Right from the beginning Pelham puppets were dressed with care. Most of the clothes were individually made for each puppet and the materials were mostly of natural origin.
Attention to detail was important. Puppets were given felt buttons or felt flowers. Feathers were put in caps and puppets often had accessories like musical instuments or broomsticks.
Though the oufits followed basic patterns, lots of different cotton prints were used to make the skirts for the tyrolean girls or the shirts for the pop singers giving a bit of variety and choice to the buyer.
Some puppets were very detailed indeed. The Beefeater was an example of this and his outfit made from pre-printed material,was amazing.He looked just like the real thing.
Some special puppets were made into historical figures and again their outfits were highly detailed. with beads and lace.
