So here's "Mr. Bomb" as the boys call him, all laid out on the floor. I need to stitch his face down yet so I may monkey around with the layout of the features a bit more. The white oval will be a cut out where little H's head will be a la this style of costume.
I was pawing through the stash this morning because I had a faint memory that I still had some metallic green silk organza left over from the Victorian fancy dress water costume of days gone by. And yes, I do in fact still have some! I'm not entirely sure it's enough for Ariel's hem motifs but I think so. In any event I think the two fabrics look pretty great together (ignore the wrinkles!)
