The Victorian fashion era began with Queen Victoria’s reign in 1837 and ended in 1901, upon her death. It marked a pivotal time in Britain’s history and around the world. In fashion, the Victorian era is an elaborate display of wealth, economic class, beauty, and purpose both for women and men. The New Mexico Gunfighters strive to achieve a period correct wardobe for the specific role each of actors are playing.
Many brick-and-mortar retail stores have outrageous prices on their Victorian gowns and accessories. On this page, we have attempted to present the viewer with online options that bring the cost down for you to a more reasonable purchase amount. The first online site to check out is eBay. There are many different Victorian outfits and gowns for both women and men.
Find great deals on wardrobe
When I started working as a re-enactor performing in Old Wild West shows, I did not know where to begin my journey. Luckily, I found some great deals online. I found some reputable eBay stores that specialize in handmade historic costumes. I have my favroite eBay store but she frequently sells out quickly so you have to grab them before they are gone.
