Edwardian outfit – pictures

Last April I wore my full Edwardian outfit for a yearly fantasy event. There are always a lot of photographers present, and I met up with the same photographer who took the latest pictures of my 1860s ballgown, so I now have some very nice images of my outfit! All images were taken at Elfia, on the grounds of Castle de Haar (restrored from a medieval ruin between 1895 and 1912, so the outfit fits quite well with the grounds 😉 ).

I wore nearly my full Edwardian outfit, I only substituted my shift with a thermo-shirt as it was about 8C outside (seriously, it was the 25th of april, stupid weather). Luckily, we did manage to keep it mostly dry with only brief showers. Those are also the reason for the umbrella I’m carrying in some of the images.

What I made in this outfit: Bust-improvers, Corset, Corset-cover, Drawers, Petticoat, Blouse, Skirt, Jacket, Hat & Purse. The gloves are vintage and the umbrella was a necessary evil because of the weather. (by the way, an umbrella combined with a hat this size doesn’t work, no way to keep it centered above you as the hat is in the way. I just fled inside when it started to rain).

Elfia

At Easter weekend I went to the Elf Fantasy Fair, or Elfia as it’s called from this year on. It’s an annual fantasy events and one of the biggest in Europe. One of the best things is that nearly all visitors come in some sort of costume, if you’re not dressed up, you’ll be a minority. This event caters towards all types of fantasy scenes, so you’ll see everything from fairies and trolls to pirates, to stormtroopers and from steampunk to historical to lolita style costumes. Many people spend a lot of time on how they look, so it’s always great to just look at all the pretty people. There are also a lot of photographers who just come to make pictures of the visitors.

For me this event was perfect to finally wear my black 1860’s dinner dress, and lucky for me the weather was perfect! I now also finally have some pictures of me wearing the dress. For the rest of the post, photo’s!
