It’s that time of year again…
When ornaments crowds the shop windows, the candy flows freely, the candles are being lit and everyone waits in anticipations…
The best time of year is finally here…
I’m sure most of you seen lots of pretty Victorian and 1910s fancy party costumes,
but here are a few new to me, (and some old, that I just love to much not to show).
Perhaps this can inspire some new fancy Halloween costumes.
My absolute favorite pic (I have it both printed and framed in my sewing room, and printed on a fabric bag which I love).
1920s Arabian Night, whats not to love.
Gamer, geisha or (?) green flower.
Victorian goes 18th century, regency and gypsy.
More gypsys, Egyptian and a housemaid.
I’m not sure what this two are suppose to be, but a Victorian woman in pants must be shown.
Love the Edwardian Cleopatra, and the harlequin costume looks almost wearable as it is.
A few costumes for the young adults. Why not dress as a patriot, a shepherdess, a housemaid or a which.
Speaking of witches, another one from about 1880s.
And the real deal.
They really did the witches better back then, don’t you think…
I’ve seen lots of these clown costumes around, but I don’t get it – is there something I’m missing here? Why are they so popular?
The Victorians really knew how to dress up in costume.
And the Edwardians wasn’t that bad either.
Good to know that (evil) costuming parents existed back then too.

In the plate with the lady wearing the pants, I think the lady on the right might be Spanish, wearing a black lace mantilla. Maybe the two are in folkloric costume!
I think you are right.
Thanks for noticing.
I love these! I agree that the Harlequin costume is very wearable. I wouldn’t mind having one of those for myself!
Me too, that jacket (minus the crazy collar) are so pretty.
These are awesome! Thanks for sharing! Do you mind if I share your link on Facebook?
