Member Makes Featuring Mechiel Whitemore - Peanut Festival Prince & Princess Project

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 https://webcare360.com/ 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?
