Hi there!

I made this figure for the 'Realistic Character' category over on the Classic Castle competition.
I hadn't seen this skirt technique used anywhere before, but I'd loved to know if it has been.

The capes just fit over the leg pegs. Using the full cape makes the figure quite tall, and Queen Elizabeth is actually stood on a 2x2 brick here so she can stand up.
Someone suggested using the new shorter capes (see below) which also works, but in my opinion, looks a bit out of scale.
