Mr Jackdaw is based on a character from a 1970s children's novel The Mountain of Magic by Beverley Nichols and was designed and created in the aesthetic of filmmaker Terry Gilliam.

Inspired by the nature of Jackdaws, who are often renowned for their love - and often theft - of bright, shiny objects, the costume was created entirely from found, reclaimed objects.

Design and creation by Liz Sheard
