One example of an officer at most all Spontoon Island official events with 'company'.
This elaborate style of costume is from the 1930s, and most likely for a major political
or religious event... or perhaps even dressed for a part in a theatrical presentation.
A neighborhood or village singer would be in a more plain costume, but she
would still be expected to be present at the start of most major gatherings.
