"an obsession with historical fashion needs an outlet."

A collection of fashion that I found fabulous, with a little bit of crazy mixed in.
Got a question? Shoot!

Okay goths of the internet why is no one talking about Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty? It’s a Victorian/Goth interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, with a vampire-fairy plot twist that worked very, very well. I’ve never been so emotionally engaged by a ballet. If its run didn’t end in a week I’d call it a must-see. 

That looks STUNNING. And mmmm, red brocade. 

Gorgeous costumes!!!

I need to go to New York now

STUNNING gown, and I feel like this would definitely be more relatable to modern audiences.. I never understood why Hollywood felt the need to “dumb it down” for viewers.
