same sheer pink fabric as the sleeves and overlay on the coat. The skirt is stamped with rosettes in gold fabric paint. Small rosettes are located at the top, graduating is size to large rosettes at the bottom. The edges of the skirt are painted with gold scallops.
The low-heeled boots are decorated with dark red and dark purple stripes. The boots are a pull-on style with no visible buckles.
