But it didn't really work. Because the main figure is holding a drink, he really needed to be in front of an appropriate background, like a pub. Gordon makes models, so I thought it would be cute to use one of his current diorama which is Victorian London.
Again, this didn't work either, he's wearing the wrong period to fit neatly into this environment. So we dragged out an old set of models that fit the time period of the costume much better:
This was much better - and definitely the backdrop I'll progress with.
