THE "BONBON RIBBON"






This costume is referred to as "Bonbon Ribbon" in many production, but in West End they call her "Cartwheel".

The outift consists of a striped, multi-coloured corseted bodice, with a "bertha" like ruff neckline. The design also features multi-stringed straps, being more decorative than constructive, though not all stage costumes have these. The skirt is multi coloured and shaped into defined loops - same ruff shape as the collar - trimmed with golden ponpons or beads. This arrangement is repeated in the flat headwear. In addition there's multi-striped tights in various colours, plus high-heeled boots and a classical halfmask.
