Taking inspiration from Art Noveau peacock feathers and original Victorian gowns, this spectacular costume also incorporates Manga elements and a Bar.

Yes, thats right, A bar.... cunningly disguised within the bustle cage, when a tassel is pulled, the curtains swish aside to r4eveal a fully stocked cocktail cabinet!

It was created for Weekend At the Asylum, the UK's biggest steampunk convention in Lincoln as a showpiece for my company It was designed to be comfortable so it IS possible to sit down in the bustle, without disturbing the Bar!

The price for this outfit as it is would include

Velvet "trumpet" underskirt from an original victorian pattern
Rigid bustle cage with bar section, lights and curtain mechanism (alcohol and accessories NOT included)
Over bustle swag and drape
Tailored jacket with strap sleeves and corsage detail
Huge "My fair lady" style hat
fully steel boned under corset
Clockwork key by Herr Doktor

However please note I am very happy to take orders for just individual parts of the costume, made to measure in your own colours/specifications.

If you would like to learn more about how this gown was created or see more pictures of my costumes then do have a look at my blog and "like" my Emillyladybird page on Facebook.
