Fashions for the Fantasist
"Thy petticoat of sendle white
~~ Greensleeves, traditional 16th Century lyrics
Good Morrow, fair Lady (or Gent, as may be)! You have reached Greensleeves Garb,
where can be found my own hand-made costumes, both historical and fantastic.
I believe within us all is a
sense of fantasy - a wish to be transported to another time, another realm.
Clothing is one of the best ways to accomplish this, and I make it my aim to provide clothing that's
not only comfortable but beautiful, for "a thing of beauty is a joy forever!"
A major source of inspiration
in many of my costumes is Pre-Raphaelite art. Strictly speaking, the
Pre-Raphaelite movement began in 1848 and continued through the 1920's. It proposed to transport
one to a world not entirely mythical, when beauty and grace and magic cohabited much more happily than now.
My costumes attempt to do the
same. Whether it is a gown fit for Guinevere, a fantastical Faery dress,
a proper Renaissance lady's attire or your own dream-gown, you'll find it here. If you don't see what
you're looking for, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do! Meanwhile, enjoy your look around.
