Lily Bailie

This is Lily Bailie's opulent menacing costume representing the twisted relationship between religion and violence in Northern Ireland. Golden vestments printed with the paraphernalia of church and terrorist, entwined in beguiling patterns, a soup of misused wealth and power encrusted with golden soldiers.
This is a terrifying costume full of accepted tradition and belief, with sinister almost invisible undertones of terror and war.
