A lovely day to go out into the garden and photograph the latest costume – part of a backpack set for Bradford Lord Mayor’s Parade on the 17th may. It’s an Usherette Dress. This year the theme is “Sensational Cinema”. I tried to hark back to the usherettes of the 30s and 40s when Cinema was in it’s glamorous heyday. There’s also a matching pillbox ice-cream hat that I haven’t photographed yet and a hotdog costume, to be modelled by Tilly the Jack russell.
