2009 - 01-10 Moraig's Pelican Mantle
Half circle mantle.
Main fabric is white printed snowflakes on cotton (for Nordskogen).
Lining = poly/cotton brocade tablecloth (yay Christmas) woven with holly leaves and berrys in a deep red.
Applica = a variety of fabrics for the color and texture.
Cloak "clasp" = 2 self covered buttons. These may be machined embroideried with Pelicans in the future.
Gold cord with bobbles and tassels at ends.
Both the buttons and bobbles are weighted to help counteract the fabric weight and prevent stranglation.
The main decoration is Moraig's arms - 6 conjoined holly leaves with 3 red berries surrounded by a red wavy ribbon.
The pelican on the left represents Richard. The second drop of blood is for Gevehard - Richard's other protege to be elevated. Moraig (the pelican on the right) has left the nest - leaving it empty as Richard has no more proteges at this time. The yellow belt reaching from one to the other is broken.
Also herald's badge and baronial coronet (hidden by hair).
