Fancy Dress Ball 2010

Vince in his Penguin Costume. During the 1860s men typically wore tailcoats to formal evening events, like balls. Vince was fortunate enough to have a tailcoat made by the talented Kara Bartels of We thought that the tailcoat would give the perfect look for a Penguin costume.

Vince researched a little to determine that, yes, Americans did know about Penguins in the 1860s. He then created this Penguin mask - yes, he sewed it together himself.
