Gothic Squid Fashion is Complete with Tentacles

I just love these fashion concepts. Although whimsical and kind of freakish in nature, the motifs in this series are sort of Gothic and therefore dark and quirky. This fantastic collection comes from the Vecona Fashion Show that took place in November 2008 in Brugge, Belgium.

This eccentric “gallery of the absurd” is called Cabaret Gothique and the cabaret part of the collection can be easily observed is all its stunning but playful glory in their turn-of-the-century vintage corsets, dresses and the general ambiance of mischievous and high-spirited fun.

But what I find most stunning, fantastic and Gothic about these costumes is the octopus dress with its curved tentacles.

This fashion show was nothing short of fantastic. Stats for Octopus Couture Trending: Older & Warm
