THE AFRICAN TRIBE MAN





This costume is a perfect example of the stereotype Victorian idea of an African man, and is pretty much a direct copy of an outfit depicted in a sketch of the Masquerade ball in Palais Garnier in late 19.th century.

This costume looks pretty awesome on stage. All the green and golden details are glittering and sparkly, and yet it's so simple in design. The wearer wears a blown/black body suit with a "leaf" collar and skirt. The "leaves" are repeated in the fountain like head garb. He also wears a golden mask with a bone or ring through his nose, glittering jewellery, golden arm rings and golden boots. The brown/black body suit is usually made of a dark fabric with sequences or similar, which makes it sparkle on stage .
