"an obsession with historical fashion needs an outlet."

A collection of fashion that I found fabulous, with a little bit of crazy mixed in.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

My Scarlet Witch cosplay at Motor City Comic Con 2014.

 I’m quite proud of the jacket and the head piece.  Everything was made my me from the gloves to the pants, spats (I used spats to create the same line down to the shoes) and covered a pair of character shoes to match.  As a nod to the original, I lined the inside with bright pink taffeta.   

the pack survives.
