This costume was made alongside the Santa costume for Santa’s Magical Grotto over in Northern Ireland. We had free rein over the design of the these costumes so long as they remained traditional and recognisable as Father and Mrs Christmas. We opted to design the costumes with a Scandinavian feel, as though Santa had travelled from the North Pole to Northern Ireland where he was welcomed by a Magical Grotto.
Mrs Santa’s costume comprises of a hat, scarf, blouse, bodice, coat, hand muff, under skirt, over skirt and apron. The majority the costume is made from warm wool blends. As this costume is a for a meet and great experience, both indoor and outdoor, we made the costume breakdown into different layers and looks for each environment.
The hat and coat are made from wool blends are fully lined. The fur on the hat is completely removable for cleaning purposes.
The scarf and under skirt are made from cotton. The under skirt, skirt and apron all tie at the waist for adjustability. The under skirt has a decorative machine stitched panel all around the hem.
The skirt and apron are made from wool blends and are trimmed with braid.
The bodice is made from a melton wool and lined with cotton. It has a zipper at the back for ease and speed with dressing. It laces at the front with cord and aiglets.
The belt is made from a purchased buckle mounted upon a dyed leather strip with brass hardware.
To finish the costume the scarf has two working bells for that little tinkle as she moves around.
