Victorian Dresses, Steampunk Costumes and Olden Day Clothes from 1700-1800s

The 1700s and 1800s were quite a civilised era. A time in history where poets, novelists, scientists and inventors made their mark and are still quoted today.

Of course the Victorian era was also the time of the industrial revolution and the coming of Steampunk. If you’re wondering where to find a Victorian Steampunk costume, look no further than right here at Heaven Costumes.  Our collection of Steampunk clothing for dressing up are styled with all the traditional bells and whistles…… or cogs and chains to be more precise! You can grab a complete Steampunk costume for your Victorian era dress up idea or revolutionise your own unique look when you combine our fantastic Steampunk accessories including Steampunk hats, Steampunk goggles, Steampunk costume jewellery and more. With fastidious presentation, an austere look, repression in society but progression in technology, you’ll revel in your very own Steampunk costume for any Victorian theme party.

Do you need more dress up ideas for Victorian outfits or to depict the 1700s and 1800s? Florence Nightingale was a saintly legend of the era which makes an olden day nurse outfit a fantastic Victorian costume idea. Other famous people to dress up as from the era of Queen Victoria’s reign include US Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin the founding father of the United States.

A popular and recognisable Victorian dress to consider for your fancy dress party is one inspired by the lovely Queen of France. A Marie Antoinette costume is a wonderful olden days or Victorian era clothing choice to have on hand for a formal Soiree, and at Heaven Costumes you’ll also find the tall white Queen of France wig to perfectly finish off your Marie Antoinette costume.

British explorers and voyagers were aplenty in the 1700’s and 1800’s, with names like Matthew Flinders and Captain James Cook carving their place in the history books. You can choose a selection of our kids, women’s or men’s Colonial costumes as inspiration to dress up as these famous discoverers ( Peruke wigs and all!) which are great for historical depictions, school plays and of course just for a Victorian themed dress up outfit.

French Emperor Napoleon comes to mind as a pinnacle of dress up Colonial costumes, and is of course also available here at Heaven Costumes, your costume shop Australia for the best Victorian costumes this side of the 1800s. Whether you’re sprouting an Aquiline nose or not, a Napoleon costume is still a fantastic Colonial dress up idea!

Poor Victorian costumes are often needed for school productions such as the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist, which therefore makes them great kids Book Week costumes too! Colonial girl costumes, poor Victorian dress ups for kids, olden day dresses, pioneer outfits for adults and kids, and even Prairie dresses are all in stock and ideal for dressing up as people from the Victorian era.

The famously popular and historically informative TV show for kids (….. and adults!)  Horrible Histories, have also produced an interesting officially licensed collection of Horrible Histories costumes for children, of which many characters are straight out of the Victorian era and make brilliant kids dress up ideas too.

It’s easy to see that the Victorian costumes suggested thus far are all relatively tame in an historical sense and especially great for dressing up as famous historical figures however, we’ll end this spiel with one of the most feared people of the Victorian era, someone who has remained unidentified to this day. Jack the Ripper was the gruesome serial killer of the 1800’s Victorian era and dressing up in a Jack the Ripper costume as a Halloween fancy dress idea, will send fear into the hearts of anyone familiar with the atrocities of his actions during the otherwise and mostly civilised reign of Queen Victoria.
