The Victorian era in England ran the gamut of fashion styles - and Candy Apple Costumes has them all in our wide array of Victorian costumes. While known to many for elegance, the age of Queen Victoria was also a time of romanticism, technological advancement and the rise of the middle class. Our Victorian costumes for women and girls include sweeping Southern Belle dresses, English nanny outfits and dazzling petticoats. If you have a twisted sense of humor, a Lizzie Borden costume may be up your ally. Men and boys can be a fine Dickens gentleman, invoke Jules Verne's science fiction with a steampunk costume or get in touch with their inner Gothic vampire.
All of our stunning Victorian costume choices are made to quality standards that you just can't find in a big box store. Make sure to check our sizing chart as well since most of our adult and child costumes come in multiple sizes. If you want to be a sweet chimney sweep, sassy saloon Madame, inquisitive Holmes and Watson duo or any other type of yesteryear icon, you've come to the right place. Visit our Civil War Costumes, Steampunk Costumes, Wild West Costumes, Circus Costumes and Newsboy Costumes for more 1800s costumes that will grab everyone's attention.
Victorian Era Costume Ideas
