A Mermaid for the 1920s.

 A couple more photos from the Miss Fisher exhibition. In one episode Miss Fisher took part in a magic show in place of the female star who died while trying to escape from a locked glass tank. Dressed as a mermaid, Miss Fisher took the victim's place in the locked glass tank, but survived!
Apparently the hardest part for the costume designers was to create a costume that was good and secure in the water and that could with withstand Miss Fisher's squirmings as she attempted to break out of her shackles and get out of the tank. The head gear was really difficult in that regard apparently.

Really didn't like that episode!! But the costumes were wonderful, as usual.
