When it comes to Victorian costumes, there are plenty of options to choose from, for both girls and boys. The clothing from this era is instantly recognisable and makes for a charming fancy dress costume. From the poor Victorian girls' outfit, which consists of typical dress with an apron attached, to the boys' poor outfits, which range from the scraggly top hat and faux waistcoat jacket combination, to the classic, 'Oliver Twist' ensemble, made up of a peaked cap, open waistcoat, long shorts and top.
Of course, for the girls, there is also a Victorian maid outfit which perfectly encapsulates the look of this era; the mop hat and long dress with an apron sewed on and lace cuffs are a great choice. At the other end of the spectrum are the 'posh' Victorian costumes for children; the gentlemen's outfit is very fetching and consists of a bow tie, long top hat, waistcoat and a dinner jacket to complete the look. For the ladies, there is a pretty dress with lace edging and a matching attached hat.
A Victorian fancy dress party is the perfect opportunity to wear a costume from the Gothic fiction era of the period; vampires were a particularly popular choice of villain in these novels and are the perfect fancy dress costume, especially at Halloween. This Victorian vampire costume comes with a long black and red dress, with draped sleeves and a dramatic high collar; teamed with some fake blood and face paint, it makes for a great costume.
