A stay of corsets

Miss Gabrielle Riel

My second post about Victorian lovelies include Gabrielle Riel, Katrina Pugilist and Lola79 Heinrichs. Katrina is the designer of Kat's Meow, a costume shop with a range of products, and is wearing one of her Victorian dresses. I do hope she makes more, the shape and construction are definitely lovely, with a flowing, low-necked shape straight from fantasy novels. Lola is in a Black Canary dress, bustled and high-necked. Her garb borders on the Edwardian, and she's managed to make it fey and gothic with her accoutrements.

Gabrielle Riel is a preeminent Caledonians, a DJ and radio station owner, and is wearing a dress made specially for her by M'Lady Fashions (an excellent Victorian frock shop). She looks very Gibson Girl, and is, in fact, wearing Miriel's Gibson Girl hair!

These three looks had me thinking about the movie "Take me to St. Louis," so I stuck these three ladies on the new sim Festivale. They look all ready for a nice constitutional around the fairgrounds! While photographing, I realized how bloody difficult it is to take a good photo of an enormous skirt. I'm working on it...
