On Sunday afternoon, I finished off another cowboy and began painting my packs of West Wind's London Thugs and London Mob. I also finished the last figure in the London Gentlemen pack. However, when it comes to Victorian clothing, I'm no expert. So, like most people, I look online!
When it comes to researching Victorian clothing, I have found Gentleman's Emporium, a Victorian and Western reenactor dealer, to be of utmost help, even if their store name conjures images of pole-dancing. Plenty of ideas for painting clothing. Plus. their section of full outfits reads like an novel, with named character's and their backgrounds--very handy for playing RPGs or skirmish games! Finally, they have a nifty steampunk section as well. Check them out.
