Indeed there is full version of this picture, but I posted it here cause the quality was quite good.

If we talking about all those costumes from that ball in 1903 - I like especially this one in which  Andrei Vladimirovich was dressed. Misha had also splendid one (poor Mishkin, he lost a diamond clip in the cap that nightXD).
Tsar and Tsarina had in my opinion the worst costumes of all.

Grand Duchess George (Minnie of Greece) had a dreadful outfit...made her look very dumpy!

There's a thread on the 1903 ball if anyone wants to see all the Romanovs and their costumes, as well as many of the other participants.

i saw that pic on ebay and it only says it was taken in 1870s, which is obviously a wrong date

The photo is from the late 1880s, the years of Alexander's travels. I saw it in some book,there were no ID.
