Maui and the Fish Hook

  • Details:

    Maori legend has it that New Zealand was fished from the sea by the demigod Maui. Maui secretly made a fishhook from a magical ancestral jawbone and fished up the North Island of New Zealand. To this day the North Island is known to Maori as Te Ika a Maui or Maui’s fish. Made from fabric and gems this costume represents the depths of the ocean from where Maui fished up New Zealand. The figure of Maui is depicted on the top of the costumes hook.

    This costume is size 8-10 with a fully adjustable corset top. The skirt is elasticated  and fastens with hook and eyes. Super comfortable to wear, it comes with a winged cape to enhance your stage performance, head piece and neck piece.
