57 Victorian-Inspired Reinventions

— May 10, 2011 — Fashion
The post-modern world is known to re-use or reinvent inspiration from the past. Everything from the caveman to disco era has resurfaced to be modernized, and the Victorian era is no exception as shown by these Victorian-inspired reinventions.

These reinventions are proof that the lace loving era is still on track with the times. With everything from Victorian Jedi weapons to Victorian fanny packs, it's clear that Queen Victoria still has some influence on the world more than 100 years later. Although some era reinventions can be a butcher on the classics, these Victorian-inspired reinventions stay true to the classic, but with a modern twist.

Check out the gallery to see some amazing Victorian-inspired reinventions and you might just want to put on a powdered wig and corset afterwards.
