It is so close to convention season I can taste it! I realized I don't have much to wear. Well, I don't have anything NEW to wear! I wish I had the motivation to make a beautiful fairy costume or gothic punk rocker outfit, but sadly I don't. These gorgeous pieces by Darkstar open up a bunch of options for me not only for dressing up, but even for daily wear.
The Black Velvet Red Satin Medieval Gothic Lace Corset Top is gorgeous. It is made with 80% rayon and 20% polyester and comes in sizes 1X-3X. It sounds super comfy, perfect for wandering around. In the front there is black lace over what looks to be red satin. I love how the sleeves are also layered over each other!
I feel that this Black Red Cobweb Satin Lace Ruffle Tiered Gothic Bridal Skirt would be a great match for the above top. The full length of the skirt is 38 inches and can fit sizes Small-1X. It is made with black satin and cobweb lace. This would also be a great skirt for a corset top.
Here's a very simple but elegant Black Purple Tie Die Gothic Corset Long Gown with Sleeves. It is made of embroidered rayon, jacquard, and georgette. It will fit a size 1X-2X and will cinch up to 4 inches in the front. I can definitely see myself wearing this on an ordinary day. Honestly, it would be great to lounge around in too, but I'm not here for pajamas!
I am digging this awesome Gothic Punk Medieval Black Buckle Corset Dress. It is made from tulle and cotton and can fit sizes 1X-2X. There are buckles on the sides that can be adjusted to fit however you would like! I can't see how long this dress is, but I think simple black leggings would be perfect to wear with it. It's adjustable and a little edgy, my sort of perfect!
Renaissance never goes out of style in my book! This Black Purple Gothic Velvet Georgette Mesh Renaissance Blouse is made with velvet and georgette mesh big fitting blouse with sequins and beautiful embroidery. The sizes are 2X-4X for this gorgeous top. I love the torn look at the bottom, it gives it a very fairy look.
This Black Red Satin Lace Cascading Gothic Renaissance Skirt fits sizes small-2X. The underskirt is made from red satin with black lace mesh layering over the whole skirt. The full length of the skirt is 40 inches! It love the lace running down on the bottom. This would be a wonderful addition to a medieval costume.
This is another gorgeous Renaissance skirt. The Long Purple Black Velvet Jacquard Satin Gypsy Renaissance Skirt comes in size 2X-5X. They are made with satin and velvet tiers so that it is actually thicker. It's still winter time so I could wear this now without too many layers. The design is fairly basic, which would make going anywhere very easy!
This is definitely my favorite skirt. The Red Brocade Gothic Medieval Punk Chains Long Skirt runs in size Medium-2X. I love the corset style on the top with all the amazing straps. Also, I love the beautiful rose embroidery on the bottom. Not only that, the skirt is fully elasticized! It is edgy, comfortable, and gorgeous.
This glamorous Gothic Renaissance Medieval Black Brocade Roses Corset would pair well with any of the skirts above! It runs in sizes 1X-2X and is 100% cotton. It has adjustable straps and front zip closure and lace up on the back, will allow for yours or my perfect fit.
