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!

Review of: Anastasia Crown

This was bought as a special wedding gift this summer. The crown was crafted very nicely, and the red gem option was perfect as an homage to her birthstone. So many gems  on this and not one out of place or missing- the box was damaged in transit but the internal packaging was safe even for an egg! An added bonus was the set of pins included to secure it upon the head. This makes a fine gift or costume addition for any and all sorts of occasions!!!

Review of: Hand-Woven, Hand-Stitched Chemise

this is the best chemise i have ever had, I will tell you I loved it! I wore it as a night gown, I wore it under skirts, I wore it to death. I bought it 13 yrs ago for 40  $ and it lasted 5 yrs, I did wear it a lot! I went back to buy another and the price went up to 80ish so I declined. So today I thought now 80$ , it was worth it. I just came one to buy it again. yikes.I must admit it is a great chemise, but! from 40ish to 144 in 13 yrs?
