  • The mannequin needed a head and hands for the display of the full dress and veil. The sleeves were so snug that the hands had to be mounted after the mannequin was dressed (real hands can be held in a narrow position, cast mannequin hands can’t.
  • Acid-free tissue paper formed into hair, with a divided bun sculpted to create a secure rest for the headpiece frame.
  • The headpiece and veil in position.
