CorpGoth Goes 16th Century
This is a new 16th-c. gown I made last year & finally wore at a Society for Creative Anachronism event, where I'm Lady Violet Ruthvene, a 1580s lowland Scots gentlewoman. And I'm still gothy. My historically accurate heraldry even has a bat on a purple ground. And, as you can see, I wear dark colors. Same person, whatever the era ;-)
I wrote a little background on making the gown for on my costume website too.
