19th century vest. The velvet front-flap Regency trousers were custom made by my high school theater pal Andrea Edelman, who is an amazing historical seamstress and milliner. The deerskin gloves are part of my pirate/swashbuckler ensemble, as are the replica firearms, black shirt, knives and baldric (in which the pirate cutlass has been replaced with a mallet for stake-driving). The boots are one of two pair I own for costume work, and are best suited for later-period endeavors (the others being massive gray cavalier boots). The black suede jacket was one of those amazing $16 Goodwill finds, and is incredibly versatile. Add in the brass-handled cane, silver cross and bottle of "holy water", and you've got a vampire-slaying, demon-exorcising, ghost-hunting, werewolf-shooting badass. Can't wait to show it off at the neighbors' Halloween party on Saturday. More pics (with me actually wearing the costume) to come, I promise.
