Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 until 1901, but her influence is still felt today. I recently watched "Victoria," a TV series based on her early life. The story began when she was only 18 and inherited the throne. I enjoyed the romance, the costumes and the set decor which were beautifully detailed. It was a lovely way to learn more about this extraordinary woman.
Nowadays we forget that the reality of living in Victorian England was harsh. Certain aspects of the era have become celebrated as part of today's popular culture, especially in fashion and decor.
Steampunk has been described as neo-Victorian. Victoriana describes decorative items that were either produced during the Victorian period or in the style of objects from that time. Several items that show this Victorian influence are still available to buy in the Starplaza. My favorites include:
Antique Diamond Earrings -Epiphany- 13 SD
Way Coat -Fallen Angel- 6 SD (this is for men and does not show up in the shop, you need to search the catalog to find it)
Pretty Bird Cage -Pretty n'Love Decor- 5 SD
Steampunk Wizard Cat -Magic Emporium - 16 SD
I would love to see your Victorian inspired suites. Please leave a note in the comments and I will visit.
