There was a whole exhibit dedicated to Victorians – including victorian fashion.  These images came from the garden of delights (or something) and included fabulous hats. Loved the lighting in here.

I might make a post of historical fashions at some point (i’ve collected quite a few pictures on this theme) but for now – look at the fancy dresses! The hats! The tight man-pants!

the glass did make it a wee bit difficult to photograph from some angles, but I think these turned out alright.

If only all men wore clothes like this now – life would be a better (tailored) place. Hop to it, gentlemen.

There’s a whole section in the exhibit that’s a walk-through victorian town centre, and one of the ‘shops’ was a menswear tailor. I nearly screamed with joy. There were cases of old buttons, spools of thread, scissors etc as well as dated hats and fabrics. Probably one of my favourite displays thus far, it just seems so authentic. Grant Davy, that hat is looking at you.

I loved these details – here is an open door within the paper house, with actual lights inside. Maybe it’s a inner fascination with doll houses, but I could stare at these things for hours and hours.#actuallyachild
