Finish the ensemble with the included period-inspired cape and shroud yourself in mystery. Dare to be debonair and alluring – this costume spells power, wealth, and best of all: style.



For ladies, many people think of the Victorian sassy pirate costume or the Victorian vampiress costume.  First, you want to find a floor-length gown that is rather fitting on the upper portion of your body and flowing on the bottom.

Victorian outfits for women tend to be very detailed, so the more detailed the designs are, the better the dress would be.  Just make sure that the details are mostly pearls and lace since these were extremely popular during Victorian era.  To top off the look, opt for a shawl in a matching color instead of a coat.


Victorian Vampira Adult

The Victorian era: a time when wealth meant power and power meant looking great. Women lavished themselves with only the best. Look your most exquisite and richly adorned in the Victorian Vampira costume. This period-inspired dress features a silver/black bodice and a shimmering black skirt. A lush black capelet, lovely lace trimmed bustle, and ribbon choker are also included to complete this darkside damsel’s design.


The gentlemen, the famous Victorian vampire or pirate costume comes to mind.  To pull this off it would be a good idea to rent a suit with straight pants and tapered at the ankle.  The shirt would be rather fitting to the body, and it goes the same for the coat.  Choose a suit that is colored white, gray or stripped.  Accessorize your costume accordingly.  Make sure that you wear cufflinks and a gold button for the shirt.



Victorian Lolita Adult Costume

The Victorian Lolita costume includes a red coat with black trim, white lace collar, and attached white under dress. The coordinating choker is also included to tie together this sexy seductress’ ensemble.
