i know!

Would you like to be Little Lord Fauntleroy for Halloween?
This suit was worn by six-year old Walter Hamilton Moberly during the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign. In June 1887, Walter travelled to London especially to watch the Queen drive through the streets to Westminster Abbey. He wore this new suit of mauve plush, with a matching hat and a lace collar.
From the Victoria & Albert Museum.
