Bianca's Historic Costumes
Bianca's rents and sells historic costumes ranging from ancient times to the Roaring 20s, including Victorian and Edwardian garb. They're based in east Long Beach but don't have a walk-in location. Costume rentals are by appointment, and sales via Etsy and eBay. It's clear that they know their stuff. In the Victorian section, you'll learn about the Crinoline Period (1850-1869) and the three movements of the Bustle Period (1870 to 1900). And yes, they do have Steampunk. Last we checked, there were 30 reviews on Yelp, all of them five stars.
