Victorian Death

A friend had a birthday party yesterday with a comic book theme. I was running late on planning my outfit, but decided that Death from Gaiman's Sandman would be an easy choice. I still kinda wanted to wear my Victorian skirt, so I went for a Victorian version. At least Dream changes his form to fit the culture he's in, so I thought Death can probably do that too. Delirium was at the party too ;P

A big thanks to Nina for the pictures!


I'm wearing a long sleeved shirt underneath a satin top with a high collar, and there's a corset under it all. I tried a tulle petticoat under the skirt and my bustle on top of the tulle, it seemed to work perfectly! The tulle made the skirt nice and full and kept me from stepping on the hem. My other half made the ankh from Fimo about an hour before the party started ;D He did a great job on it, it's the right size and the painted finish is gorgeous!

My version of Death is very keen on red wine ;P



Ikea does the best wine glasses! We got these a while ago and all other wine glasses
have just been gathering dust in the cupboard ever since.

I should have done Death's signature eyeliner squiggle a bit larger, now it gets lost in the
smoky eye a bit.


We had an afterparty at a local nightclub, the locals seemed restless when suddenly a pack of goths in weird costumes took over the dance floor to shake booty to eighties hits! Twerking gets a whole new meaning when you are wearing a bustle ;D

  1. Wow... Amazing! I should read the Gaiman series, have glanced at it at the library but never read it. Now got curious again, of course.

    1. Thank you so much! I think my other half did an amazing job on the ankh, he even printed one that was worn by Death to help with getting it just right :)

    1. Kiitos! Mä oon jo miettinyt että pitäiskö perustaa Karoliinan Asuvuokraamo kun on niin sääli pitää hienoja vaatteita kaapissa ison osan aikaa ;D

    1. Yes I do! Luckily sometimes it can be combined with dressing for events. These pics were taken while my other half was putting on moustache wax to get himself ready so we could go to the b-day party we dressed up for ;P

  8. I love the outfit so much! I am very jealous of your ankh, I guess making them is the only way to go now if you want a big one, you would not believe the hours I have spent looking for one like that! Were there any other members of the Endless there other than Delirium? I would love to see you two together! This makes me want to dress as Death again even more!

    I can't remember if you saw my recent post where my friend was Death and I was Delirium?

    1. Thank you! The glasses are just so great, ornamental but still functional and pretty sturdy, which is a great quality when living with cats who are interested in absolutely everything and like to poke their noses in glasses, then quickly run away ;D

  12. This is so great! I love the outfit in combination with your makeup! The small size of the signature eyeliner squiggle is quite an eyecatcher.
