Regency Gentleman - Vincent by AtticRaiders
Regency Gentleman - Vincent
Based upon a handsome book character - this costume was inspired by #MaryRobinetteKowals Glamourist book series. Debuted on the 2015 Steampunk Cruise, I had the pleasure of wearing it and enjoying a private photo shoot with the author who was in her Regency garb as well.

The entire costume is appropriate for an evening formal ball in the early 1800's, with the blue color and metal buttons of the jacket indicating the military background of the gentleman. As someone written of some wealth, the costume also carried a lot of white to reflect that and his status in society  - but not overly much as the character was written as a fine but reserved gent.

The fob watch and military badge of honor, while not Regency accurate, were designed by me for this costume.

I made the entire costume, including the  tall socks and shoes (not shown)
Photography, Hair, Wig Build/styling and Makeup by me

I am obviously a fan of the book series and highly recommend it for those who enjoy period adventure/romance novels. The author herself is also a charm.

Thanks to an excellent team of folks who played along, I knocked off one of my ultimate bucket list photo shoot ideas I've been itching to do for 3 years now.

Costumes are handmade and custom designed by me for this photo shoot. Mostly made out of recycled materials :D
