Victorian Goth

My new skirt and shirt arrived today, so I just had to do a little photoshoot with them. I burned my hand with a curling iron so I think it's only fair the pictures came out really nice ;D That and the fact that it started to rain the second my other half and me got outside with the camera, that justifies nice pics too.


The shirt and the lovely skirt are by Fan+Friend. They have very decent prices (even with the shipping and customs fees on top) and most items can be ordered in custom sizes. I might have to shorten the skirt a little bit, but a too long skirt is a million times better than a too short one, much easier to modify! I was very impressed with the sheer amount of fabric the skirt has: there's three layers of satin and ruffles on the edges. I didn't take into account when taking the measures that I might want to wear a corset underneath the skirt, but it still fits very nicely even when the waist sits a bit low, the draping hides anything!

The train might be hanging upside down ;P It was constantly raining just
a little bit, so we were in a hurry to snap pictures and get back inside before it
started pouring down.

The shirt is of the same satin fabric, it's thick and nice. It does have a little bit extra room in the back, but doesn't look too bad. It has lacing in the back for easy adjusting. The ruffles on the top really accentuate a slim waistline. Since it's sleeveless, I can wear it with jackets easily if I want to.

I should perhaps iron the backside.

The hat is by me. I'm wearing a corset beneath the shirt and the skirt, giving the outfit a more dramatic silhouette. I also have a cushion tied to my ass because the skirt was too flat without it ;D It was okay, but I wanted something that stands out even more, so I pinned satin ribbon to two corners of a cushion and tied it to hang from my waist. Cheap and easy, and it worked surprisingly well!

In these pictures the train is actually laid out nicely, it took me
time to notice it needs to be done for it to look decent ;P


I really like the waistline on this picture!
Ship ahoy!
This one shows the back of the shirt well, and how it sits on top of the corset.

  10. Vau, aivan upea asu! ♥ Materiaali sopii hyvin koko asuun, tuollainen himmeä kiilto näyttää hyvältä röyhelöiden ja laskoksien kanssa. ^^

    1. Kiitos paljon! Mä olin vähän epävarma satiinin suhteen, kun se joskus näyttää niin halvalta ja on sellasta ohutta lirua, mutta tää oli onneksi paksua ja laadukkaan oloista, ei sellasta surullista vuorisilkkilaatua ;D

  11. Joskus vuosia sitten tilasin enemmänkin vaatteita tuolta fan+friendiltä jolloin heillä oli paljon edullisemmatkin hinnat. Ennen siellä oli paljon enemmän hienoja malleja joita tilata, jotka nyttemmin on poistuneet :/

    1. Mäkin muistan miten joskus lyhyellä lolitakaudellani tilasin paidan ja olisko ollut alushameen, sillon valikoima oli toisenlainen. Nykyään taitavat painottaa cosplay-puolta. Tykkään kyllä silti paljon nykyvalikoimasta, erityisesti Doctor Who -lolimekko oli ihan loistava! Samoin mä aina kuolaan niitä rokokoo-henkisiä mekkoja.
