A substore of Pendragon Clothing that specializes in steampunk fashion. Men’s doublets, vests, and jackets decorated with distressed straps, tooling, and zippers, outfitting highwaymen and pirates and anybody thrilled by the prospect of concho snaps. The Women’s page is a bodice-fest of earth tones and industrial clasps and includes a bustled coat that pairs well with the corsetry. Accessories look to be on the way. Thanks, Miko!

Gowns, gowns, gowns, wild custom fantasy confections for throwing teaparties, getting married, smacking courtiers, wandering enchanted woods, or other moments that demand voluminous skirts – they also stock Nataya for more subdued special occasions. Also plus sizes, men’s fancy dress, and ornate ren-faire/bridal-party things for kids. A good place to find medieval circlet-necklace-belt sets to drape the body in chains of pearls.

Meticulous Victorian reproductions specializing in mourning wear. No shiny beads or sequins here, it’s clothing that strives for period correctness in lots of jacket-and-bustle ensembles that garnish lace overlay with ruffled necklines and fabric-covered buttons. There’s also brighter dress for when you’re ready to cast off the black in favor of peacock festivity. No set catalog – “email me about a gown” appears at the bottom of each page, and custom is very welcome.

Super-duper extravagant corsetry and fancy dress from Barcelona. The elegantly nipped waists are presented in Victorian buckles, circus stripes, tailored tartan, can-can lace, steampunk leatherette, gothic batty bustlines, industrial latches, and many other sumptuous permutations, often with skirts, pasties, jackets, and millinery to match. Bridalwear, too. Thanks, Sara!

Modern jewelry and accessories festooned with genuine dated bits of bronze antiquity: necklaces made from Roman casket lock covers, cinch belts garnished with medieval girdle rings, thick Tudor-buckled warrior cuffs, musket balls popping up as a common motif. It’s the kind of stuff that lends just a touch of ancient history to a contemporary outfit as opposed to the whole ren-faire kaboodle, although it also blends seamlessly into the current vogue of rugged Victoriana.

This site provides everything needed for a proper teaparty, in porcelain drinkware and all the staple Victorian accessories to set the right atmosphere: fans, floppy hats, gloves, and flowered parasols, much of it sized for little ones. There’s also obvious relish in setting the perfect table through the extensive selection of teapots, cozies, dessert plates, and other rose-festooned bits of shabby chic, making sure you have all the proper ritual elements right down to the gold-plated sugar tongs.
