Pierrotte Halloween Costume

This is a beautiful costume and photo. Here's the note, and a link to the blog:

"For Halloween I wanted a costume that people wore in the past before the packaged costumes that are consumed by masses today. After a little research I came upon the Pierrotte, a sad clown that was used as a stock character of mime and Commedia dell'Arte. I saw pictures of this clown everywhere - it was the hippie costume of its time! My location in this picture, the Exorcist Steps in Georgetown, D.C.

Dress: vintage 60's
Black Belt: no idea
Hat: handmade
Black Mary Jane Heels: Style & Co."
