Vampires have enthralled and haunted our imaginations long before Bram Stoker introduced us to the iconic Dracula in the 19th century. While Dracula remains a legendary figure in vampire lore, he wasn't the first of his kind to grip audiences. In 1816, a character named Lord Ruthven emerged as a sensation.

While initially portrayed as a human representation of the renowned Lord Byron in Lady Caroline Lamb's novel "Glenarvon," Lord Ruthven's identity underwent a dark transformation. Later that same year, in Dr. John William Polidori's short story "The Vampire," he was reborn as a sinister vampire, cementing his place in dark literary folklore.

Our 19th-century costume captures the essence of Victorian-era vampires, echoing the dark allure of figures like Lord Ruthven. When you wear this authentically designed set, you'll be transported back to when the night was filled with whispered tales of these nocturnal beings. Don it, and embody the terror and elegance of the original vampires.

⭐ The Base Costume includes: (3 PCS)
1. Victorian Black Frock Coat (fully lined) - Crafted from Black Gaberdine, this Victorian-style frock coat is lined with a poly/cotton twill blend. It features elegant velvet collars for a touch of sophistication.

2. Victorian-era satin red paisley-patterned waistcoat. Its smooth, no-lapel neckline and sharp, pointed hem complement the tone-on-tone design.
