My word, that headgear must be heavy. The early light served well to get the best out of this costumed lady.

Each costume is more elaborate than the previous one.
Do they have a competition or do they just parade?
This is a real stunner - beautifully taken Lillian.

She must need a neck brace to carry that huge headgear. Or, maybe its a man under the costume. Whatever, it is so elaborate and beautiful.

She looks amazing in blue. Her costume seems very heavy. I wonder if sometimes there isn't a strong young man underneath these gorgeous costumes and masks. The light is beautiful in this shot.

The pose and composition looks very good, Lillian, and the drab stone emphasises the luxuriousness of the costume. The whites are a little blue/grey though, adjusting the white point just a little makes a big difference.

Gorgeous colour Lillian. There is something about the pose and the size of that arm and hand that makes me wonder if there is a man in hiding there! There must be something as others above have mentioned it! Great shot!
