"Greedy!!"



This costume is extremely ornate, but only seen briefly in "Think of Me" and before "Little Lotte". It is a very fine example of the ornamented evening gowns of the bustle era. The design shows an asymmetric design, with a fitted bodice continuing into the draped overskirt. It also suggests a heavily pleated hem, but many versions have a gathered hem. The dress has a long and richly draped and decorated train, and there's lots of tassels as decorations both in front and in behind. Many versions also have tassel decorations. There's a floral decoration in the neckline as well as on the train. She wears long cream gloves (sometimes black) and a little feather hair decoration. The skirt is supported by a bustle construction.

In the Vegas production, the character was named "Fifi".
