I love Etsy. It’s also kind of a reverse guilty pleasure/confession of mine. I like to shop, I wouldn’t say anymore than the average woman, and possibly less, but I am addicted to the convenience of online shopping. I’m also an Amazon Prime member, and that’s its own full-on confession. So, I also try to shop outside of Amazon a lot of times, and Etsy with its street cred as a viable marketplace for independent crafts vendors to sell their wares seems like as good a place as any. So, I thought I’d create a short content series of my Etsy finds.
Our stop on our this week’s journey through Etsy land is a store called Midnight Breeze Designs. (Note: They used to have an Etsy store, but now it looks like they’re marketing directly from their own website. I’m going to allow them to be grandfathered in.)
Midnight Breeze Designs, from central Texas, specializes in the sumptuous fashions of the Renaissance and Victorian eras. Whether it be a design you’re itchin’ to have them create for a special occasion or one of their designs, they have some beautiful outfits available. They work with Renaissance faire cast & patrons, Madrigal & Theatre groups, LARPers and SCAers – all sorts of Romantic types! These dresses are the real deal, not costume dresses that will fall apart after one wear. Outfits are made to measure, so please allow around 6 to 8 weeks to receive your outfit – never wait until the last minutes ladies, especially this time of year when everyone is getting ready for the Faires! 🙂
One of my favorites in the store is this wonderful Ladies Renaissance Costume Dress Court Gown, Made to Order:
For the gents, there is this Mens Renaissance Costume Doublet/Custom Made:
And if you’re looking for a style a little lighter (I admit myself, it does get hot in all that fabric!), check out there Ladies Custom Medieval Renaissance Fantasy Gown Dress, which is available in your choice of colors:
