Notes from Mechiel about this project:

This is the first year I have done a peanut festival princess so I'm not very informed about their tradition. A dominant crop in Floresville, TX is peanuts, hence the harvest time festival.

High school girls and boys apply through a committee to be royalty in the festival. I have been working with other festivals/coronations in my area for well over 20 yrs. The Order of the Alamo Coronation of the Queen of Fiesta is the main one I work with as well as the Lutheran Coronation and the Waco, TX Cotton Palace festival.

I made 3 duchesses this year but the event was postponed until next year so I cannot reveal photos of them until April next year.                                                   

The process starts with the artwork of the Robe, gown and train. I source fabric, jewels and beads to create the design. I have employees 3-5 that work alongside me to accomplish the task in the allotted time, 4-7 months. I usually require 3 fittings for the garment.

    The outer look of Blenheim palace is looking luxury one. But, why your is saying that this is neither luxurious nor royal palace. If this is not the case then why you like to call this principle residence as palace?
