Mollie Rodie created this sketch for the grand finale of the Victory Queen Carnival held in Wellington Town Hall in June 1941. Queen carnivals were a popular way to raise money during World War II. Women dressed in fabulous outfits and competed for votes to raise money for patriotic causes. The winner was crowned Queen of Victory. This particular sketch was for the costume of the peers.
The Victory Queen Carnival finale was the triumphant end to a four-month fundraising effort. Hundreds of volunteers helped to raise over £100,000 towards a national appeal to support New Zealand troops, their dependants, and those suffering from bombing in Britain.
