You’ll definitely keep everyone guessing what spells and mayhem you’ll conjure up next wearing these curved, black horns. Made from lightweight foam, they are threaded onto an adjustable clear elastic head strap that passes around the back of your head and under your hair so they look like they’re a perfectly natural outgrowth of your true nature.
Apron dresses were a staple of Viking attire. These overdresses had shoulder straps, a simple tubular shape, and end at mid-calf. Also known as smokkr or hangerok (sometimes spelled hangeroc or hangerock), there were two versions. Our Astrid Overdress is of the more elaborate style. It is trimmed with embroidery work at the top, hem, and along the lace back. Two silver-colored brooches hold the straps in place at the front. You can also use your own brooches or sew the straps in place to the desired length. A long strand of beads is included to hang between the brooches.
Flaunting the regal finesse of a doomed age, this guillotine blade bears the traces of aristocratic life, ending with a fine drop of blood. From Alchemy Gothic, the guillotine blade is English antiqued pewter and the blood drop is a fine Austrian crystal.
This pewter necklace from Alchemy depicts two intertwined, mirrored dragons, one black, one silver, with a transparent red enameled heart at the center. A red Swarovski teardrop crystal is suspended below.
This long corset is a grey-on-grey brocade fabric with satin lining and a pointed, ducktail back. The large grey velveteen sleeve cuffs can be unzipped for a totally different look. Lace-up shoulders and front allow for a unique fitted look for just about any shape.
As the pirate ships dock at Port Royal you will certainly turn heads wearing this natural colored 100% cotton chemise. The elastic neckline gives you the versatility to wear this piece on or off the shoulders and the gathered full skirt can be worn down or can be ruched up for a bawdier look. A lovely netted gold lace accents the short sleeves and hemline. A lace-up back allows for a perfect fit every time, while an invisible zipper at the one side makes slipping this form-fitted garment on and off a breeze.
Queens, ladies and other royalty of middle ages wore elegant mantles as a sign of high fashion. Made of a white, sheer poly fabric, the mantle has been edged on three sides with an exquisite golden beaded trim.
These soft cotton velvet rings have a stiff, fiberfill. Lavishly decorated with matching metallic ribbon, braided metallic trim, sparkling faux jewels, and a rear bow with flowing ribbons, they come in four colors: Gold, Black, Green, or Red.

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?
