Review of: Chocolate Brown Long Skirt
This Chocolate Brown Skirt is wonderful. This is a piece of “regular” clothing, not costume- like at all. The fabric is a lightweight, durable, a beautiful, chocolate brown - love the color! I’d wear this to work if the pleating were just a tad bit less but it’s perfect for my historical presentations. It pairs well with a crisp white peasant blouse and is historically relevant for many periods. A small crinoline may be worn to dress it up but it’s a nice ladies‘ travel, leisure or peasant style as is. I’m thrilled to find this versatile, genuine garment in period style. I’m 5’9”, size 10 with a smaller waist, ordered the large, length and waist was perfect. Highly recommend.

Review of: Viceroy Steampunk Boots for Women
These are excellent, the size ran true and they were as good as we had hoped. Looking forward to the first time they're included with full costume.

Review of: Venetian Renaissance Carnival Dress
From the picture, I thought this gown would be more of an mauve color, but it's a pretty periwinkle blue.
It's a lovely style, and looks great with or without my Museum Replicas farthingale. I prefer it with the farthingale to keep the hem from touching the floor.
I'm 5'9" with a longer torso, about 190 lbs. I ordered a large. I was worried the waist and skirt might be too short, but both are just fine. I was able to slip the laced gown over my head, then tighten it with the waist ties, no handmaiden needed.
The gown is 100% polyester with a 100% cotton lining. The cotton lining isn't ideal to slide over my cotton farthingale, but it wasn't terrible. Might make a silk slip to go between the two for maximum drape.
Love it, love it, love it!
