Look at those adorable wee pickelhaubes!
I was so thrilled to see that this blog helped to inspire this gorgeous creation! You must go check out Tyson Vick’s amazing costume blog, One Delightful Day, where he shares an excellent tutorial on making this hat, as well as other amazing creations!

* Possibly with real stuffed birds if the era is any indication. The outfit was cute at first but now it looks like a massacre.
Oh! Aeroplane hat! And birdies! I love these!

I loved this bonnet!
Miss Lily Elsie as Anègle Didier, this is from a production called “The Count of Luxembourg” performed in 1911. I love her outfit- fur, feathers and silks by the looks of it!
