Welcome to Charm City Curios, where I specialize in hand-made accessories, jewelry, costumes, corsetry, and intriguing original designs in clothing, millinery, and much more!

Some of the things you will be seeing here are size-custom waist-cincher corsets, full-on corsets, skirt, blouses, bloomers, and accessories in the style of Lolita, Steampunk, Gothica, and Victoriana.

I gladly welcome custom requests!
Examples of my other work can be found on my website - elisabethcurley.virb.com, and DeviantArt page - peramore.deviantart.com

Occasionally I'll sell a full costume as a set.
So keep an eye out for my own personal designs of rather
well-known characters in movies, stories, and anywhere else!

This purchase had both a good and bad side to it. First the good side, First of all the hat is freaking adorable! It fits wonderfully and it looks great. Great buy on that account. nNow for the bad side. The hat looks great, but it don't expect it to get to your home in time. I ordered my hat on December 27 2012 and just today it got here! This hat was supposed to be finished and shipped in two weeks and instead it got to me in about 3 months! Good hat, bad service.

I waited 2 months for a hat that was said to be done in two weeks, I contacted CharmCity and was told it'd be out that Monday. When it did not come I contacted her and asked for an eta. I wait 2 weeks for a reaponse and got nothing. When I canceled my order I recieved a very rude message saying I had no patience and if I had only waited the hat would have been sent. I personally will not be coming back here again.

Best seller I've encountered on Etsy, hands down. She handled my confusing and complicated custom order like a pro: quick response time, shipped to me EARLIER than I expected and was so incredibly sweet the entire time. Product was perfect and exactly what I requested. Will buy from this store again! Thanks so much!

About

Costumes and Creations in Charm City

Charm City Curios came into existence as a way to market my concept of 'everyday costume'. I define this as an ensemble or outfit consisting of many parts which, when worn as one, create a character or creature. But as separate pieces worn with staples from a personal wardrobe could be an outfit for a picnic, going to the beach, work, or anything imaginable!

My inspiration comes from the macabre; Lolita, Goth, and Steampunk subcultures; the Victorian era, video games and other geekery; and elegant designs that I find in the fashion world as well as the natural world.

Girly things are my main forte, but I also enjoy tailored menswear, so plan to see some items like stylized vests and shirts for your beau in the near future!

I currently reside with my father in the "Charm City" of Baltimore, where he obligingly lets me utilize much of his apartment as my studio and workspace.

Hello! I hope you enjoy the things I have for sale in my store. I strive to be original and create for the masses. The shop name stems from my living in Baltimore and being immersed in so many different inspirations and time-periods that it can only be described as curious. That and I have an innate obsession with anything Alice in Wonderland. :3 If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail or convo me!

Payment
Any Payment MUST be received within 48 hours of purchase. Any transaction will be canceled if the payment and/or communication is not made within 48 hours. Payment will only be returned to you upon some grievous mistake -I- have made.
Shipping
Anything I make will have a time-line of production within its listing, and shipping of the item will occur a few days after completion. If you think something needs shipping insurance, please let me know. I will not provide this service otherwise. If you need something to be shipped faster, I will do so, just let me know. I have NO control over an item once it is placed in the postal service's hands, therefore I am sorry to say that I am not liable for their misplacement of your item. I cannot simply send you another, as it is not worth my paying for my own item because the post office screwed up. International shipping can be tricky, as I cannot track the item once it leaves the US. If an item somehow returns to me, I will certainly try to ship it back out, but I repeat, I will not send replacements due to someone else's mistake. PLEASE BE SURE YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS IS CORRECT! I AM NOT LIABLE FOR YOUR MIS-SHIPPED ITEM BECAUSE YOUR ADDRESS IS WRONG! As a customer, you too have responsibility to ensure your item is properly shipped.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will not be doing any refunds or exchanges. You need to be diligent as a customer in making sure you have the correct product in the size and style that you wished to purchase. Refunds and exchanges will only be offered if there was a mistake made by me. For instance - Shipping you the incorrect size.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will do custom orders! In fact, creativity isn't always turned on, so I would appreciate some input on new ideas! Just convo me or toss me an e-mail!
