The store window of a shop, specialised in princely outfits for circumcised boys.
Additionally a little girl’s festive dress is exhibited too.

As girls are not circumcised (not in Turkey, anyway), and therefore have to miss the festive aspect of it – being a prince/princess during at least one day. This is often compensated by a new set of cloths for them, on the circumcision day of a brother.
If they don’t have any brother, this will happen at some other big family event, a wedding for example.
