This page is meant to hold all the images of historic costumes I find that have features–or whole looks–that I find intriguing and inspirational (aka “costume porn” as Tara Maginnis terms images that make costumers weak in the knees) . If I ever manage to get around to the inspired project, I’ll move the images to the new precis page. In the meantime, I hope you find these as drool-worthy as do I.
