Period Corsets Brings Structure to Cosplayer's Outlander Ensemble

Period Corsets and cosplayers rejoice, we've found a corset match made in heaven! Costume enthusiasts from all around use Period Corsets as their secret weapon to provide the perfect shape beneath their ensembles or as part of their final costume.

What is a costume without the proper structure? Amanda from Analeigh Cosplay knows a thing or two about finding the perfect details for each outfit. Amanda was our lucky winner in one of our Period Corsets giveaways. Her prize of our 18th c. stays made of golden yellow silk, was the perfect match for her Outlander cosplay. 

Period Corsets turned to the 18th c. for inspiration on this beautiful flatlined corset, made of rich yellow Dupioni silk with white ribbon ties and modest tabs. A beautiful addition to any Beauty and the Beast ensemble or, in this case, the perfect base for a Claire Fraser costume.

 Used as a hidden layer to provide the perfect shape, our corsets and skirt supports give cosplayers and costumers that extra detail needed to achieve the right look. When worn as underwear, a corset can help to transform the body's shape and create a great base for your costume. When made in gorgeous fabrics, all of our pieces also can work beautifully as the costume itself. With the growing popularity of corsets used as costumes in cosplay, Period Corsets comes to the rescue to work with our clients on their custom ideas.
