The dress makes them look old, but their faces are young.
The coat looks like a cape. One has a design on it. It's not fur.
They are wearing them at an exhibition of 18th Century women's winter clothing.
Miranda, on the left, is thinking "Oh help, I think my hat's going to fall off. It looks like a stuffed chicken. A fluffy Easter chicken."
On her hat a big black rook is chasing the chicken. The chicken took refuge in the hat. The rook is having trouble getting onto the summit of the hat.
Miranda is meant to be demonstrating the hat and coat and the birds have landed on the hat. The fur collar is tickling her ears and making her sneeze.The odd thing about the bird is that is has snowdrops growing out of it.
Miranda is thinking: "Help the fur collar is tickling my nose and my hat's falling off. I hope nobody's watching us. I do feel silly with this chicken on my head."
Suki (on the right), her mouth is turned down, sullen. On the hat there is a blackbird's tail. "Do I have to stand here looking like a dope with this idiot hat which is nearly blowing off? I have a whole herb garden on my head! The fur is tickling my ears. How long do I have to have this thing on? I'm going to sneeze and I can't find my handkerchief. I feel as if the forest on my head is going to blow off."
They are spinsters, even sisters, maybe friends, demonstrating women's clothing. You'd wear these if it's cold and at a posh occasion, maybe a theatre or maybe they are going to open an exhibition of clothing of the early 19th Century.
Miranda is very worried. She's afraid that the chicken is going to fall off and the bird's tail feathers are going to tickle her ears.
Suki feels a fool with this headgear on. "I feel as though the hat is going to fall off sideways. I feel as though I've got a field on my head with the wind blowing the leaves. What if my hat blows off?"
They are taking part in a money raising event for a charity called "Help the Elderly Who Have Nothing to Wear Except Their Grandma's Old Clothes".
