So this one is a bit smoother than the last one. It's lycra on a poster board frame. There is a mixture of hand stitching and glue holding it all on the framework. And I got a little overly happy with the ribbons flowing down the back, but that silver ribbon was just so pretty I wanted to keep using it. I am thinking about taking the chin strap off and putting it on a comb instead...looking at it I just don't like the bow as much as I did when I first attached it.
