I’m not really obsessed with military fashion, it’s just a phase These outfits were designed for the Genre Military event this last month, and are now available in the main shop. There are two uniform styles, long jacket and short jacket, for the Army of the Lion, and the Army of the Dragon. The short jacket includes a hud so you can change the color. Each army has embossed symbols on the jacket, military cap, and trouser legs. Matching ankle bootlets too. The Dragon uniform got blogged too! Check out this great blogpost!
Madison is the culmination of lots of research, looking for women in the Civil War. I found some very interesting articles and photos – see my pinterest list for a few – but of course, my Madison outfit is a bit … shinier… than anything historically accurate.
No woman fighting during the civil war would have been seen in something so flashy and extravagant. Well, maybe in a dress review? Post-civil war parties?
The jacket is all over detail, with custom embossed roses on the lapel, collar and sleeves, brass buttons and chains. The trousers have rivets down the sides that match the buckle/strap rivets on the boots.
Each piece is available separately, but you save on the bundle. The bundle includes cap with goggles, jacket, trousers, boots, and bonus blouse with collar, cravat/scarf and cameo fastener.
I’ve introduced Madison in four colors: brown/gold, black/silver, red/brass and green/gold.
More colors to come!
